Felids - The Cats

Cats are usually loners... and wild felids are no exception to the rule (ok, we'll make an exception for African lions!). Because cats are prefer the single life, sometimes they are hard to understand or even identify. Heck, North America's big cat (the cougar) has a pretty bad - and undeserved - reputation. Did you know that these cats, which used to be all through the United States, play a critical role in keeping everything in nature healthy? Yes, they do!
