The Manul Cat: World’s Most Expressive Cat

Manul cat is an endangered wild species found in the savannas and montane steppes of Central Asia. These are commonly known as Pallas’ cats. Their distinguished features include round eyes,  legs shorter than normal cats’ legs, and a wide, leveled face with broad-set ears. These features can sometimes lead to the funniest expressions, and Manul cats are known for it!

The Manul cats have a weak immune system due to their high-altitude habitat (more than 16,000 ft) which results in the lack of disclosure to various kinds of infections. This is the reason why Manul cats’ l survival rate is low, specially when taken to a different atmosphere. So this species going towards extinction is no surprise.

These cute pictures make Manul cats seem like a good option for a pet with hilarious expressions, but the high mortality rate associated with keeping them at lower altitude areas doesn’t allow them to be anywhere else but professional zoos.
