Stop everything you're doing because we just found the world's cutest cat species! Meet caracals, or to be more specific, baby caracals! These beautiful creatures have been religiously significant to the ancient Egyptians. They appear in their paintings, bronze figurines, whereas their sculptures were believed to guard the tombs of pharaohs.

Caracals live in Africa, the Middle East and The Indian subcontinent. Adults can weigh as much as 18kgs (40lbs), they can run at speeds of up to 50mph, and they can kill a grown man with their cuteness (ok, so maybe we made that last bit up). Caracals can be easily domesticated and even kept as pets. However, it may be illegal in some countries, so double-check before you decide to get one of these cuties!

Maybe I'm the only one, but I think this is a cat version of Lee Pace 5c7e370045...81f9a3.jpg 5c7e370045c07874c108f29ba381f9a3.jpg

Encouraging people to domesticate wild animals is wrong.

To the person in this photo: what happened to the mother of this kitten? The pet trade is terrible - only domestic cats should be pets.
