Leopardus geoffroyi is a small wild cat native to the southern and central regions of South America.
Leopardus geoffroyi is about the size of a domestic cat, but has numerous black spots and dark bands on the cheeks, head and neck as well as on the tail and limbs.
The background color of its fur varies from a brownish-yellow coat in the northern part of its range to a more grayish coat in the south.
The underbelly hair is cream-colored or even white. The backs of the ears are black with white spots. Black individuals are common.
Leopardus Geoffroyi litters consist of usually two to three kittens. The kittens are born with lush undercoats that are fully spotted.
Sexual maturity is at about 1 1/2 years. Leopardus Geoffroyi has been reported to breed easily in captivity.
Although disagreement exists in the breeding with domestics, some breeders have reported enough unrelated bloodlines to maintain genetic vigor.
CITES (Convention of Trade of Endangered Species of Flora and Fauna) enacted in 1974; an agreement between nations to regulate trade of endangered species, classified the Leopardus Geoffroyi or Geoffroys Cat as APPENDIX I, which means trade is strictly regulated, but is still allowed.
The Leopardus Geoffroyi or Geoffroys Cat greatest threat is from human disturbance of habitat and over harvest for the fur trade. The little cat has few predators in the wild.
