    I Think It's Time We Talk About The Margay

    AKA the cutest little rainforest cat you've never heard of.

    This, my friends, is a margay.

    It's out-of-control cute.

    Margays dwell in the rainforests of Central and South America.

    Scientists figured out that they are able to do all of their hunting in trees.

    If they weren't this cute, we'd feel bad for the squirrels but look at this guy roarin' away.

    (And the frogs and birds and other small tree-dwelling animals..)

    When they're not being ferocious hunters, margays are pretty much just 100% adorable.

    They have the best lil round ears.

    And dreamy eyes.

    Margays are sociable.

    And glamorous...

    ...And are pretty much the cutest cats in the rainforest.

    Which is why it's high time we start recognizing them for how awesome they really are.

    And so we say...

    Three cheers for margays!!

    ...Or, y'know, not. That's fine too.
