Melanistic Geoffrey’s Cat(oncifelas geoffroyi)
My name is “Panther” because I am ebony with very faint spots and I resemble a South American Puma. I weigh less than 10 pounds as a full grown female! But don’t let my small size fool you, I am not a housecat and quite fierce and quite shy. You may see my mate, “Brewster Cogburn” who is more outgoing.
The Geoffrey’s cat is protected by “CITES Appendix I” in all ranges where I exist in the wild. I am extremely endangered….only a few of my kind live in captivity in North America.
