A European wildcat (Felis silvestris) pauses in a grassy field in Moldova in 2009.

These cats, known for their bushy tails, call Europe, North Africa, and the Black Sea coast home. They’re listed as a species of least concern and weigh between 3.5 and 18 pounds (1.6 and 8 kilograms).

Along with rodents and rabbits, European wildcats will also eat fish and amphibians.
