The Scottish wildcat, sometimes called the Highlands tiger, is a diminishing breed and is the only wild feline on the island of Great Britain. There may be only one hundred wildcats left. The main reason it is disappearing as a distinct species is because of hybridization with the native domestic cat populations. It is often quite difficult to tell a wildcat from either a tame or feral cat from looks alone. Just don't try to pet one: Scottish wildcats are well documented for biting clean through gauntlets and hands. Perhaps if they started wearing the tam-o-shanter cap, it would be easier to identify them.
