For Years, Everyone Believed This Unique Cat Breed Had Gone Extinct

It was common belief that this cat was gone from the world forever... then one day, humans discovered a big surprise!

Surprise!

This breed of wild cat is native to the island of Crete in Greece, thus giving it its name: the "Cretan wildcat". It is known as "furogatos" in Greek and is slightly larger than a domestic cat.

The last time a cat of this breed was seen was in 1996, and most had presumed it now extinct in the world.
