After bringing the kitten home, the man provided him with exceptional care and fed him milk from a bottle. The animal was content with his new owner and had established a home there.
The kitten grew over the course of several weeks. The man began to realize that the creature he had raised had little in common with a cat. It grew more and more obvious as it went on that it was a completely other species of mammal.
The man discovered that the creature was actually a fisher cat after contacting a veterinarian.
The smooth, gray-gray fur on the fishing cat is evenly spread across its body. It has longitudinal rows of small, uniformly spaced, varying-sized black or dark-brown patterns on its brown back.
An adult specimen weighs between 8 and 14 kg, with a tail length of 25 to 33 cm, and a body length of 75 to 86 cm.
Long, tapering legs with partly webbed toes and sharp, only partially retractable claws are present.
A person who enjoys hunting fish, snakes, frogs, crabs, crustaceans, crayfish, snails, and water insects in semi-aquatic habitats is known as a “fisherman cat.” It is also said to be deadly to mice, birds, reptiles, lambs, and calves.
