DOMESTIC X RUSTY SPOTTED CAT HYBRIDS
There are unconfirmed reports that the Rusty-Spotted cat (F rubiginosa or Prionailurus rubiginosus), a close relative of the Asian Leopard Cat, interbreeds freely with domestic cats, but too little is known about this species to be certain. It weighs just over 2 lbs and is half the size of an average domestic cat. Its range overlaps with the domestic cat and it may interbreed naturally.
To date, there have been no attempts to deliberately hybridise the Rusty Spotted cat.
