Nature is a wonderful place for sun and fresh air. Nature is great for your mental health as it reduces stress and anger. But, did you know that nature is also a significant cuteness source?

Of example, in this category is the rusty-spotted cat, which is also the smallest wild cat on the planet, interestingly.

These small critics are predominantly nocturnal, although during daylight they come out briefly. Their daytime activity, however, is rather restricted. Rusty-spotted cats are frequently found hiding in trees and caves to prevent large predators in the area.

Rodents and birds are their main course when it comes to food, as you might have expected. If necessary, however, they also give in to other small prey such as lizards, frogs, and insects.
