CAT SNAKES, OR, CIVETS/GENETS: A THREAD
Civets and genets are like if cats, weasels, and snakes combined their mutual powers to create a Captain Planet of murdery goodness. HERE ARE SOME OF MY FAVES
1. BANDED CIVET

A cat, a raccoon, and a cobra walk into a bar. Well. The cobra doesn't walk so much as slithers but. Anyway. A cat, a raccoon and a cobra walk/slither into a bar and MERGE INTO THE ULTIMATE ADORABLE DEATH-DEALER EVER

2. AFRICAN CIVET

Imagine a raccoon decided it looked better in leopard print and then got too close to a black hole thus experience spaghettification. That's what the African civet is.

3. BROWN PALM CIVET

So take a kitten and then combine it with a wingless bat and then give it the tail of a squirrel. I know that sounds WEIRD but I promise it looks adorable

4. COMMON PALM CIVET

It's like....an opossum and a hyena decided they'd have super cute babies together and then added a ferret for coloration purposes

HAS POINTY SNOOT
HAS MANY SPOT
HAS RING NECKLACE
HAS STRIPE TAIL
HAS ROUND EARS
HAS SMOL LEGS

8. OWSTON'S CIVET

This thing is both terrifying and adorable like it's a little too uncanny to be completely adorable and it's a little too cute to be completely terrifying so it's terridorable. Adoriffying. Both.

9. SULAWESI PALM CIVET

Like a sloth/fox/cat/badger. It's also super polite-looking like you can imagine it saying "EXCUSE ME FREN JUST GONNA DO SOME MURDER HOPE U DO NOT MIND"

10. SMALL INDIAN CIVET

LOOK AT THIS ROUNDBOI
LONG ROUNDBOI

SAUSAGEBOI?

11. HOSE'S CIVET

It's only been caught on camera ONCE it's so rare so it is officially the alien of civets. The mothnman of civets. THE LOCH NESS MONSTER OF CIVETS. The cryptid civet.

12. COMMON GENET

DID YOU KNOW that these lovely beings were brought to Europe by the Moors as semi-domesticated pets/hunters and now a wild population in Spain exists!! Which means I MAY SEE ONE IN THE WILD SOMEDAY

13. FOSSA

Yes! The apex predator of Madagascar is in the same family as the civets/genets. It also walks on the soles of its feet rather than its toes (aka plantigrade) which is a good piece of trivia for impressing a date or a future boss. Try it!

14. BINTURONG

1. it's one of only two carnivores with a prehensile tail
2. it forms its own genus within the family Viverridae
3. IT HAS THE WORLD'S BEST WHISKERS TRUST ME I KNOW THESE THINGS

15. LARGE SPOTTED GENET

Hey ever wonder what a combination of a serval, a weasel, a squirrel, and your wealthy thrice-divorced great-aunt's wardrobe might look like? Welp here u go:
