Grégory Breton, writing for Panthera, said that they had been on the expedition to research wild sand cats for nine days before spotting the litter sand cat, because sand cats tend to live in tough wilderness, places where researchers must endure high temperatures and the occasional sandstorm as Breton wrote in a blog.

He also added that “Finding these kittens was astonishing,”. “Three pairs of eyes gleamed back… They belonged to young sand cats, yellowish, small wild cats with broader faces and larger ears than domestic cats.”

The recorded video is believed to be the first video of its kind. Because the animal is so hard to track. With no further introduction we’ll leave you with those next beautiful pictures and video …

Breton, added that the sand cats’ natural habitat is in a harsh environment, making it difficult for researchers to observe them. The footage of the rare kittens was captures at 1:48 a.m. The adorable kittens can be seen up-close, revealing a detailed look at their cute tiny noses, beautiful wide green eyes, and enormous ears.

“Finding sand cats in their natural range is difficult,” he wrote. “They barely leave any visible pugmarks, they don’t leave behind remains of their prey, and their vocalizations are quiet. They move stealthily at dusk, night and dawn. They’re good at hiding, and their fur provides perfect camouflage when they want to vanish from observers and threats.”

The pictures have gone viral, and people are in love with this cute kitty!

“I was chatting with our local driver, Elhaj, to keep him awake … [We were] close to giving up,” Breton wrote. “Then, it happened. Three pairs of eyes gleamed back.” The Panthera research team spent an hour taking images of the litter sand cat and then spotted and radio-collared an adult female thought to be their mother. What an amazing african wild cat!

They had been searching for the cats in the Sahara for several years and this is the first time they’ve been able to find them. Among all the different kinds of cats; those are one of the most beautiful kitty sand ever!
