The Arabian Wildcat is also known as Gordon's Wildcat. Although this animal bears a strong resemblance to the common tabby cat it has three distinguishing characteristics. The backs of their short, pointy ears are rusty brown with a black tip. The tail has three distinct black bands around the tip and there are also black bands in the axis of the forelegs. The most noteworthy is that the pads of the feet are covered in fine black hair.
