INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

Name: snow leopard (Uncia uncia or Panthera uncia)
Location: Hight mountains of Central Asia (Hindukush, Himalaya...)
Size: 1.3 m long body, 1,3 m long tail weight: 54 kg
Diet: Siberian ibex, argali, wild goats and wild sheep, deer, boars, langur monkeys, marmots, similar small mammals and birds
Conservation status: Endangered (there are 4000 – 6600 snow leopards)
Interesting facts: snow leopards are considered to be big cats, althought they are quite small than other big cats | snow leopards are not able to roar | other name for snow leopard is ,,irbis“ | snow leopards use their long and very fluffy tail as a scarf to hide their neck and head in cold weather. Fluffy tail is also good for balance | they have small ears to eliminate loss of body heat | snow leopards have blue or yellow eyes.

i dont think you should... this is a wild animal remember that. It probably won't know what your doing, it could hurt you. If i were you i would keep the cat, but i admit this is beautiful.

Me agreeing to trade my cat is even less likely than actually being given the chance to trade him :P It was a mere fantasy. If by some miracle I was able to care for or just interact with such an animal, bites and scratches would be a small price to pay for such a priviledge. I'd devote myself to determining whether I can gain its trust or not. On a smaller scale, I have tamed "untameable" cats before - I have my methods ;) haha

Hey,
I wanted to ask for your permission to paint this cute little fellow and use this photo as a reference :)
I read about the trouble you had with art-thieves, therefore I'd understand if you wouldn't want me to use it as a reference photo.. I would be really happy if you did, though! :)

You're an awesome photographer btw :) ;)

have a nice day!
