Cats Here are 10 different types of cats


The bobcat resembles other species of the Lynx genus, but is on average the smallest of the four. Its coat is variable, though generally tan to grayish-brown, with black streaks on the body and dark bars on the forelegs and tail. Its spotted patterning acts as camouflage.


The cheetah’s coarse, smooth fur is a pale tawny base covered with simple black spots of irregular shape and occurrence. Black stripes of fur known as “tear lines” frame the cheetah’s face from the outer corner of its eyes down its nose to its mouth. These dark stripes keep the sun out of the cheetah’s eyes when it is hunting. The simplicity of a cheetah’s spots distinguishes it from the leopard. Leopards have more complex coloration, with black and brown clusters of spots called rosettes.

The jaguar is the largest and most powerful wild cat in the Western Hemisphere. The jaguar is larger then the leopard. The jaguar's coat has different colors, but they are usually yellow-brownish with black spots
