Stealing your explanation. Next time my hubby suggests I might be floofing up a little, I'm going tho tell him it's insulation. Even if I am only 26 feet above sea level.

Good to be prepared though. One day you might go 28 feet above sea level.

This is a pallas cat. Contrary to what many think, he's not actually all that fat, he's really just exceptionally fluffy. They need that fur to survive frigid temperatures common to their habitat (IIRC, Russia, northern Asia, mountains and steppe). Source: Was obsessed with cats in my youth but I'm confident Google will back me up.

TL;DR: They look chonk but they ain't really chonk. They floff.

Edit: A gold! Chonk you! Also, for all you nonbelievers, google image search. See the floffitude for yourselves! You will not find a single non-floff pallas cat. They also got real bad resting bitch face... dang.

Edit: Even more dang!

level 2

I looked up pics and was wondering why their facial expressions looked so... weird. Then I realized THEY HAVE ROUND PUPILS WTF

level 3

The only cat with round pupils, thought because they are ground hunters and ignore birds, supposedly.

level 4

Only cat under 100lb w/round pupils, actually.

level 5

No, bobcats and lynxs are well under 100 pounds and have round pupils.

The shape of a feline pupil depends on the kind of hunter they are. Ambush hunters that hunt both day and night, like domestic cats, have slitted pupils that allow their eyes to adjust to light changes easily. Preditors that stalk and run down their prey like lions, jaguars, leopards, pumas, bobcats, etc., have round pupils that give a wider view.

level 4

Lions and tigers and lots of big cats.

level 3

Omg that’s what it is! I was thinking that they looked oddly human-like in the face....

level 2

Other cool pallas's cat facts I think I know: They have round pupils! Also, they aren't really built for classic cat-style stalking. Instead, they sort of just lay in wait for some unsuspecting prey to saunter by. Then they do this surprise fatty-pounce/death-roll thing. As for their "homes", They like legit caves but they'll also blithely knock over rocks until a sort of crevice is made. That, or they forcibly evict marmots from their burrows.

And they're sooooo photogenic !!!

Hey everyone - how big do you think the cat in the picture is? Like, a bigger than a house cat for sure, right? Probably just below knee height? Perhaps you've seen this authentic photograph.

WRONG

They are fucking tiny.

Its body is 46 to 65 cm (18 to 26 in) long and its tail 21 to 31 cm (8.3 to 12.2 in) . It weighs 2.5 to 4.5 kg (5.5 to 9.9 lb).

Here's a person holding one.

I think one the main reason I find them so dumb-looking (they're real cute, but they look kinda dumb) is because they have round pupils and it subconciously gives the sense that it's a person in a cat suit rather than an actual cat.

The snow should give you a clue to what is going on here. That is literally all fur. They are the epitome of floof.

From Wiki:

The combination of its stocky posture and long, dense fur makes it appear stout and plush.

In reality they're quite small and light.

level 4

Well I'm too dumb to consider that, thanks for the info!

level 3

This is just how they look. It's all fluff. Don't believe me? Google image search it. You will not find a single non-chonk-looking pallas cat.

Pallas cats are the best! I like to describe them as "angry little floof ewoks" to people who don't know them.

Was in Russia a few years ago (roughing it in the Altai Republic) and we had some motion sensor cameras set up near our campsite for studying the wildlife. One of these fluffy bath bomb doods came to investigate us in the night at one point so I guess the wildlife was studying us too. We never saw him, but the cameras got some rather derpy pictures.
