These little (big) guys are the oldest living relative of modern day cats. The Pallasā€™s Cat is the oldest living species of a clade of felids that includes the modern genus Felis. This feline, along with the extinct Martelliā€™s Cat, was probably one of the first two modern cats to evolve from Pseudaelurus approximately 12 million years ago.
