A cat on the top of Everest. The discovery of a team of scientists is destined to open a new direction of study and research. The so-called Pallas cats, also known by the name Manul, had always somehow managed not to be seen or identified during the many mountaineering expeditions of recent years. According to the same researchers, in the highest part of the Himalayan slope there are two cats that have chosen the south side of the roof of the world as their natural habitat. An extremely valuable discovery for scholars and environmentalists from around the world, curious and amusing for everyone else.
Why is my cat following me into the bathroom?

Pallas’ cat appears, at least at first glance, to be a normal house cat, but with some significant differences. The legs are very short and the fur is much thicker and softer than that of a four-legged house. The resemblance to a particularly chubby cuddly toy is striking. In reality, however, they are smaller and even lighter than it might seem. Such a voluminous fur coat is necessary to protect them from a cold, which in the winter season can reach -36 degrees with peaks of -60 degrees. Thanks to their resistant claws and the great strength of their paws, they can even scale rugged and steep rock faces and crevices such as that of Everest. Despite their appearance, they remain wild animals and therefore extremely aggressive.

Wide muzzle and big ears, someone brought them closer to the cartoon characters that we all love so much because they remind us of the best childhood. “It is a phenomenal discovery, proof that this rare and extraordinary species can live on the top of the earth, in temperatures impossible for humans and in an extremely hostile environment,” said Dr. Tracie Seimon of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Zoological Health Program of Research will help us determine exactly how many Pallas’ cats live on Everest. From there we will understand how and what to do to protect them so they can continue living their best life in one place.”
