Guide to Little Cats by Majnouna Guide to Little Cats by Majnouna
Rearranged the classification and added the Wildcat :D I was planning to leave it for the book, but I'm just too nice ;)

All the Little Cats (Felinae) species (no subspecies!) are shown here, save for a couple listed at the top of the document. Even though it is completely irrelevant for an illustrator whether the Bay Cat goes under Catopuma or Pardofelis, I've done my best to abide by the latest classification system. This has been revised already so as of 2011 this should all be accurate.

The full series (get the book!):
Guide to Pantherinae/Big cats
Guide to Felinae/Little cats
Guide to Housecat breeds 1
Guide to Housecat breeds 2
Guide to Coat colors and Patterns

What about spotless cheetah - www.dailymail.co.uk/news/artic…
I've never seen any confirmed reports of any odd color variation except King and Spotless cheetahs.

You're linking me to the Daily Mail? Seriously?
I'll stick to what's shown here.

Ugh, if an article on Daily Mail is going to be your excuse... I can link you the same article and photos on thousands of different sites.
But if so, then tell me about comfirmed and photographed cases of isabeline, chinchila or maltese cheetahs then.

Why should I bother? If you don't trust the research, move along.

Uh, I'm just asking for your sources cause I never heard of maltese cheetahs and you are now denying documented case...

"Blue (or grey) cheetahs have variously been described as white cheetahs with grey-blue spots (chinchilla) or pale grey cheetahs with darker grey spots (maltese mutation). Some desert region cheetahs are unusually pale; probably they are better camouflaged and therefore better hunters and more likely to breed and pass on their paler colouration."

You don't seen to bold that. I KNOW some sites list maltese and chinchila mutations. I was asking for proof and pictures. As far as I know there are no confirmed cases of maltese and chinchila cheetahs.

I don't..seen to bold that? If you mean the name itself, it was bolded on the site itself.

Photos don't always mean confirmation- photos can be PS'ed or manipulated or something. If there are sufficient respectable sites stating the information, it should be pretty solid..
