Antique Taxidermy Scottish Wild Cat


Very rare Scottish Wild Cat (Felis Silvestris Grampia) , "Wyld Cattis"

on a good naturalistic base



Scottish Wildcats are the only surviving member of the cat family native to Britain. As a shy, solitary and mostly noctornal creature, these animals are rarly seen by people, even those living in wildcat country.


Almost hunted to extinction by the end of the 19th century, they were probably saved by the fact that many gamekeepers were called up to serve in Flanders during ww1. This gave the cats a little respite to recover. Today it is estimated that less than 400 pure wildcats live in Scotland. (It is possible there may be up to 3500 hybred creatures as a result of cross breeding with domesticated felines over the years).

Return policy details
Please note most items I sell are antique or vintage and as such have been around for many years, they will often show signs of use & wear. Whilst I will describe condition to the best of my ability, everyone has a different idea of condition. Please study the photographs and ask any questions prior to bidding. Most items start with no reserve, the final bid price is your decision so please make sure you are happy with the item shown in the pictures. (I do not profess to be an expert in every field and cannot be accountable for buyers expectations). Please remember, just as in a real auction when the hammer falls you have entered into a legally binding contract to complete the purchase. Depending on the value/nature of the item I may recommend that you take additional protection for postage with a signed for / tracked service. I will charge any packaging materials (foam, beads, bubblewrap, cartons etc) at cost – again I strive to ensure your purchased item reaches you in a safe, undamaged condition. Larger items may be couriered or uplifted from our premises in Central Scotland by prior agreement. If in the unlikely event that you feel the item is grossly misrepresented, return it to me in good condition and I will issue a full refund minus postage costs. LASTLY, I HOPE YOU WILL BE DELIGHTED WITH YOUR PURCHASE AND LOOK FORWARD TO DOING BUSINESS WITH YOU AGAIN – REMEMBER, I WILL HAPPILY COMBINE POSTAGE IF YOU WIN MORE THAN ONE ITEM-JUST LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU'VE FINISHED BIDDING AND I’LL SEND YOU A COMBINED INVOICE.
