The prickly puss is a small wildcat that lives in desert regions. Its green and brown fur is covered with cactus-like spines that serve as a defense against larger predators and also serve as camouflage while hunting desert rodents, snakes, and birds.

Though cute, the prickly puss is not a good pet due to its spines and grumpy temper.
