Clouded Leopard

My animal spirit is the Clouded Leopard. The Clouded Leopard is rarely seen, it hides in the trees and watches the citizens of the forest from above, is perfectly happy to live a solitary life, but welcomes any spirit who understands it’s reluctance to join in, to accept him for what he is.

The Clouded Leopard is not actually a leopard, but is considered to form an evolutionary link between the big cats and the small cats. A bond between races, a connecting link between those unlike him.

The most distinct difference between the clouded leopard and other felines, large or small, is that they do not purr. I've never decided whether this is sad or magnificent. Like most things involving cats, it is what it is, and the only thing dramatic is what humans make of it.
