Adorable Rare African Golden Cat Enticed Out of Hiding with Calvin Klein Cologne (VIDEO)

FelisAurataKeulemans_5

The African golden cat (Profelis aurata) is one of the most elusive species that walks the planet. Since it is a rarity to see this cat wandering its habitat in the rainforests of Western, Eastern, and Central Africa, little is known about its behavior.

But thanks to a new study conducted by scientists from the Wildlife Conservation Society and Panthera, we can now all witness this adorable wild feline in the video below.

Scientists were able to procure this rare footage in Uganda’s Kibale National Park using a baited camera trap sprayed with Calvin Klein’s cologne Obsession for Men.

Through this study, scientists also discovered that the African wild cat is not a nocturnal species like they originally thought, but rather that it is cathemeral, or active during both the day and night.

Check out the African wild cat below!

most perfumes use the extracts of skunk glands and beaver glands those make it stick in last longer

That super-expensive Calvin Klein perfume probably consists of concentrated donkey urine.

Is this because it can smell shite? Civet shite?

Really let's tell everyone how to attract it and pretty soon it will be poached to extinction too - good move
