This is a cat.
It looks like a bear but also looks like a cat. I know theres a name in there somewhere but i just cant think of it. This naming animals thing is hard
They smell like popcorn, apparently.
>>3776831No, it is not. Not everything in Feliformia is a 'cat'. They are cat-like but not actually cats.
>>3777309just a little guy.
>>3777276They are called cats though.
>>3777017I can believe that
Why are they so fat?
Is it just me or is the notion of "caniform" and "feliform" really outdated? Since when do entire clades of animals have to be lumped in with either group, boiling them down to cat-like and dog-like?
>>3776831There are so many weird small carnivores that look like fake animals. This is one of them.
THERE IS BEAR CAT
>>3777357No. Cat is Kucing. This is binturong.
>>3777388Suborders are gay. Not hard to stick to order - family - genus.
>>3777936it's literally a bearcat
>>3777946Omg it is like LITERALLY called a bearcat in English oh mai gawd gurl , but seriously though like, is bearcat the same as cat? And is uh binturong literally the same as kucing? I literally can’t even right now.
>>3777953Not all cats are called kucing either
>>3777997Kucing is literally like, translated to cat tho lol you literally funny girlfrend kill yourself
>>3778010It's a cat.
>>3778023by your logic if that’s a cat then this is too
>>3777951Big & strong Binturong
>>3778307Hmm. Maybe it isn't a cat. Maybe it's something even better.
>>3778324now your on the right track
This is a fish.
>>3778317Can't go wrong with Binturong.
>>3778950>when your two children were taken by your ex-wife who left you for working too much and lives in the house you bought with their new dad Jamar but you still get to spend every other weekend with them
>>3779032Huh, so the rumors were real. I wonder how these things manage to crack the captcha.
>>3778595>>3778604they look cuddly
>no it's not a cat is actually a binturong->ok what's a "binturong"?>uhhhhwhat the is a "binturong"?
Look at he
>>3779338Its just called Binturong. It is the species name (Arctictis binturong) of an animal from southeast asia. In these countries, cat is translated to kucing, billee, pusa, Mæw, or chhma in these countries. None of those are binturong.
>>3776831what happens if you kiss a bin dugong
https://youtu.be/WhCh6lsBWXMThey also sound like cats
>>3779795>Binturongs don't accept partner easily. In nature they have more options but captive animals must accept what they get.
>Weighs up to 20 kilogramsBIGturong
>>3777946I bet you think koala bears are actually bears too, don't you?
So this is /an/ everyone's warning about. Where random people can judge better than scientists what's a cat and what's not
>>3779853What do the scientists say?
>>3779871Thats not a binturong
>>3777953Kys please faggot
>>3779875But its a cat. This is a cat thread.
I saw a wild one in my childhood here in Indonesia. It's a big animal and you'll be suprised at how agile they are and how fast they can disappear in the rooftops and buildings.
>>3779907Exactly, so post binturongs.
>>3779871>>3779907But badgers are caniform.
>sounds like cat>sleeps like cat>has eyes slightly like catthe evidence is piling up
>>3777017>>3777358I can believe it too. Because my piss too smells like popcorn, when I got to the toilet after I masturbate a few times in a row.
>>3779925Do you have diabetes?
>>3779917Feliform doesn't mean cat, and anything can be a cat.
>>3779937But not everything can be a binturong.
>>3779937>anything can be a catAre you a cat?
>>3779949Yes my gender is cat and my pronouns are cat/cat/catself
>>3779976But are you a binturong?
I used to be a bit obsessed with binturongsThis thread starting to flare up my interest again
>>3780088>obsessed with binturongsWhy? How?
>>3778307This is clearly a slinky cat anon
>>3780090maybe obsessed is too strong of a wordbut when i found out about them i got insta fascinatedThey looked so discheveled and unkempt but also so cute and comfy.They looked so unique to what i was used to and their bear and catlike features mixed with a tiny bit of monky made them just that more interesting.It amazed me that such an animal exists and i hadn't heard of it.I spent some time looking up pics and i used them as reaction images sometimes, they'd often enter my mind at that point in time too.I stopped at some point and hadn't really given bearcats any thought recently until this thread
Also i sorta love both their size and shape.They simultaneously look stocky and big, but they also have some finesse and elegance.Also their size sorta makes me think of a dog sized cat.They're sorta the right inbetween of not being small enough to look weak and harmless, and being big and scary.
Their name is so fun to say. Binturong. Binturong.
they look like a larger homeless fisher cat
Someone break down for me what is this thing?
>>3781317It's a bear but it isn'tIt's a cat but it isn'tIt's a monke but it isn'tIt's everything and nothing
>>3781317If you think it's a raccoon, bint, you're wrong.
>>3781317It's a binturong>what's a binturong?Who knows!
>>3781672>This will make my binturonger
>>3776831My cats usually smell like nachos for some reason, or tortilla chips in general.Note I don't have any of those at home.
It's been too long since Binturong.
Do two binturongs make a binturight?
>>3782236That's almost a trinturong.
>>3779925you might have prostate cancer, my man
>>3779927>>3782322Thanks for your concern, but I'm healthy as far as regular health checkups can tell.
>>3779976>not meowselfFucking imposter kys
Fuck pandas. Binturong is besturong asian animal.
Sing-along with Binturong.
>>3782216>A black mass with four binturong headsScary
What do Binturongs dream about?
>>3779925Yeah but yours is gross
>>3779783Popcorn and her kernels.
i really want one as a pet. too bad they are super super stinky.
>>3784555>they can hang from their tailsOkay, this is cool as.
>>3776831can i domesticate them?
>>3785220what would you use them for?
>>3779898Why? Hes right. This is exactly what people sound like when they use "literally" that way, at least for Americans famiar with that specific type of cali accent oddly specific to dumb mall rat cunts anyway...
>>3785266But it literally is a bearcat though. That's the name of the animal
>>3779917Shut up hater.Its a cat.Stupud animal specialists and their labels just trying to keep a cat down is that it?
>>3776831>>3780062Hello everyone. but as a cat binturong myself, I must say it seems you are msiguided in your understanding the cat and binturong. So I'd like to take this opportunity to clear up some confusion.You see, the binturong, the cat and the feliform are three cotemporal and consubstantial beings and while the three are distinct, they are one essence. Th essence of Bearcat Binturung, AKA The Sloth Bear Squirrel Looking Thing.
>>3785293That's an interesting Binturong theory my Binturonger friend. Anyone else have any Binturong ideas?
>>3779925Yeah but it isn't cute or charming when you do it. Bearcat popcorn piss is.
>>3778604"This one is mine">>3779919But it looks nice. Unlike cats>>3780233Is this cat>>3780508I'm worried for the man>>3782216open borders pls
>>3785710Wow, those are some big beans
8th of May is World Binturong Day 2021, mark the date.
>>3786411What do we do on Binturong Day?
>>3777017If popcorn smelled like Fritos and piss, sure.
>>3777017No, popcorn smells like binturongs. Binturongs were there first.
I like the binturongs
>>3776831That's a binturong
>>3787765That's right, it's a binturong
Today is the day, happy World Binturong Day!
>>3779913Are they dangerous?
They are so fucking ugly, but somehow cute at the same time. I hate them.
>>3789676Any animal can be dangerous if you piss it off, but they're vegetarian and generally fairly chill
>>3790629> they're vegetarianThey are omnivorous.
>>3787632their piss literally has the same compounds that develop when movie theaters toss butter on heated kernels.
>>3790603Intense Red Panda energy.
>>3785368True, binturong looks nice, rather than exquisite and majestic like cat.
>>3777388It has its purpose and it is phylogenetically correct, unless we discover something new. The problem is not the science itself but the Reddit-tier midwits that misinterpreted it (deliberately or not) and make statements like "Heh, did you know that hyenas are actually CATS? Crazy, right?"
>>3790629These are Carnivorans. There are no vegetarian carnivorans aside from the giant panda.
What are they called again?
Ugh, why do they look like that?
Cat = felidae Felidae =\= feliformiaHyenas and mongooses are also feliformes, they are not cats. Cats are anything in the family felidae. Feliformia is a sub order.
>>3792006Dont care Binturong = Binturong
>>3789789>>3792983They don't seem to be very good at eating fruit
>>3793004Well, they're basically cats.
>>3777017The feet of doggers smell like pop corn as well. I guess carnivorans are more closely related to pop corn than other mammals.
>>3778604Looks like a witchy familiar.
>>3785710By the looks on their faces; they are discussing philosophy.
>>3780508That thing is huge. Scary.
>>3795330Woow ott and bint living together?! Where is this?
>>3795367Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden, Hungaryhttp://zoorope.hu/en-mixed-exhibit-viverridae/
>>3795408Took itself to zoological gardens snack shop.
>>3795367Maybe it's possible on Planet Zoo, too.
>>3795375Is there any animal you can't combine with small clawed otters?
>>3795619Do bints always use humans as taxis?
>>3795653Small clawed otters should be a standard decoration in every zoo enclosure
>>3795408disregard women acquire snacks
>>3795880>Do bints always use humans as taxis?There are 4 examples of this going on recorded in this thread so far already. So I think it is yes.
Two Resin Binturongs
What noises do these things make? Do they communicate acoustically?
>>3795408I like ya cut G
They seem pretty docile, are they like that?
>>3776831this is a barecat
>>3797510I really like these things
