Boss Humiliates Employee In Front Of The Entire Office, Immediately Loses His Loyalty

Loyal employees are crazy valuable to companies. These people are usually focused on the success of the company and are willing to go the extra mile to help it get places. They sacrifice their own time and interests to put more energy into the corporation, and it's common to see these dedicated employees carrying out such selfless acts on a daily basis. They want the company to grow and prosper beyond setbacks and competitors, and are one of the cornerstones of strong enterprises. And one boss just lost such a trooper thanks to their own narrow-minded decision.

Smallest Wild Cat In Western Hemisphere Gets Cuter As Video Unveils What It Sounds Like

Smallest Wild Cat In Western Hemisphere Gets Cuter As Video Unveils What It Sounds Like

bored panda - 2 weeks ago

While most cat lovers and owners love and find the vast variety of sounds their beloved pets make really adorable, its a mystery for most of us how wild cats actually sound. Most people have most likely heard the roar of the lion or tiger on some kind of animal documentary, while fewer have heard the tiger chuff. But what do the rest of the worlds wild cats sound like? National Geographic has recently unveiled the small, adorable sound made by the smallest wild cat in the Western Hemisphere, the Chilean güiña, in its Photo Ark project.

More info: National Geographic

This is a Chilean güiña, the smallest wild cat in the Western Hemisphere

This tiny cat, known as a Chilean güiña or Leopardus guigna, is the smallest wild cat found in the Western Hemisphere. It weighs under six pounds and is half the size of a usual house cat. It is classed as a vulnerable species by the IUCN red list. The number of these wild cats is decreasing mostly due to loss of habitat.

The one youre seeing in the photos here is named Pikumcheone of eight Chilean güiñas living at Fauna Andina. Fauna Andina is believed to be the only place in the world that has Chilean güiñas in captivity. They are extremely shy cats that are rarely seen and are thus often called mystery cat that lives in the shadows by Chilean people.

These cats are extremely shy and have therefore earned the nickname mystery cat that lives in the shadows

Despite not many having heard its voice, National Geographic has finally unveiled it to the world in its Photo Ark project

Pikumche was brought to the Fauna Andina when he was found orphaned as a kitten. He is now two and a half years old and sadly cant be released back into the wild, since he has gotten too used to being around humans. Fernando Vidal Mugica, the founder of Fauna Andina, explained the noises the tiny feline made are “likely expressions of pleasure or excitement” and his meow was because the other güiñas appeared.

You can hear the adorable sound it makes here:

However, his presence at Fauna Andina has brought some interesting knowledge that was previously scarce around these cats. While its extremely rare to hear the sound they make in the wild, Joel Sartores project Photo Ark revealed the adorable, crackling voice of Pikumche.

Someone offered an interesting explanation of the cat’s name

Others made funny comparisons about the sound and wished they could make it their ring tone
