Yesterday I walked into a store and was surprised and pleased to find a whole bin of viverrids for sale. They had civets, binturongs, linsangs, and genets. I did not see any fossas, which was a pity, because I like fossas very much, but on the other hand there were some stray representatives of the mustelid family: otters and ferrets. I bought a spotted linsang.

Today I learn that in German the viverridæ are called Schleichkatzen. What a super name.
