I would like to know if it is possible to acquire a sand cat... So if you have any information to get one - Please let me know :icon-wink:

I'm grateful for every small information.

They are available in Europe from time to time, but I've heard the stock is very inbred. That doesn't mean that you wouldn't get a healthy one though. The UK seems to have them available if you keep a look out. :)

Welcome to the forum. Sand cats are definitely something I'm interested in.

Try RFUK.com. The sand cats are hard to come by, but they'll pop up in petstores in the UK every now and again. If you join up with RFUK, chances are you'll be more likely to find out when/if any are available. I know at one point someone in the Czech Republic (or somewhere like that) was breeding them. A member here imported one from them, but it passed away due to a genetic issue.

Also try to locate brokers. They will be your friends and will help you find what you want, as long as you are a committed, serious buyer.

Not necessarily look in the ads, but ask about where the exotic mammal owners are. They might mention one off hand if you know you're looking.
