Geoffrey's Cat, named after the 19th century naturalist, Geoffrey St Hilaire, is found throughout southern South America, east of the Andes. Weighing up to 6 pounds, this is a small nocturnal cat with a well-proportioned body and head. Its coat varies from silver grey to ochre and is covered all over with equally-placed small dark brown or black spots. On the shoulders and flanks of some individuals the spots may merge to form rosettes or bars. The Geoffroy's cat is an extremely mild-tempered cat, and has been bred with some domestic cats in an effort to produce a domesticated but wild-looking hybrid cat.
