Arabian Sand Cat also known as the Sand Dune Cats are the only desert dwellers of the wild cat family. They are prolific diggers, and their claws are not very sharp for lack of places to sharpen them in the desert. It doesn't matter how small OR cute they are, they do NOT make good pets....they are wild animals. You cannot take a wild animal and domesticate it.
