Scientific literature describes leopard cats as "house cat size with somewhat longer legs", a weight range up to 15 lbs., and a long muscular body structure. The background color of the coat is highly variable depending on where the cat is from, and ranges from bright reddish to silver gray, golden, or tawny brown. The underparts are spotted on a white background, and the tail is ringed toward the tip. There are usually four longitudinal bands running from the forehead or inner eye corners to behind the neck that break into short bands and elongated spots over the shoulders, although sometimes one stripe runs the length of the body. The spots are rosetted in some of the cats, solid in others. The head is relatively small with a narrow muzzle and the ears are described in the literature as moderately long and narrow with rounded tips. There is a white spot on the back of the ear typical of spotted cat species. The eyes are large and amber to grey in color. Two narrow black cheek stripes run from the comers of the eye, enclosing a white area on the cheek.
Leopard cats are excellent swimmers.
