The spotted linsang is a tree-dwelling, carnivorous mammal that can be found throughout much of Southeast Asia.

They have a long, slender body, short limbs, and an elongated neck and head.  Dotted patterns cover their body while stripes cover their tail, which is almost as long as the body. They also have retractile claws on the fore-paws while the hind-paws have protective lobes of skin.

When I first saw this creature, I thought of it as a mix between a cat and a weasel. To me, the face and body of the linsang resemble that of a weasel while the pattern on the body appears similar to that of a cat.
