ASHEBORO — Sand cats may be small but don’t let their petite size fool you.

They’re also a rare sight  to see, which is why the North Carolina Zoo is excited to announce the birth of a sand cat on Monday, Aug. 10. The kitten, small enough to fit into a teacup, was born to mother Najma, three, and father Cosmo, five. This is the first kitten for the pair.
