I am a living fossil Click me! I have sea-star feet I eat rodents

I have a scent gland on my chest I am solitary My ancestors lived 70 million years ago I am a living fossil
I am low on the food chain In the fall I prepare for winter I loose the white on my ears as I get older
I am completely non-destructive I make almost no noise My hearing is acute I love to cuddle before I go out I am very resistant to diseases I often travel several miles in one night
I will eat anything I accept my litter mates
