Pinecats have a timid and frazzled attitude and are easily spooked if there is too much movement surrounding them. To this day, researchers have only had a few chances to study a Pinecat, but it has been recorded that they have a similar size to a young kitten, and often spotted in combinations of yellow and light green stripes or spots, easily blending in with the fields they tend to roam in.

Their petite, lightweight size makes it easy for them to run around quickly in order to not be caught during their hunt and their colors make it so they are camouflaged in a field of green. The largest size Pinecat that has been been spotted was a seemingly pregnant Pinecat, estimated to be around 9-11 inches long.

Pinecats are often spotted on the outskirts of pineapple fields located in Brazil, preparing to find the perfect pineapple for their dinner that night. They tend to travel in small packs of only 3 to 5 Pinecats at a time, possibly for the ease of hunting and not bringing attention. They have yet to be spotted anywhere else, leading researchers to believe that they strictly live around pineapple fields as an ease to their diet, hence their name.

No one has yet to see a pack of Pinecats in action of feeding, but if it is quiet enough during the nighttime, you can hear little mews indicating that they have found a perfect pineapple. Researchers have yet to attempt to lure Pinecats in with a pineapple filed trapped, in fear of scaring them off from their main source of nutrients.
