Scottish wildcats are in danger because of crossbreeding with domestic cats
There are total only around 400 Scottish wildcats remaining.
Scientists have warned the species is under threat because of cross-breeding with domestic and feral cats. Without immediately actions, they can be wiped out in a decade.

We still need a good number of the wildcats in order to have enough genetic diversity for restoring their population. I can see by implant the fertilized eggs of wildcats into domestic cats, you can produce more of the wildcats. Probably it is easier if produce them in test tubes. However, I think if the wildcats are born to a domestic cat mother, their natural behavior might change. They will monkey see monkey do by using their mother as example.
