The Asian golden cat diet consists of the following prey items:
  • birds
  • lizards
  • large rodents
  • hares
  • mammals to the size of small deer
  • new born water buffalo calves
  • domestic poultry
  • sheep
  • goats
  • muntjac
  • snake
  • squirrel

This cat can kill large prey. The prey obviously depends on the area. Its range extends from Sumatra in the south to central and northern China in the north of its range.
