The Binturong is part bear, part cat, and all squee! Nah, just kidding, they're not bears nor cats, but are in fact closely related to civets.

Like many animals the bearcat uses scent glands to leave scent markings as a way to communicate with each other. What is special about the bearcat though, is its scent has often been compared to the smell of warm, buttered popcorn. Squeelicious or disqueesting?
