Kitty sees you

This fantastic footage of a curious Pallas's Cat was taken last year in a zoo in England (I love the shot at :21.)

There's a lot of misinformation flitting about the Internet in relation to this video, so you should really read the great write up on it by Matthew Cobb at the Why Evolution is True blog. He tracked down the fact that the video comes from a zoo and not (as has been widely reported) from camera traps in Nepal.

There are, however, images of Pallas's Cats in Nepal that were taken by a camera trap. Here's one of a Pallas's Cat, apparently attempting to use the bathroom in peace and quiet only to be rudely interrupted by a camera flash.
