Description

The Chausie cat is classified in TICA as a hybrid source breed using the Jungle Cat as its nondomestic ancestor. It is a large (up to 30 pounds!), lanky, graceful cat with large ears and a cougarish, wild look, though not a wild temperament.

The well-bred Chausie personality is sweet-natured, though extremely active, intelligent, and curious; they need plenty of playtime and toys to keep their active minds and paws busy. If not, they may find other things to entertain themselves. They are well known for learning to open doors, cupboards, or anywhere else they take a mind to explore.

Chausie kittens are bred in black, brown ticked tabby, and black grizzled tabby colors. The black grizzled tabby is a new exciting pattern that is unique to the Chausie breed and derives from its Jungle Cat ancestors.

They should be long and lean, not cobby or thick-bodied, with boning sufficient to carry the cat without making them seem chunky.

WARNING: As a hybrid breed, Chausies are illegal to own in some states or municipalities in the United States. This is mostly due to badly-worded laws banning wild animal-domestic animal hybrids, mostly meant to prevent dangerous hybrid crosses that might result in vicious animals or invasive species. Registry-recognized hybrids and good breeding practices result in neither, but laws can take time to change. Please check with this website to determine if your state is affected: http://www.hybridlaw.com
