Welcome to Jungle
Breeders of Chausies
Crossing an African
Golden Jungle Cat with a domestic cat produces this hybrid. Females can
weigh as much as 15 pounds; males up to 25 pounds. Chausies wear a
golden-ticked coat with "ghost spotting". Handsome stripes on all four
legs and the tail accent the white chin and golden "necklace" around their
long necks. The ears are large with black ear tippings (reminiscent of a
Bobcat). Mummies of these cats were found in ancient Egyptian tombs
suggesting these cats have been human companions for a very long time.
These elegant hybrids also come in a solid black with the same sphynx like
appearance of their golden cousin. Because of their size and affordable
price, they are sometimes referred to as the "poor man's Savannah".
