Chausie Cat--It's *really* wild!
The Chausie's body is large, with heavy boning, full broad chest and strong musculature, with moderately long legs. Colors include black, black smoke to shades of silver, black with silver ticking, ticked golden to reddish fawn with darker markings on ears, legs and tail. Otherwise the body is virtually free of markings. Like the Bengal, the Chausie is a selectively bred cat using "wild" stock. While the Bengal comes from the Asian Leopard Cat (Felis bengalensis), the Chausie is the result of breeding a domestic cat with a Jungle Cat (Felis chaus). The first generation breeding is 50% each of domestic and *WILD* blood. Of particular interest is the fact that all 1st generation male Chausies are sterile, as well as most males from the second generation. If you hunger for the wild look in your cat,the Chausie may be the breed for you. Picture (if you can) the grace, size, and exotic aura of a wild jungle cat, combined with the temperament of a domestic cat. Then you will have something resembling the Chausie. The ideal Chausie has been described as "fearless, but not aggressive." However, if you do not have the time to devote yourself to the care of a large, active cat, or you prefer antique china to earthenware, you might want to look elsewhere for a cat. As with any other cat, the commitment to a Chausie should be a lifetime one. Before purchasing a Chausie, check your state and local laws, as the cat is be considered a hybrid wild cat for the first three generations. (
