Designer Cat Breeds

Saturday, September 17, 2011

Doesn’t the word “designer” make a cat breed sound exotic and special? In reality, this term means high breed.  A designer cat breed is a product of selected breeding that is intended to produce kittens with a specific trait.  An example would be that of the Toyger. This cat was bred to look like a domestic tiger.  It has Bengals, Egyptians, Coons, and American Short hairs in its lineage.   The concept of designer cat breeds is relatively new.  If you’re thinking about buying one of these designer breeds, do your homework to first and know their characteristics. Designer cats can make great pets. Try to find out why the specific breeds were chosen. Keep in mind, what truly makes a cat special is not it’s breed but how well it fits in with your family and lifestyle. Remember, your pets count!
