Chausie Cat Physical Appearance
The Chausie cat is a hybrid pet with a very interesting and exotic heritage.
Classified as “exotic” by The International Cat Association, the Chausie is thought to be the result of cross-breeding the wild jungle cat (Felis chaus) with the domestic cat (Felis catus).
And the Chausie’s is beautiful, eye-catching looks hark back to their wild cat ancestry.
They have long, lithe, and powerful bodies, giving them the look of a mini mountain lion.
Their coats can be solid black, black grizzled tabby, and brown tabby, and some Chausies have pronounced tabby stripes on the upper part of their legs, so you could even find that you have a tiger in your family!
These kitties have a rather haughty appearance with high cheekbones and slanting eyes that vary in color from yellow to lime, and occasionally aqua.
On the cuteness front, Chausie cats have it in abundance!
Their large, tall, tufty ears and a somewhat shortened tail certainly give them the “aw” factor!

Chausie cats of both sexes have curious, friendly personalities, and they love to spend time in the company of their human owners.
Despite their wild ancestry, most Chausie cats are chilled-out and relaxed.
As well as relaxing in the sun, they will happily settle on your lap for a cuddle and a gentle grooming.
They also get on well with other cats and with dogs too, provided they are properly and carefully socialized.
