The Chausie is a hybrid cat developed by breeding Jungle cats and a number of domestic cats. It is a domestic breed, one of the most beautiful breeds, with a lot of characteristics taken from their ancestors, the African jungle cat, such as their wild look.
Chausies are medium to large in size, taller than most of breeds and very long legs. Their body is muscular, athletic with an open chest. Their ears are broad and their eyes flat on top and half oval below, usually gold or yellow color. Chausies are short haired cats usually in three colors; black, black grizzled tabby and black or brown ticked tabby.
Chausies are well known for their speed and their jump abilities. They are affectionate, loyal cats, with a “dog like” personality. They are extremely intelligent cats, always active when kittens. Chausies need attention especially if they live indoors. They want to have the attention of people and they do not like staying alone. They can get along well with other cats; in fact they would love to have a permanent company. They get along well with dogs as well, as soon as they grow with them since kittens. Regarding children, Chausies are not recommended for very young children due to their naughty, quite wild, personality. It is better to have them with older children who are taught to treat Chausies with care and respect. One way or another, the introduction must take place under smooth, controlled circumstances.
It is better to keep a Chausie cat indoor, because there is always danger if they go out to never return back. They have from nature the wild, hunting instincts of their ancestors and sometimes they can cause damages at home. You better keep some fragile or valuable things out of its reach.
In general they are healthy but their nutrition needs special attention and breeders recommend that you feed them with very high quality commercial cat foods, because they might get a intestinal inflammation.They need little brushing, nail trimming, ear cleaning or teeth brushing if they allow you to do. Thus, it is better if you train them since kittens to some basic hygiene treatment. Otherwise you must trust their care to a veterinarian, as well as for their annual vaccination.
