Cat Breed of the Day: Toyger

Toyger_1

From WikipediaThe toyger is a breed of domestic cat, the result of breeding domestic shorthaired tabbies (beginning in the 1980s) to make them resemble a “toy tiger”, as its striped coat is reminiscent of the tiger’s. The breed’s creator, Judy Sugden, has stated that the breed was developed in order to inspire people to care about the conservation of tigers in the wild.

We’ve actually never come across an owner of a Toyger but if you happen to be one we’d love for you to share any photos you might have.   And if you’ve got any funny stories or videos to share please send those in as well.  In the meantime please enjoy our gallery of Toyger  cats and kittens.  Be sure to click “next” beneath each photo to view them all!
