Toyger Merits Progress
The Toyger is a medium to large cat breed of foreign type with a long, low slung, muscular body and athletic appearance. It is characterised by its striking, plush, striped, glittered coat and superbly, amiable temperament. The Toyger has been bred to resemble a miniature tiger but with the temperament of a domestic pet. No new wildcat outcross has been used in the development of the Toyger, which is still ongoing.
Toygers have been bred in the USA for over 30 years. The breed was first recognised by the GCCF in 2015 and achieved preliminary status in the Foreign Breed Group?in June 2016. We are now enjoying showing our Toygers for Merit Certificates at GCCF shows and also introducing them to the public at events such as the National Pet Show.
Looking for a Toyger?
Buying a Toyger as a family pet is a big commitment that should not be rushed into. Toygers are dog-like and become very attached to their owners, often craving more attention than most cats.
Take your time to think about the undertaking you are considering and whether a Toyger is right for your current and future circumstances. Do not allow yourself to be swept along on a tide of emotion, only to realise later that you made a mistake.
A new Toyger cat or kitten can be a wonderful addition to the family and that is just what it should be, so please take the time to decide whether it is for you.
