Breed Profile

Australian Mist

Australian Mist
This wonderful cat is "true blue" and because it is home grown it proudly wears the "made in Australia" label. This charming Aussie cat originated from a Burmese background, with Abyssinian and domestic shorthair breeds - and from this combination has come the confidence and companionship of cats that we enjoy today.

Possessing the loving personality of the Burmese, the joy of the Abyssinian and the resilience of the moggie, the Australian Mist reflects the best of its mixed ancestry combined with its own unique charm and the resilience of the Aussie.

Its hallmark spotted jacket comes in a variety of colours from warm brown to blue, chocolate to lilac and gold to peach - with the misty background colours highlighting its delicate, but distinctive spots.

This little Aussie go-getter is blessed with personality plus and has a great sense of fun that is very contagious, and because of this the Spotted Mist thrives on human companionship and it is also very tolerant of even the youngest of children - a big plus when most cats do live in a family environment.

These friendly cats also enjoy playing games and being part of the hustle and bustle of the home further cementing their reliability as a warm and friendly pet for all ages.

"Spotties", as they are affectionately known, are extremely alert and attentive and make super athletes possessed with limitless energy and a cheeky, inquisitive nature.

These cats know exactly what they want out of life and how to go about getting it so be prepared to be led where you may not necessarily want to go
