This would be a great gift for the cat lover but when you consider that it can cost you between $22,000 and $28,000 a cat it is probabably only suited for those whose pockets are lined with cash. The other thing is that it is too late for this Christmas as there is a one year waiting list.
This hybrid or designer cat is a mix between an African serval, an Asian leopard and a domesticated cat. and can weigh up to forty pounds when it is fully grown. What makes it exotic is that it looks like a small leopard but behaves like your normal house cat, that is until it gets the taste of human flesh and then it will turn into a small version of it’s flesh eating African cousin! Nah, I’m just pulling your leg, or am I?
The Californian bio-tech company that breeds this hybrid claims the cat is more like a dog, as you can walk it on a leash, than it is a cat although it does possess the many play like qualities that cats are known to have.
There are other kinds of designer cats such as the Toyger which is a cross between a Bengal tiger and a domestic cat, and there is also the Chausie, a mix of Jungle and domestic cats, but whatever your choice it will probably cost you an arm and a leg. Personally I reckon I would like one crossed with a lion, I have always wanted a cat with a mane.
