Well, the breeds that might interest lovers of untouched natural feline beauty, in our time abound. Will tell you about some of them.
Savannah’s are extremely large size and high intelligence. They look something similar to the cheetahs. In deriving this relatively new breed (the first Savannah was born in 1986) was the use of African servals and domestic cats. It is believed that the high-quality representatives of this breed obtained by crossing a Savannah with the Serval.
The nature of savannas are not really cats: they usually like to swim and walk willingly on a leash. Cats are very energetic and willful, but easily trainable.
It is believed that these cats have African roots. In the UK they were introduced in the late nineteenth century, and then conquered the world, becoming an officially recognized breed. They look like miniature Cougars, but by nature loyal owners and active, but in moderation.
Abyssinian cats love to climb to great heights and occasionally alone in a secluded corner of the apartment. Many of the representatives of this breed love water treatments.
The Egyptian Mau
The appearance of these native spotted cats has not changed significantly for more than three millennia. Working on recreating an ancient breed began about a hundred years ago on the basis of the North African cats, and in each new generation for breeding was chosen kittens with the color closest to what was depicted by Egyptian artists. Now these breeders Egyptian Mau little, and their animals are very expensive.
By nature these cats are very “talkative”, sociable and even compulsively, for hours sitting on the lap of the beloved master. They are incredibly quick, active and playful.
The breed was developed in the USA by crossing a regular domestic cat and a wild Geoffroy. Externally, the Safari is similar to the Bengals, and some experts even consider them a type of Bengal cat.
By the nature of Safari wild and love to hunt mice and birds, but at the same time gentle and friendly with the owners and their children. They are not aggressive, but strong and agile, besides, I love to climb trees, so a cat it is better to build a special complex with slides.
Almost a hundred years ago, Dr. Joseph Thompson of San Francisco received the gift of a short-tailed cat brown color with dark brown points (the end parts of the body), brought from Burma. Together with like-minded people, Thompson decided on its basis to develop a new breed, and succeed. Burmese cats have a strong personality, they love to achieve their goal, very lively and playful. By the way, the Burmese are a healthy lot, and among them found a lot of centenarians.
Spotted these cats is that originally crossed the wild Asian leopard cat and an ordinary black house cat, and then their descendants continued to knit with wild, hybrid and domestic animals. Now a new but already very popular breed was formed and officially recognized, however, to consolidate the leopard color experienced breeders still occasionally knit their Pets leopard “savages”.
The Bengals have a lot of traits inherited from the wild ancestors, but with the owners, they are typically affectionate and friendly, absolutely trusting.
These cats are the direct heirs of their ancestors. Due to the fact that the breed managed to avoid interbreeding with European domestic cats, the Siamese still retains its original Eastern form.
These cats are gregarious and do not tolerate loneliness. They are noisy and active, but if the owner is patient and persistent in training a Siamese cat is mannered and obedient.
