Australian Mist: Most adorable!


The Australian Mist is one of the most lovable feline breeds. What makes them so lovable is their ability to get along well with all–toddlers, young and old.

Best of the gene pool

The Australian Mist proudly wears the label ‘Made in Australia’. They have been developed by Dr Truda Straede for more than twenty years. They have a large gene pool, derived from over 30 foundation cats. Their ancestry can be traced back to half Burmese, and a quarter each of Abyssinian and domestic tabby cats. They inherited the beautiful muscular body and wonderful people friendly and outgoing personality from the Burmese. However, the Abyssinian contributed to the misty appearance of the coat pattern, besides high intelligence, gracefulness and energetic activity. While, the domestic tabby cat has given them the spotted tabby pattern and the good healthy crossbreed vigour and vitality.
Natural charmers
Australian Mists are moderate-sized cats who are medium-boned and have rounded head with large expressive eyes which are green in colour. The coat is short, but resilient while the tail is plumply furred. The pattern of their coat has delicate spots or intricate marbled swirls against a misty ground, with legs and tail ringed and barred, and the face lined. The nose, chin and whisker pads are broad giving the face a generous expression. They come in various colour forms like Brown (seal brown markings on silvery fawn; Blue (bluish-grey markings on silvery cream); Chocolate (chocolate markings on creamy-fawn); Lilac (dove grey markings on pinkish-grey); Gold (old gold markings on rich cream) and Peach (salmon pink markings onpinkish-cream).

Loved by all

Australian Mist has a fantastic temperament – full of love and fun. Intelligent but relaxed, they are very fond of people and do well with all kinds of families with toddlers, teenage children, and elderly. They love to crawl in the lap of their human family, so if you wish to have a lap cat, here’s one for you. They are tolerant to any kind of handling and are very disinclined to scratch. If you have other pets at home, they will go along with them wonderfully as well.
