Bengal Cat + Tabby Cat = Toyger How many of us as children remember watching TV and thinking, boy I'd love a tiger kitten. The problem is it would grow up to weigh 700 lbs. and eat people. That makes it difficult to keep in the house or apartment. The Toyger breeders have solved those problems; looks like a tiger; yet small like your current cat Fluffy and doesn't eat people.
The Toyger was founded by Judy Sugden of EEYAAS Cattery in the USA. The Toyger is the result of a cross between a striped Domestic Short Hair and a Standard Bengal Tabby. This resulted in a striped Cat which after many years of hard work resembles a 'mini Tiger'. It's a designer breed and currently still being developed. Breeder's are striving to give this stunning breed the true look of a mini tiger over the coming years.
