Breeders: Australian Mist

The Australian Mist was  Made in Australia – the first locally bred pedigree cat.   Burmese, Abyssinian and Australian Domestic shorthair cats were combined to create them.  They mix the  loving personality of the Burmese with the lively intelligence of the Abyssinians and the genetic vigour of Domestic tabbies, reflecting the best of its ancestry while having its own character.   They are recognised Australia-wide, and increasingly overseas, as a Championship quality pedigreed cat.

This carefully designed breed has a FANTASTIC temperament and is full of love and fun. They are highly intelligent but relaxed and very fond of people. They are one of the only cat breeds that could go to any household type for example for families with young or teenage children, they are exceptional with the elderly they are tolerant of any kind of handling and are very disinclined to scratch. They are very easily trained to walk on a lead and harness, play fetch, ride in the car or go just about anywhere you go they love to be a part of the human family. They are very adaptable and have a very common sense almost human intelligence and tend to blend into any situation they are put into. They interact wonderfully with other animals in the household.

As kittens they are lively, funny and continually acting the clown but do slow down somewhat on maturity. Their propensity to crawl into the nearest lap with or without invitation and to constantly hang around to see what people are up to makes them an excellent companion for the home mum with young children, the home worker, or for the elderly or infirm who spend most of their time in the home.

The Australian Mist people-centredness contributes to their willingness to remain indoors between dusk and dawn, or to be a wholly indoor pet. This is an essential characteristic for Australia, where some local councils have placed curfews on cats in order to protect the native wildlife.
