The Cheetoh comes from the crossing of specific registered cats from the Ocicat's and specific registered cats from Bengal breeds. The Cheetoh has true jungle linage from the Asian Leopard cat and is a very muscular cat that is athletic, graceful . The Cheetoh has a stalking, low-shouldered walk that is common both in the Ocicat and the wild jungle cats, but is not typically exhibited in other domestic cats. The spotted and/or rosette spotted appearance with the large eyes and ears, enhances this distinctive wild look. The coat of the Cheetoh, sleek and shiny, is another of its distinguishing attributes. The fur is very short and thick, yet soft and velvety and is quite similar in nature to the fur of the jungle cats.
This cat is substantially different from both the Bengal and the Ocicat in that it has been consistently larger than the foundation Ocicat or Bengal parents. Weights range from 15-23lbs for the males and up to 15 lbs for the females. The Cheetoh has a very strong bond with its owner and will follow you everywhere you go. They are great with children and other pets. They will seem more dog like most of the time, playing fetch and actually bring it back for more and more fun. Our cheetoh cats are raised on a raw diet of chicken, bone, organs. You will love the cheetoh cat breed!
The Cheetoh became a recognized registered breed with the United Feline Organization in November of 2004. They are also listed under "experimental breed" with The International Cat Association (TICA) at this time.
