Catch a Tiger...From Your Breeder?

Posted by Picasa

Ever decide that living with a house cat didn't pose enough problems and desire a large cat, say like a tiger? Great news! Now you can have the challenge of a house cat and an apex predator rolled into one*! All joking aside (and how often does that happen here?) what a cool cat. The "Toyger" as this new breed is dubbed is house cat with tiger stripes. Best of all, should you choose to purchase one of these beauties part of your payment goes to tiger conservation. Get a conversation piece, best new buddy and warm fuzzy all at the same time.

For more info check out the National Geographic article where I first learned of this super-cool new cat breed:

*Toygers contain no tiger genes but are bred from Bengal cats!
