The ideal coloring for this breed is an orange/tan background with dark stripes similar to the Tiger. The coat should be striped with no spotting.

They are suitable for most households and get along well with both children and other pets. Toygers are intelligent and easy to train. They love to play with water much like their wild cousins, the Tiger.

Origin The breed was founded by Judy Sugden of EEYAAS Cattery in the United States. The new Toyger breed is a cross between a Bengal and a domestic shorthair [tabby] cat. The aim of the breed is to produce a cat that closely resembles a small tiger, with the even temperament of a domestic cat. The Toyger is a designer breed, is currently still being developed and is accepted by TICA in the Traditional category.
