Spotted Mist


The Australian Mist, initially known as the Spotted Mist is an attractive short-haired feline breed developed by crossing the Abyssinian, Burmese, Moggy and other unknown domestic cats with short hairs. These moderate-sized cats have a round head, large, expressive green-colored eyes, big ears, short coat and plumpy-furred tail.

Australian Mists are tolerant of handling and are not inclined to scratch. As kittens they are lively, but are less so when mature. Australian Mists can be excellent indoor cats, which also protects native wildlife. Some Australian Mists can be trained to go for walks on a lead. Neutered/spayed cats and kittens of this breed fit in easily with other cats and dogs, a trait further enhanced through selective breeding.
