California Spangled



This cat gives the initial impression of being a miniature leopard. It has a long, lean, somewhat muscular body and a low slung walk, along with spots. The most desired shape of spots on the cats is round, yet somewhat blockish. Triangular, oval, or square spots are acceptable also. The Spangle's coat may be any of the following colors: bronze, gold, blue, brown, charcoal, red, black, silver, or white. They have conspicuous cheekbones and light, large whisker pads. Spangles may look wild, but are purely domestic and adore playing and interacting with their people.

They have a soothing disposition that is in complete contrast to their wild, fearful look. Having an affectionate nature, they enjoy being cuddled and fondled by their owners. Because of their athletic, acrobatic nature they enjoy jumping to great heights. In fact, these curious cats would have a great time seated on your shoulder or the fridge top from they can keep a close watch on whatever is happening around. These sociable, children-friendly cats also mingle well with strangers. They desire their masters to be a part of all the fun activities they do and are not comfortable when left alone for a long time. Having an affinity towards hunting, they will enjoy stalking or pouncing upon their toys, or anything that moves.

Grooming Requirements

Low Maintenance: Occasional grooming is advised to keep its coat in good shape. Though we see cats regularly lick their coats to clean themselves, some regular grooming can be good; it removes hair, prevents matting, and stimulates circulation. Frequency should be every few weeks.



Low Vocalization: It is known to be quiet. Therefore, owners shouldn't be concerned of excessive and undesirable crying or meowing, especially at night.
