The Chausie is a tall, statuesque cat, upright in stance, medium to large in size, and retains a strong resemblance to its ancestor the Jungle Cat.
They have long legs, large mobile tufted ears and often inherit a 3/4 length tail from the wild Jungle Cat. The Chausie is good natured, loyal and intelligent.
Chuasies are an accepted breed in The International Cat Association (TICA). Cats that are 3 generations from their African jungle cat heritage (F3’s) are allowed in the show hall. To view the TICA standard click here.
