Have you seen a "Toyger" yet?

I haven't until last weekend when I had the opportunity to "shoot" two of these nice cats. Toygers look like mini(toy) tigers, hence the name.



Talk about a substantial cat!

What a beautiful cat! Can you give some details it (purebred, mix, etc.)? Also, just how substantial is it?

Toygers are a breed "still in development" and as such there no such thing as a purebreed (AFAIK), only cats that are closer or better according to the goal or not.

How substantial? Pretty! I'd guess the bigger(older) one of the two was close to 18lbs, but that was PURE muscle, PURE energy absolutely solid. I have a couple more shots of these great cats if you are interested, I would just have to work on them(Since I shoot everything in raw)

Jari,

You are welcome to download the shots I make publicly availble from my gallery over at the cat site. (http://www.catfancy.org) You may have to chack back a couple times, since I have not yet uploaded all the pics I will make available.

I'd like to see more pictures. I showed this one to Kari and she was amazed at how beautiful its coat is. Thanks!
