California Spangled: Origins and history

In the 1970s, an American scientist, Paul Casey, returned from a trip to Tanzania with the idea of creating a cat breed resembling the little spotted foxes he had seen on his travels. He decided that if he created a house cat with a leopard’s coat but an affectionate temperament, then fewer people would want to wear fur. There are many breeds that make up the family tree of the resulting cat, such as Siamese, Abyssinian, British Shorthair and even some Asian and Egyptian stray cats. It took eleven generations for Casey to reach the model he’d envisaged. For some time, the California Spangled was a Hollywood muse, before being dethroned by the Bengal. Today, the breed has practically disappeared and there are only a few individuals left.

California Spangled: Purchase price

We do not enough data to set an average price for the California Spangled. However, the price will vary depending on lineage, breeding, age or even the sex. The reason for this high price is the breed’s extreme rarity. For your monthly budget you should allow on average £35 per month to provide for their needs, offering them a high quality diet and ensuring to keep them in good health.
