More details about the Toyger

Toyger: Origins and history

The Toyger is a creation of the American Judy Sugden, daughter of the famous breeder Jean Sugden Mill who was behind the Bengal. The goal of this creation was to obtain a breed of cat that looks like a miniature tiger from a morphological point of view, hence the name from the contraction of "toy" and "tiger". Judy Sugden set out on rigorous selective breeding, without crossing wild cats to avoid the inconveniences associated with the particular character and needs of hybrid cats. Household mackerel tabby cats with uniform stripes and exotic appearance were then sought after. In 1993, the breed was accepted by TICA and was awarded championship status in 2007.

Toyger: Purchase price

On average, the price of a Toyger kitten is between £600 and £1500, the price often varies according to the lineage, the breeder, the age or even the sex. For the monthly budget, it will cost on average £35 / month to provide for their needs, by offering a quality diet and ensuring their good health.
