Toygers Australia is a small in-home cattery located in the Derwent Valley, 30 minutes from Hobart, Tasmania. Our breeding program has been put on hold whilst we develop our property for our amazing cattery. We do not expect this to be completed before 2018, and as such our breeding program has been put on hold.
Toygers Australia is the first Toyger breeding program in Queensland, and the second Toyger breeding program in Australia. We are very proud to be the first Australian Toyger program to breed the amazing White Toyger, designed to replicate the white Tiger. Toygers Australia is at this stage focussing on early generation Toygers to create a strong genetic base for our breeding program.
Our homebred Toyger cats and their kittens are registered through The International Cat Association (TICA) using the pedigree prefix 'Aussiemade". We are members of the Toyger Cat Society.
About the Toyger Cat
Judy Sugden created the Toyger breed in the 1980's. Thanks to Judy and many other overseas Toyger breeders, the Toyger cat gained full championship status through TICA is 2007 and is taking the world by storm. There are currently about 40 Toyger breeding programs worldwide and are all working towards the main goal of creating the ultimate miniature Tiger.
The Toyger cat has an amazing short and plush coat that is full of shimmering glitter with a brown, orange or silver/white background colour and striking braided black rosetted stripes.Unlike a striped tabby cat, the Toyger cat has broken or branched bold vertical stripes.
Toyger cats are generally no larger than a medium sized domestic cat and despite being bred to resemble the Tiger cat are not at all related to Tigers.
The Toyger cat has a very placid, friendly and outgoing personality, and gets along well with other household pets. As the Toyger cat is intelligent, they are easily leash trained, taught to play fetch amongst other tricks on command. Their placid and laid back personality makes a great addition to any household wanting an amazing looking household pet.
