Australian Mist

Also known as “Spotted Mist”.

The Australian Mist is a relatively new breed of cat and an ideal family pet thanks to its gentle, friendly nature. The Australian Mist loves to be handled and will happily sit on your lap.

They are quite happy living indoors and are a great choice if you live near the bush and are concerned about the impact cats can have on native wildlife and birds.

They adapt to training and will even go for walks on a lead.

This medium sized, short haired cat with a spotted coat is the result of a breeding programme that crossed the Abyssinian, Burmese and other short-haired cats.
