Toyger means Toy – tiger, this new breed of cat has been developed to resemble the tigers of the wild. The call of the wild right in your living room: that’s the Toyger with its dramatic striped and glittered pelt soft as silk. The Toyger is being bred to resemble the tigers of the wild but in a package that fits easily into the modern urban lifestyle with the same nature as the domestic cat. These miniature tigers are friendly outgoing cats that delight in being with their human companions without a single drop of real tiger blood. A young breed, the Toyger is in development as breeders work to replicate the pattern and colors of the tiger with ever-increasing accuracy.
Tigers are an endangered species in the wild and many of the Toyger breeders are also very concerned about conserving the beautiful wild species that cats are created to resemble, donating part of the income of the sale of their kitties to animal welfare association of the tiger in the wild. Hometigers will donate a % of the price of each kitten to a wellfare association of the tiger in the nature.
