I was approached yesterday by a man with a farm similar to ours- about our feral cats. He's looking for a big-boned oci-tabby to breed to his chausie cat. I had never heard of chausies before, though after doing some research I learned a bit. Now, I've been looking for a home for a nine-month old oci-tabby so I will probably let this love-machine go to that farm. He's a fabulous cat, healthy and affectionate and he's going to be a monster. But now I'm curious about the chausies, especially temperament. The female is about a year old and 35 pounds. Ahem. This man is a true animal lover and his wife and child are likewise. He says that chausies are rare in Canada and that hybrids are popular. A fascinating idea to say the least. Do any of you have experience with chausies?
