Introducing the Cheetoh

The CHEETOH is the newest blend of pedigree cat, utilizing very specific bloodlines of the Bengal and the Ocicat breeds to create a special recognized pedigree breed called a Cheetoh.  The Cheetoh was first researched and developed by Carol Drymon of Wind Haven Exotics in 2001 and the first litters of cubs arrived in 2003.  Subsequently other qualified breeders throughout the United States were invited to participate in the Cheetoh breeding program.  Greenstone Cheetohs is the only Cheetoh Cats International Authorised Breeder here in New Zealand, and we are proud to be involved with breeding this beautiful cat so that Kiwi’s can experience the joy of owning one of these amazing creatures. The CHEETOH is a recognised breed and registered with United Feline Organisation in the USA and Catz Inc here in New Zealand.
Whilst incorporating distinctive characteristics of both the Ocicat and Bengal, the CHEETOH Cat has its own attributes and look.  These include a super affectionate nature and real love for their human companions, great deal of intelligence with the ability to learn quickly and a keen instinct to hunt.  Their amazing coat pattern consists of lots of spots and a few stripes for good measure, replicating the look of their wild counterparts.  The head has a slightly more chiseled look to it and the ears are more prominent than that of the Bengal.  They walk with a lower front stance and higher at the back, (the John Wayne walk).  They grow to be a generous sized cat with males being solid muscle mass with thick necks and solid bodies weighing around the 7/8kg mark fully grown.  The females tend to be just slightly smaller and finer in the body but still of a good size when compared to the average moggy.   This cat has an enormous amount of energy, especially the cubs, who expend it in keeping themselves and their human companion entertained, they are suited for outdoor environments or homes with large spaces and lots to do.  The CHEETOH Cat is also extremely intelligent, very curious and quite dog-like in their ways.  They interact well with other felines and dogs too – a busy and noisy family is no problem. CHEETOH’S are a sweet natured lap cat that look wild but have a dependable docile nature and can be trusted around anyone, especially children.  
The CHEETOH comes in a variety of colours and markings, Brown Spotted being the most sortafter, however Snow Spotted, Snow Marbled, Silver Spotted, Brown Marbled and occasionally Cinnamon Spotted are also born.  Combined with their friendly purrsonality all the traits they have make them hard to resist as an exotic shorthaired cat to share your home with.  Our Cheetoh Cubs are raised in a loving environment with lots of attention and available to approved homes at 12 weeks of age – desexed, fully vaccinated, flea & worm treated, litter trained, with a 30 Day Pet Insurance policy and Royal Canin food starter pack.
