Moggie Cat

The non-pedigree domestic cat

Moggie is a cat or kitten that does not belong to any recognised breed. The non-pedigree domestic cat (Moggie) is the most popular house pet today. Most Moggies are shorthaired and come in every imaginable variety of coat and colour. Many are tabbies. Solid colours like black, white, ginger and blue are also common. Apart from colour and coat, Moggies differ much less from each other than pure breeds do.Most have a moderate build. Wedge-shaped heads and flattened faces are unusual in a Moggie but can appear if the recent family tree of one of the parents includes a cat with Siamese or Persian genes. Moggies are wonderful companions and love being part of a family. They can adapt to a life indoors but will make the most of any freedom offered as they enjoy hunting for small rodents and birds. Even when well fed, most Moggies will persist in bringing hunting trophies home! With proper care Moggies should live a long life. The typical Moggie, if chosen carefully, is a beautiful, intelligent, playful, low-maintenance companion with an independent streak. It will be a devoted and loving member of your household.

Advantages of a Moggie
