The Toyger was founded by Judy Sugden of “EEYAAS Cattery” in the USA. The Toyger is the result of a cross between a striped DSH (Domestic Short Hair) and a STB (Standard Bengal Tabby) This resulted in a striped Cat which after many years of hard work resembles a ‘Toy Tiger’.

Toyger’s are of medium size and have pelt and glitter like the Bengal. Today’s Toyger’s have very good temperaments and are quiet robust and healthy Cats.

The ideal colouring is an orange/tan background with dark stripes like that of a Tiger. The stripes are actually long rosettes and should not be uniform like a mackerel pattern but more like long random individual stripes. The coat must be striped with no spotting. The ears small and rounded, good solid bone structure and overall balance.

The Toyger is an ongoing venture with each generation improving on the last to obtain the objective of a beautiful domestic cat with the look of the majestic wild Tiger.
