Country of origin

Breed standards (external links)

The California Spangled Cat is a breed of cat. They were bred to resemble spotted wildcats, like the endangered species ocelot and leopard. They are a rare breed, and usually expensive, priced between $800 to $2500. They were originally bred in the 1980s.

Inspired by the poaching death of a leopard, the anthropologist Louis Leakey, motivated Paul Casey to breed a domestic cat resembling a small leopard, and that this would emphasize how important it is to preserve the leopard.

California Spangled Cats are a crossbreed of many strains of cat. Despite their wild appearance, they are completely domestic.
