Origins

The development of the Toyger began in the 1980s, with breeders aiming to create a domestic cat with the aesthetic of a wild tiger. By combining the Bengal breed with striped domestic shorthair cats, the resulting appearance was a mid-sized feline with bold striping and a remarkable resemblance to its wild counterpart.

Key Characteristics Of Toygers

Toygers have exceptional intelligence, making them adept at problem-solving and even opening doors.

The Toyger’s personality is a mix of the Bengal’s energy and the domestic shorthair’s calm demeanour.

How can I take good care of my Toyger?

Nutrition

A balanced diet is crucial. Look for high-quality commercial cat foods that list protein (preferably meat) as the primary ingredient. Fresh water should always be accessible.

Grooming

Weekly brushing to remove loose hairs and distribute natural oils is sufficient.

Exercise

Incorporate toys and interactive sessions to keep your Toyger stimulated. Wand toys, laser pointers, and puzzle toys can be excellent choices.

Training

Thanks to their intelligence, Toygers can be trained relatively easily. Using positive reinforcement techniques can be very effective, especially with treats and praise.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.

Most Asked Toyger Questions

Many Toygers, much like the Bengal breed, are fascinated by water and might even play in it. However, individual preferences vary.

While Toygers have the adaptability and independence common to many feline breeds, their affectionate nature means they do best with regular interaction.

Finding a reputable Toyger breeder is the key to getting a healthy, well-behaved Toyger kitten. Toyger kittens for sale from ethical breeders have a much better chance of growing into calm, gentle adult cats. The average cost of a Toyger for sale is usually around AUD $1000 to $2000.
