General Physical Properties
Spangled Cat was born in the 1980s to look like feral females like Ozelot and leopards. Though they were pricey in the beginning because of their rareness, the Ocicat and Bengals have shadowed the cattle since. Indeed, the long, cylindrically shaped California Spangled Cat will help you hunt like a rifle.
California Spangled Cats are full of energy, lively and, although they have a savage look, easily tameable. The California Spangled Cat is a natural sportswoman who is able to perform acrobatics. The race was founded by Paul Casey, a Los Angeles-based scientist and scriptwriter. Decided to make a feral-looking kitten, Casey was inspired by a discussion with the deceased man of science, Dr. Louis Leakey, to make a furry kitten (such as a lion or cheetah).
Working at the Olduvai excavations in Africa in 1971, Casey was appalled to discover that one of the last remaining lesbians in the area had become a poacher's casualty. It was Casey and Leakey's thought that those who own a pet animal that resembles a small-leopard would exhibit a greater tendency to keep the game.
He embarked on his scientific quest in the early 1970s with an 11th generation building plan, starting with a feminine Siamese cat (also known as the Old Style or Applehead) and a long-haired, speckled Angora of siver. Cassandra Casey then added British Shorthair, American Shorthair, spotted-brown tobacco Manx and Abyssinian to form the nuclear heyday.
Every race was implemented according to schedule and the results of the pairing were computerized. The last generations have added stray males from Malaysia and Egypt to create a savage look. In 1985 Casey got the look she wanted, which was immediately praised by a small group of feline lovers.
Finally, Casey founded the California Spangled Cat Association (CSCA), whose goal was to take action to save all vulnerable feral animals and to support the Spangled Cat. Casey presented the Spangled Cat to the general population in 1986 through an ad campain with the Neiman Marcus Christmas catalogue, where he sells it for $1,400 each.
In spite of the PR debate, the new kitten became a real asset, especially as there was a lot more request than available. These newly discovered advertisements help Casey get his nature protection messages across, but his inventory has been severely undermined. Although growers around the globe are working to make the California Spangled Cats more popular, there are only about 200 such breeds today.
It is approaching championship level from the International Cat Association (TICA) and the American Cat Association (ACA) - it has been approved for New Breed and Color level. It now has two international Grand Champions in Europe. In 1994, a Grand Champion Spangled called Lassik won Best of Show at the Paris Sommerwettbewerb.
