Short description

Although the Toyger has a wild appearance, resembling a tiger, she has a loving and gentle character. She is uncomplicated and balanced, but tends to occupy a lot of the owner's time and attention. A conspecific is recommended. She likes children a lot, because they tend to play and cuddle with her quite a lot.

This information is indicative and adheres to the breed standard. Each animal is an individual and has a personal character, as well as its own needs. Thus, a breed is not a guarantee of certain behaviors, etc.
