The Australian Mist was developed in Australia starting in the 1980s.This breed wa “created by  Dr. Truda Straede by combining Burmese (1/2), Abyssinian (1/4) and Australian Domestic Shorthair cats (1/4). Mixing the loving personality of the Burmese with the touch of lively intelligence of the Abyssinians and the vigour of the Domestic tabbies has given  a cat which reflects the best of its mixed ancestry as well as its own unique charms. The original name for this breed, Spotted Mist, was changed to Australian Mist in 1998 when the marbled (classic tabby) pattern was added to the acceptable patterns for the breed. This Australian cat breed has been created under the very strict regulations of the NSW Cat Fanciers' Association Inc., and is now recognized by governing councils in Australia.The number of Australian Mist cats and Mist breeders continues to increase and soon the Australian Mist will most likely achieve official registration in other countries.




Australian Mists are shorthaired, medium-sized cats. Their round heads and large, beautiful green eyes give them their distinct expression. The legs and tail are ringed or barred, and the face and neck also have delicate lines of color. Australian Mist cats come in six colors : brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, gold and peach. They are both patterns (Spotted pattern and marbled) pattern).




They are fun-loving, but very easygoing and relaxed. They make excellent pets for children of all ages, as they are tolerant of handling, and disinclined to scratch. Their propensity to crawl into the nearest lap with or without invitation, and to constantly hang around to see what people are up to makes them excellent companions for home workers and invalids.




The short coat is easy to care for.
