This breed is born in California, thanks to Paul Casey, a Californian scriptwriter, in 1971: when he came back from South Africa, he intended to create a cat similar, in appearance, to african’s leopards, but sociable, a “house-cat”. It took many years to reach this object; he crossed several domestic breeds (Siamese, Abyssinians, Manx...) and wild cats. The breed was recognized in 1986; in Europe, this breed is rare .
