This cat breed has wild origin having been developed from mixed breeding between wild jungle cats and domesticated cats. Over the years, the wild nature has taken a back seat to the more domesticated and gentle predisposition that makes them popular companion pets.
In fact, they are not only very friendly but also super loyal to people that they get to bond with early on in their lives.
Chausies are relatively rare today as most of them are developed through selective breeding and not the more natural and common course of mixed breeding. This is due to the rarity of the wild jungle cat in the modern urban society in most parts of the world.
