HISTORY

In 1977 Dr. Truda Straede of Nintu Cattery began creating the Traditional Australian Mist over a period of more than twenty years.  Strict regulations, sound selection and defined husbandry added to a broad genetic base. Thirty foundation cats came from a back ground of half Burmese, one quarter Abyssinian and one quarter Domestic Shorthair.  A gentle nature dilution of colors, size and structure came from the Burmese.  Ticking of the coat, two colors and a touch of lively interest came from the Abyssinian.  The Domestic provided spots, vigor, good teeth, kidneys, mothering capabilities and stabilizing litters sizes to around four kittens.    

PERSONALITY

Dedicated to no one person or other pet in the household, they make well adjusted family members, enjoying an indoor only life.  A mild temperament, being tolerant of handling and not inclined to scratch, leads to pleasurable ownership and compatibility with children. They are inclined toward relaxed, lap sitting

HEALTH

A broad genetic base of three different cat breeds has created a vigorous, healthy breed.  No known defects or health challenging deformities are connected with the breed.
