From Kenya, where they lived for many years in the forest of Sokoke district, they are slender and well muscled, and have big ears. Their hair is short, shiny but not silky, and the dress is mottled or spotted. A weekly brushing will suffice. Bright, good climber and a good swimmer, it will blossom in a garden, but apartment living suits him too, if they have a cat tree! It will be a gentle and loving companion, and get along well with other cats and dogs.
