Personality and Temperament

Large, exotic, and active, Cheetoh cats are fun-loving individuals that crave attention from their families. They tend to get on well with everyone – other pets included! These incredible cats have a wild appearance, even though they are eight generations removed from the wildcats that make up the breed’s foundation. Don’t let that fool you though: They are dedicated lap cats, happy to curl up on the couch and enjoy some well-deserved time in front of the TV! Cheetoh cats can weigh more than 20 pounds. They are among the largest cat breeds ever developed, and as they’re relatively new, they are also among the rarest.


Since Cheetoh cats are several generations removed from their wild ancestors, they thrive on high quality cat food and have no special dietary requirements.
These cats are not prone to shedding as their hair is extremely short. Light brushing can bring out the hair’s sheen. As Cheetoh cats are large and active, your furniture will thank you for keeping their toenails trimmed. You might also wish to brush your cat’s teeth on a regular basis.
Cheetoh cats love to jump, climb, run, and explore. They thrive on interactive play and they appreciate access to a tall cat tower, wall shelves, and window seats.
As hybrid cats, Cheetohs tend to enjoy robust good health. Cataracts, eye disease, sensitivity to anesthetics, and heart disease may be inherited in some cases.
