Australian Mist


Description / History

The Australian Mist (formerly the Spotted Mist) was developed in Australia. 

There is nothing extreme about Australian Mist, they are of moderate size, medium boned, rounded of head, with large eyes and ears. The coat is short, but resilient, the tail is plumply furred. The colors are warm brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, gold and peach; the pattern is of delicate spots or intricate marbled swirls against a misty ground, with legs and tail ringed and barred, and the face lined. Eyes are large and expressive in a range of greens. The nose, chin and whisker pads are broad giving the face a generous expression. 

The name of this breed was formerly "Spotted Mist", but the name was changed to reflect its regional heritage.


But the most outstanding aspect of the Australian Mist is its temperament.  The kittens are lively but not boisterous. They are an extremely affectionate breed and very people orientated. They prefer to spend their time with their owners and are always involved in family activities. The even temperament makes them excellent pets for anyone even very young children.


9-11 lbs.


Large green eyes

The Australian Mist / Spotted Mist are only accepted in the Australian Cat Federation, CCCA, and the NSW Cat Fanciers' Association ( formerly the RASCC).
