Rare Breed Sokoke ?

by Beverly Vanderwerf
(Australia )

Hello There

l have a five month old kitten that was given to me as a surprise gift on my 50th birthday.
He looks so much like on of the rare breeds called a Sokoke.
I have looked up the TICA and the FIFa standards and still cannot determine if he is or he isn't as he meets a lot of the criteria however he did not come with pedigree papers or registration.

He is very intelligent, fast and has bonded to me like glue. he likes to carry things around in his mouth and will shake them like a dog as if he is trying to kill something.

Is anyone able to assist with identification?

My Sokoke look cat "Chica"..same look, same characteristics
by: Darren

Good Day. I picked up a kitten from classifieds. She has the same coat as yours. I searched all over net for images of same. Sokoke forest cat I am thinking. May not be pure bred but she acts the same. She doesn't like to sit in laps or be held to long. She follows me all over house almost tripping me while doing this. She loves climbing he kitty condo tower and carries her toys in mouth as if its a kill she acquired. She is always doing something rarely lays down. Enjoy your cat. I know I will with mine.

amercian short hair
by: Anonymous

I think your cat is a little American short hair. They have very strong dark markings on their bodies. The Sokoko tends to be thinner and more like an egyptian cat.
