Jungle Cat hybrids are a cross between an African Jungle Cat and a domestic cat.
The 1st generation is referred to as “F1”. When you breed a pure African Jungle Cat with a domestic cat, the kittens are 50% Jungle Cat (wild). When you breed one of those kittens with another domestic cat, then you get 2nd generation kittens, “F2s”, which are 25% Jungle Cat. “F3″s are 12.5% Jungle Cat and “F4″s are 6.25%. All males are sterile until the F4 or F5 generation, and therefore cannot be sold as breeders.
The Jungle Curl cat is a curled eared wild cat hybrid. A cross between the African Jungle cat or Jungle cat Hybrid such as Chausie or Jungle bob and a curled eared domestic cat, either the American Curl, Highland lynx or a Canadian cat called the Hemingway Curl plus a mix of other genes from outcrosses to domestic shorthair cats such as the Serengeti, Bengal cats, Savannah, and Jungle cat hybrids. Jungle Curls can either have Poly or non poly feet. Me as a breeder prefer the non poly because they more resemble the jungle cat but a lot of breeders prefer the poly. We do raise both types. With Jungle cats becoming rare and rarer in the US it is getting harder to find F1 curls.
Depending on their breeding Jungle Curls can weigh anywhere from 8lbs to 25lbs at healthy weight.
The only main problem is that Jungle Cats are very rare in the US and some that are are very closely related. Our male Maverick comes from Imported lines and luckily is not related to most other Jungle Cats in the US. So finding a F1 from a Jungle Cat is really rare.
Jungle Curls are more playful and exploratory than many domestic cats. They retain the intelligence and appearance of their wild ancestors, but the affection of a domestic cat. They are active and need much attention. Keep toys, activities, and people around to accompany your Jungle Curl.
These cats have a lot of personality and you can almost call it dog like. They will play fetch and even guard the house when your gone. Guarding isn’t always the case but there are some known to be pretty good at letting strangers know this is their house and their family.
As with all animals socialization is a key factor when looking for a jungle curl. Make sure the breeder socializes the kittens a lot. We are normally there from day one depending on the mother of the kittens. If a more protective mother by the time the kittens eyes start to open we are handling them.
When you take your kitten home make sure to give them a little time to get comfortable with their new home but also sit and talk with them. Most our kittens are in your lap when you pick them up from us but occasionally there is a shyer one and normally warms up within a day or two.
When feeding most hybrid cats protein is one of the most important factors. Also making sure they get a good variety as well.
We generally feed a Purina one chicken and salmon or Purina natural vitamins and minerals chicken dry food. Which we keep available to them all the time. Then once in the morning and once in the evening they get raw meat. Generally consists of chicken, gizzards, ground turkey, turkey, liver, beef, ground beef (lean), tuna steaks, and salmon.
Not everyone likes to feed raw meat so after some research from owners who have our kittens they have found some really good high protein brands of wet food a couple of the brands are Instinct, Vitalife, Halo, and RAW.
We had our very first Jungle Curl born April 1st.
