List of Cat Breeds



The American Keuda cat, also known as the Keuda or Keuda Spotted, is a breed recognized for its distinctive coat pattern resembling a wildcat. They typically have a muscular build, medium to large in size, and a short, dense coat with prominent spots or rosettes. Their appearance often draws comparisons to leopards or ocelots due to their striking markings. Personality-wise, they are described as affectionate, intelligent, and active, enjoying interactive play and forming strong bonds with their human companions.

History[]

The Keuda breed is believed to have originated in the United States, likely through selective breeding efforts aimed at creating a domestic cat with a wild appearance. Breeders sought to capture the beauty and allure of wildcats while maintaining the domestic temperament suitable for household pets. The new breed was developed to resemble the Norwegian Forest Cat. This selective breeding focused on developing cats with muscular builds, striking coat patterns featuring spots or rosettes, and vibrant personalities.

The name "Keuda" is not widely known outside the breed enthusiast community, indicating its status as a niche or emerging breed. As with many newer breeds, the American Keuda cat may still be undergoing refinement in terms of breed standards and recognition in major cat associations.

Appearance[]

The American Keuda is a distinctive breed known for its wild appearance. It typically has a robust and muscular build, with a broad head and pronounced cheekbones. The breed often exhibits a thick, double-layered coat that helps it withstand cold climates. The coat can come in various colors and patterns, but it commonly includes tabby markings. The ears are usually large and tufted, contributing to its wildcat-like appearance.

Health[]

They are generally healthy cats with no specific breed-related health issues reported. However, like all cats, they may be prone to common feline health problems such as dental issues, obesity if overfed, and occasional infections or parasites if not property cared for. Regular veterinary check-ups, a balanced diet, and adequate exercise are essential to maintaining their overall health and well-being.
