The Australian Mist was the first breed to be developed exclusively in Australia from Burmese, Abyssinian and Domestic Shorthair ancestry. First recognised for championship status 1986 and is now recognised by all WCF affiliates. The Australian Mist is a well-balanced cat of moderate type, with no tendency to extremes in any characteristic. Facial expression is open and generous. Should feel firm with rounded contours.
