    Well, whatever he is, he sure is beautiful. He does look havana brown-ish. Chausies are a new breed, started from wild cat hybrids. The wild cat used is a small Egyptian, pan-asian wild cat called a Jungle Cat, latin name, felis chaus (get it? chaus-ie?). Anyway, the very young have spots, which fade as the become adults and leg bars that are darker on the inside of the leg. They look somewhat (some people say a lot) like tricked out Abyssinians. They are very, very active, smart and have a ticked coat (several bands of color on each hair). So, if Bobby has a number of those qualities, it's possible he has some in him. However, there are very few Chausies and very, very, very few breeders who would allow their intact Chausie out of their sight long enough for accidents to happen. They do, but it's rare. There are a number of Chausies on Catster (including me), just do a breed search. Anyway, Bobby's gorgeous.
