Chausie basic information
Chausies are known for their wonderful speed and nearly six foot vertical leap. They are large cats, standing anywhere from 14 to 18 inches at the shoulders. They are tall, lean and very long cats, with their hind legs rising slightly higher than the front. The Chausie should be almost exactly twice as long as it is tall. Chausies are also considered twice as tall as a domestic cat and can be 2 to 3 times as heavy. Male Chausies can weigh twenty pounds or more with the female somewhat smaller.
