New breed of cat retails for $22,000
From the we're-not-making-this-up department comes "news" that a company called Lifestyle Pets has introduced the Ashera, a new breed of cat that retails for $22,000. Sunroof extra. Billed as the world's "largest, rarest and most exotic domestic cat," the Ashera is the size of a small dog -- and we're not talking Paris Hilton-style pooch. Top weight is about 30 pounds. Developed by crossing two exotic feline bloodlines -- the African serval and the Asian leopard cat -- with a regular old domestic cat, the Ashera is said to have leopardlike spots and contrasting tiger stripes and a smile that will scare the mailman. We kid. The news release says Asheras are intelligent, great with kids and OK with being walked on a leash. If this is the pet of your dreams, visit
and start stocking up on fresh meat.

But be warned: The San Diego Union-Tribune reports the Ashera may be nothing more than a virtual hairball. The founder of a company linked to the designer pet did prison time in Great Britain after pleading guilty to charges of false accounting in connection with a business involving flights in hot-air balloons. A call to the publicist for Lifestyle Pets was not immediately returned.

in AIME, we don't appreciate crossing of wild breeds with domestic cats.
Getting a new breed with stabilized characteristics takes a very long time and is very different from the initial anouncements. And stabilizing the character is also very long.

For the Bengal, it took around 20 years and I think that it's not yet finished. and the results are very inequal.

Usually, it' a question of money and proudness.
With all the crosses that have been experimented, there must be a reason why only bengal seems successful...
