HIGHLANDER CAT ~~~ Development of the breed began in 2004 and an early name for it was the Highland Lynx. No wild cat genes were used to develop the breed, rather the name refers to the desire to create a domestic cat with a powerful "Big Cat" look. In 2005, the name Highlander was decided on for this unique breed of cat. Pictured is a Highland Lynx. Her name is Sass and she belongs to SherBobs Exotic Cats in NC.
