The Chausie, also known as Selva Curl, Stone Cougar, Montaña Cougar, is a hybrid of the domestic cat (Felis silvestris catus) and Jungle Cat (Felis jungle).

Permitted fur patterns reflect those of the jungle cat: striped dotted with patches of black color tips or silver occasional. The chausie inherited a tendency to a somewhat shorter than the jungle queue, but never very short or no tail.
