Soon, other cats in the locality were observed with a similar “ring” in the queue. After the genetic consultation, the final decision was made to develop these cats as a unique formal race. The original ringed tail male is crossed with a foreign female. Since then, several litters are born with the features that show the “Ring-tailed cat”.
