Kellas Cat

( Melanistic hybrid)


The Kellas cat is named after the village of Kellas, Morayshire, Scotland, UK. In the early to mid 1980s there was much speculation being placed as to whether a new species or an 'emerging' new species of cat had been discovered in mainland Scotland. After close study based on the evidence from eight collected specimens, it was concluded by Dr Andrew Kitchener of the Royal Scottish Museum, in Edinburgh that seven of the cats showed traits common to both Scottish wildcats and domestic cats. These cats were described as introgressive hybrids, representing animals with varying degrees of Scottish wildcat and domestic cat ancestry.
