General: The Tamri are a medium sized breed of cat, originating from the beautiful African country of Morocco. Morocco is the African country which offers the greatest variety of climate, thanks to being bordered by two seas and having the Atlantis mountain range at the South which limits the expansion of the desert.
This varied environment has led to a breed of cat with a wide variation of characteristics, such as a large range of coat colours, coat types, tails etc.
Although varied, these cats are all descended from the famous groups of feral cats roaming the Moroccan desert, which now exist throughout the country.
Their distinctive tabby pattern allows them to blend into the long shadows cast by the sun, and breaks up their silhouette whilst they take cover under the scrub bushes typical of their native habitat.
They are extremely well adapted to their environment, with many desert cats having folded ears which allow them to protect their delicate ears during sand storms, whilst cats living in the mountain ranges display darker coloured coats than their desert counterparts, allowing them to blend in with their surroundings. Those who live in the snowy mountain reaches are even known to come in pure white.
The Tamri was first bred in the Moroccan city its name is derived from, and is rumoured to be happiest in its native climate, although many are now bred overseas, as their independent yet affectionate, streetwise nature makes them the perfect pet.
The Tamri is a sister breed of the Tibetan.
