My Pet African Wildcat

I have a female African wildcat that was born in Saudi Arabia. My brother was stationed there and captured her parents, as kittens, in the desert outside Dhahran and AlKhobar. She was a kitten when she came here to the US. She is quite tame and is a great house cat.
I bred her to a Siamese since there were no other african wildcats to breed her to. She had 3 of the most wonderful kittens. I would love to find another African wildcat to breed her to.
I think this breed makes quite a great pet despite the name... they are not wild if raised in a loving home. And they are strikingly beautiful.
