The Cheetoh has a super affectionate nature and real love for their human companions; they are intelligent with the ability to learn quickly.
They have a gentle and mild-mannered but energetic temperament and therefore do great in homes with children. Their amazing coat pattern consists of lots of spots and a few stripes for good measure, replicating the look of their wild counterparts.
