The Sokoke is a breed of cat originally called the Khadzonzos. These cats were discovered on the Kenyan coast and taken to Denmark to breed in the late 1970s. The name of the breed changed to reflect the name of the forest in which the breed was discovered in 1993 when they were officially recognized.
The Sokoke has a blotched, tabby, coarse, short-haired coat in shades of brown. They have little to no undercoat. The Sokoke has amber to light green eyes. The breed has long thin bodies with long legs; the back legs are longer than the front, similar to an ocelot. This breed is very active and enjoys climbing and “talking” to their owners.
