It seems there is a waiting list, so, send those donations right away to…. "Kitty’s broke and needs a new ‘baby’," Fund.
Just think of the warm feeling of satisfaction and pride you’ll feel when I’m able to welcome another kitty into my home. I’ll gladly take a Cerval or Asian Leopard Cat, if you happen to have one of those too! lol
Here’s the info… BIG HUGS, Steph
The price, a mere, a pittance, a paltry sum of… $22 Thousand Dollars! Pffft pocket change!
The Ashera, bred by Los Angeles-based Lifestyle Pets, "is a new ultra-exotic breed of domestic cat that already has wealthy animal devotees paying to get on the waiting list," the company press release claims.
The pricey pet is said to have been produced by cross-breeding an African Cerval and an Asian Leopard Cat with a domestic feline. While Lifestyle Pets admits this type hybrid breeding has been done before, "the Ashera is unique in that genetic monitoring is used to standardize breeding and ensure that the defining features and size of the [animal] remain exceptionally consistent." And like most other super-luxury items, the company says it will sell only 100 Asheras per year worldwide, with only 50 being sold to U.S. customers.
And after dropping 22 large, potential buyers should also be prepared to budget for a big supply of Fancy Feast, as the company says the Ashera can grow up to weigh 30 pounds.
Well, for all that money, at least now you can get the yappy Chihuahua next door to finally shut up.
