    The first natural, free-roaming Sokoke cats were discovered in eastern Kenya near the Arabuko Sokoke Forest in the 1970s. They were brought to Europe where a breeding program started. There has been much controversy regarding this breed’s ancestry. Although found as a tropical feral, the ease with which it became domesticated suggests that its origins were from escaped domestic breeds. The main breeding program is currently in Denmark. The Sokoke is a naturally athletic, muscular cat with a tight, short, ticked classic tabby coat.
