Australian Mists are medium-sized shorthaired cats, with a round head and large, expressive eyes. The coat has a delicate "misty" background. The legs and tail are ringed or barred, and the face and neck also have delicate lines of color. Australian Mist cats come in six colors: brown, blue, chocolate, lilac, gold and peach.
As a new breed, the majority of Australian Mist catteries are in Australia, however the cats have also been introduced to America and several other countries.
