The Australian Mist was first known as the Spotted Mist, when it was developed as a breed of cat in Australia. This breed was developed by Dr. Truda Straede in Australia commencing in 1976, hence its name.
The breed came from crossing the Burmese, Abyssinian, and miscellaneous domestic short-haired cats to create a short-haired cat with a spotted coat. The name was changed from “Spotted Mist” to “Australian Mist” in 1998, when cats with marbled coats, rather than spots, were accepted as part of the breed.
