Giant cat seized at Schiphol

A giant cat produced by cross-breeding an African Serval cat with an Asian Leopard cat and a domestic feline is being held at Schiphol airport while customs officials check out its antecedents.

The exclusive Ashera cat, bred by Lifestyle Pets in the US and sold for $22,000, can grow to the size of a large dog.
The Telegraaf reports that the cat, named Shin Chan, has been bought by a couple from Eindhoven.
