The Kanaani cat is a relatively new cat breed. It originated in the 1990s in Israel through a hybridization of animals of the local Falcon Cat (Felis silvestris lybica) with domestic cats. By crossbreeding cat breeds such as Oriental Shorthair, Abyssinian and Bengal cats, the Kanaani cat breed was created, which has been recognized since 2000. The founder is the German-Israeli artist Doris Pollatschek.
