As a two time owner of a toyger cat, I can say they can certainly be very different in their overall activities and attitude. My current toyger is a very anxious, nervous and needy cat. I think he may have separation anxiety because he was abandoned mby his mother as a kitten.
My earlier experiences with the female toyger I had before Azrael are like night and day. She was very laid back with new people, didn't need constant attention from me and was very independent. Toygers have a very unique coat and both of mine were self sufficient at grooming themselves.
They are highly energetic cats, and if you don't want a cat that likes to play and get a not hyper sometimes then a toyger might not be the best match. They will play with anything they find amusing and you might need to make sure any Breakables are put away out of kitty's reach. They will find something to entertain themselves and are usually happy with other cats in the home because they have a playmate.
Toygers are fun cats and are easy to love.
