Lykoi cats

Post by Stardust on 14th June 2016, 11:37

Reading a South African newsletter this morning, and saw a paragraph regarding a Lykoi cat found roaming in public gardens in the Cape. Never heard of this race, also called werewolf cat, so looked it up:

Poor little thing.  It wont have much of a life with all the worlds scientists and biologists probing and examinations following it through its life.  If it was a family of these mutants that were found it would be different, at least they would have some kind of companionship and interaction with their own kind but this little animal is destined for a life of research with people only interested in the new discovery.

I think he'll be well looked after and loved, Whiskers. The article from MNN indicates:
"Although there's a lot of interest in the rare, unusual kitten, rescuers have found a home for him 'with one of the greatest feline experts and animal lovers,' according to the group."

There are other Lykoi cats (in the USA), but only 35 in the world according to the article.

He's a sweet looking kitten, isn't he? happyheart

I wouldn't say he's pretty but I hope he has a happy life.
