Werewolf Cat

In the spirit of Silly Tuesday…
Have you ever petted a werewolf? A relatively new breed of “wolf cats” will interest animal lovers for their werewolf-like appearance. They are Lykoi cats, and they possess a natural mutation that gives them the appearance of a scruffy-looking little wolf.

We met this little werewolf cat at a cat show in Waco Texas. In spite of the unusual appearance and scary name, he was a very sweet little cat.

I will say it once again, that aminus3 is a wonderful thing. Without this, I might never have seen this critter. Its amiability increased multi-fold in the face when you look at the pattern formed by the heart. It may not be the beast.

I agree with Steve ... a curious looking cat by day, a WEREWOLF at night ... ;-)
