New breed

Lykoi, the werewolf cats.

“Lykoi” is the Greek word for “wolf” and it has been adopted to name a new, fascinating cat breed. Also known as the werewolf cat, the Lykoi owes its very distinctive look to a natural genetic mutation that occurred in a few completely unrelated litters. One was from a Sphinx mother, one from a very common black domestic shorthair.

These cats have been tested for possible genetic illnesses and have been found to be healthy, so a few breeders have decided to try and make it into a proper new breed. In 2012, the Lykoi went before the The International Cat Association (TICA) and were passed to “Registration Only” status. This means that they are now a recognized breed with TICA.
