Yes, there really is a werewolf cat! The Lykoi as it is properly called is a startling sight. Light patches of skin around the eyes,nose and mouth give them a strange dog/cat aspect. Their skinny body and yellow eyes glinting in their scruffy faces reinforce the werewolf look. In fact, their odd appearance owes nothing to human breeder's intervention, it is a natural mutation breed. Their story is even more interesting when you learn that cats with werewolf features have been found in both domestic and feral cats for quite some time. Many were found as strays or abandoned cats in shelters, some about to be euthanised just because they looked 'different' The famly who launched their breeding programme were actually giving these cats a second chance.It just goes to show that a breed can be established with health and personalityand at the ssme time support rescues.
