Lykoi Cats -- Why?!

Why did you do this to me?
Boing Boing recently covered someone who is trying to breed cats that look like wolves.  My response can be easily condensed to:

1) That's a dumb thing to try and do
2) They don't look even a little bit like wolves
3) They do look completely messed up and unhealthy

In my opinion breeders should focus on breeding cats to look like... [drum roll] [wait for it] cats.

Healthy, vigorous cats with all of the usual cat pieces, like a nice coat of insulating fur.

Cat breeders are normally pretty good about this sort of thing, but there are always a few trying to "invent" a new breed of flat-faced, mangy, dwarf, flopsy cats.  And apparently always people lining up to buy these pathetic creatures.

For more diseased looking Lykoi cats see their Facebook Page.

  1. Appalling. Those poor, defenseless cats. And when there are enough of them, they'll be the cats who will never be chosen at the animal shelter for a new home because they look diseased.

  2. I can't disagree with you.. Imagine one of those healthy yet mangy looking cats getting into a shelter and the staff taking one look at it and assuming it was ill.. *sigh*
