|List of Cat Breeds|
The Lykoi, also known as werewolf cat, is a partially hairless breed of cat that has an appearance similar to the classic Hollywood werewolf. It is the result of a natural mutation of a domestic shorthaired cat
Breed history and informationEdit
In Virginia, 2010, two families of domestic shorthairs with the Lykoi gene were adopted from a rescue after being discovered in Virginia in 2010, by Patti Thomas, who co-founded and named the breed.
But in 2011 Tennessee, a second pair was located.
Lykoi vary from completely covered in hair to partially hairless. Their hair is silvery-black, and the hair looks bristly.
This gives them a Werewolf like appearance.
- Lykoi means wolf in Greek.
