Ever wished you could have a cat that acted like a dog? This week, a new ‘werewolf’ cat breed was introduced to the world. And they’re pretty much the best of both worlds.
Lykoi (Greek for “wolves”) have earned the nickname because they’re bred to act like hound dogs rather than cats. They wag their tails, track scents, and play fetch. They also look thoroughly wolf-esque.
And, according to their founder (should we say creator? leader?) Dr. Johnny Gobble, the bizarre hybrid is far more loyal than the average feline.
The breed is naturally occurring and has a mutation which causes their fur to be patchy, giving them their werewolf-like appearance.
While the breed is incredibly unique, Gobble says that they’re perfectly healthy and that extensive tests have ruled out any major health concerns.
Which is unfortunate because we want seven. Maybe eight.
