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 prettymuch 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 isnaturally occurring and hasa mutation which causes their fur to be patchy, giving them their werewolf-like appearance.
While the breed is incrediblyunique, Gobble says that they’re perfectly healthy and thatextensivetests have ruled out any major health concerns.
The bad news? Since the breed is so new, a Lykoi will set you back about $2,500. And there’s a seriously long waiting list, too.
Which is unfortunate because we want seven. Maybe eight.
