A-Z: Unusual-Looking Cats and Ukrainian Levkoy

Truly, there is no such thing as an ugly cat. But some are so unusual-looking they're down right cute.

  1. Well, I must admit I prefer normal, cuddly cats, these all look a bit daunting! Have a good start in the week, hugs, Valerie

  3. So many interesting varieties.

    However, I won't be shaving my two anytime soon...I think they'd kick up a fuss if I tried! ;)

    1. Oh yeah:)
      I'd get lion cuts in the summer for my long hairs and my himmie would complain for days:)
      Though, the hairless variety don't have that option:(

  4. The Ukrainian cat has almost dog-like features, especially around the head and ears.

    1. Hi Diane,
      Good eye. I missed that. He walks rather like a dog too.

  5. Hi, dear Sandra!

    I like to think there is no ugly creature in the whole world because every living thing is designed and engineered for a specific purpose. These kitties are indeed cute including the hairless Ukranian in the video. He has a soft, endearing meow.

    Happy Monday, dear friend Sandra!

  6. I'd rather have them with fur, just seems weird without it. But sure I'd get used to it.

  7. I'm sure they're nice animals but I'll give that one a pass!

  8. I guess if shedding drove you batty enough, this would be the cat for you.

      Good point. It would be interesting to see their reaction.

  10. Unusual, but practical I guess, not so much shedding there.

    Love and hugs

  12. Truly unusual. Not at all cuddly looking, but neither are some humans. :)

    1. Ha about the humans! Boy is that the truth!

  13. It's funny that often some of the dogs and cats that are called "ugliest" are just hairless...that's all. Some of them are beautiful merely because of their uniqueness, I think!

    1. Well said, Steph! I completely agree.

  14. These certainly were unusual but nevertheless loveable.

  15. Exactly, Yvonne, unusual but loveable.

  16. I was just reading a blog where the lady found a kitten in the street and tried to find the owner. Her own cat isn't friendly, so after a full day of trying to find a home for this kitten, she had to give it up to PAWS. And to think, this was an adorable kitten.

    I'm surprised at how the ugly ones are actually more loved than the beautiful cuddly ones. Of course, I have a soft spot for ALL cats, so I have to stay away from pet stores and humane societies. Even the ugly ones are beautiful to me. And the ones you showed are truly adorable!

    1. All kitties are beautiful. Cats usually take awhile to warm up to kittens. A day doesn't normally cut it. Though I had a male that was quite the nurturer.
      Hope your bday was wondrous!

  17. The minskin is cute :) I do prefer fur on my cats, but the hairless would be great for those with cat hair allergies.

    ReplyDelete
  18. It seems like that would be the case, but my understanding is the allergies are from the dander, so...if they don't have any dander...due to not having any hair...that would work:) I think the minskin is cute too:)

  19. That pussy cat...was it designed that way to be hairless or natural...or a product of a nuclear fall out?? :) Sorry but, you know, are they affectionate? Every animal deserves love and they can't help they have no fur. If it is ever cold, they need a sweater for warmth I am thinking

  20. Yes, they do serve love, Birgit and yeah, I don't see them doing that well in Canada...
