Postcards from Meow MeetUp: Lykoi






Sorry, my photos are so poor, but...kittens!

I spent some time with a breeder of Lykoi cats, from Wisconsin.  She displayed the kittens in the Cat Fanciers Association area at Meow MeetUp Chicago in July.

Seriously, these are kittens...adorable, playful baby cats, with a little or no underfur.  Therefore, some parts of their skin is exposed, especially around their face and paws.  According to what I've researched, this was an natural mutation.  Their fur is soft, and that warm skin just completely melted my heart!

After only a few moments, I fell in LURV!

I am proud to say that my favorite breed is RESCUED, but I'll always have a fillip of desire for a Lykoi cat, now that I've played with these two.  They are beautiful, unique, and I am so glad that I had the chance to meet them in the fur...skin...well, you know what I mean!

I have the contact information for the breeder; actually, we chatted for a good long while.

  2. I have never heard of them. They have long toes like Sphynx, but as they are partially furless that is probably why.

  3. Lykoi...I am not at all familiar with them but this one is adorable and too funny fishy name Koi is in its name.

  7. There was a Lykoi at the cat show I was at today! They aren't accepted yet as a full registered breed in CFA, but they are working on it.

  12. Mom likes to visit cat shows, too, but I don't think she's ever met a Lykoi in purrson, let alone pet one. That is so-o cool that you got to! Tummy tickles.

  14. Their fur looks distinctive; is that caused by the lack of under-fur?
