We know that everybody out there wants a cat with radar dishes for ears, so here you go. It’s called the Cornish Rex. There’s more than just headgear to talk about here, though. They have three different types of hair in their coats, they tend to thin out or go bald and will often hang out near warm places such as lightbulbs or computers.
They’re known as the Greyhound of cats since they’re sleek and love to gallop around. They often enjoy playing and racing. If you want one of these skinny kitties, it will cost anywhere from eight to thirteen hundred dollars.
A Mountain Lion Got Inside
If we tell you that this immense kitty is bred from wild jungle cats, we bet you'd believe us. Well, that's the honest truth. By now, they're completely domestic in temperament, though they certainly still look the part. They're known as Chausies, and they still have a little bit of wildness in them.
Breeders outbred most of the wild attributes, but Chausies are still playful and intelligent. They're incredibly energetic as kittens, and they only slow down a little bit as they age. However, they hate being alone and need a human or other pet in the house – dogs are a perfect choice. These animals are expensive: up to three grand.
Like a China Teacup Turned Into a Cat
The experts are unsure if the Colorpoint Shorthair cat is a new breed or a variation on an existing one, but one thing is for certain – they sure look pretty. Pointed like the Siamese cat and glossy like the American Shorthair (the two progenitors of the breed), the Colorpoint Shorthair surely draws the eye.
Just like every other member of the Siamese family tree, the Colorpoint Shorthair is friendly to people, familiar or not. They're quite extroverted and love playing. However, they can be somewhat sensitive, and they may have some trouble adjusting to changes such as a new home. They're even somewhat affordable: prices range between six and eight hundred.
It's So Fluffy I'm Gonna Die!
If you're after a cat that has hair for days, you should go for a Manx. But what about a long-haired cat that originates from the Isle of Man? Then you should pick up a Cymric cat, also known as a Manx Longhair. Just look at that fur, you can practically braid it. Like Manx cats, they often have short tails or lack them entirely.
Getting one from a breeder will run you between three hundred and six hundred dollars. However, if you want a placid, chill cat that doesn't get too upset about things, it might be the cat for you.
Time to Catch Some Snakes
The Cyprus cat, or Cypriot cat, first arrived in Cyprus after a bunch of them were brought over from the Middle East to hunt snakes on the island. While they might not do that as much anymore, they're still great hunters that will not let little creatures escape. Feral cats can be found all over the island of Cyprus, but there are plenty of breeders, too, with a cost between three hundred and six hundred dollars.
They're known to be friendly and energetic, and they like being around people. They're a good choice for families with kids, dogs, or other cats.
