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.
They Hear All
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.
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.
A Curly-Haired Kitty With Big Ears
Related slightly to the breeds Cornish Rex and German Rex, the Devon Rex has a similar (though not identical) curl in the hair and big ears. Their slender bodies are elegant and attractive, and their big ears make it hard to miss them when they walk into the room. They've been called a monkey in a cat suit – they're active, mischievous, and love their people.
They like being in the high spot and tend to squeeze themselves into all sorts of small places. They can be trained to walk on a leash and do some other tricks, too. A quality kitty could cost a full thousand.
Looks Like a Mob Boss
Known as a Don Sphynx or a Russian Hairless, this cat is quite the... attention grabber. Surprisingly not related to the better-known Sphynx cat, the hairlessness in the Don Sphynx is due to a dominant mutation – most cats that breed with one will produce a litter that will eventually lose its fur. Despite how odd and unfriendly they can look, these cats are some of the most playful and loyal cats that one can find – they're so affectionate they appear to be part dog.
However, for most people, the price will be untenable – the low cost is about fifteen hundred dollars, while the upper is in the forty-five hundred dollar range.
