Weirdest, Rarest Cat Breeds in the World

We found 7 cat breeds that pack really strange features. Do you know breeds that are even more bizarre? List them down with your comments.

1

Munchkin

Munchkin

This one is so rightly named! One look at it and people go “Awww…!”
Munchkin cats have unusually small legs, and, along with short, pointy ears and innocent eyes, these furry felines become way too adorable to ignore. Its tiny legs are a result of natural genetic mutation.

2

Norwegian Forest

Norwegian Forest

Known for their incredibly good hunting tendencies, these cats have developed long and dense fur to survive the frigid conditions of Norway.

3

Manx

Manx

A cat with no tail? Yes, that is the defining feature of cats of this breed. And people also fancy them for their strange walk – which results from having longer hind legs as compared to the front ones.

4

The Sphynx

The Sphynx

Contrary to the most common belief, the cats of this breed are not totally bald but have very fine hair all over their body, though the lack of dense fur makes them vulnerable to cold and sunburns.

5

Scottish Fold

Scottish Fold

These cats retain their kitten-like ears. Their ears don’t stand up or become pointy, but rather fold down very early in their life. This unique feature makes them appear young throughout their life.

6

Bat Boy

Bat Boy

Sometimes, the cats of this breed are also known as “Uggs” or Ugly Bat Boy. Apart from a rat-like tail, its body is also almost hairless, except for long fur on its chest. While some consider it as a rare breed, others say it may be the result of some genetic anomaly.

7

Peterbald

Peterbald

These cats are known for their almond-like eyes and slender, long, and elegant looks. Because of a genetic condition, Peterbald felines either lose their hair completely over time or are born hairless.
