Paws Up for Wednesday – What’s New Under the Cat’s Paw?

Most of us adore cats—all cats, any cat no matter their background. I don’t know about you, but I love meeting up with new cats and seeing cat antics on the Internet. Cats are all catlike, yet they come in so many different shapes, colors, styles, and personalities. While I don’t buy cats from breeders, I’m always curious about new and unique breeds of cat. I imagine you are, too. So here’s a rundown on some I discovered (or revisited) this week. You can see 15 of them displayed at this site.

Here are a few that grabbed my attention: The Highlander is an experimental breed—a cross between a Desert Lynx and a Jungle Curl. These cats have a wild look about them with curled ears and a bob tail and wild markings in a variety of shades and coat patterns.

The Aphrodite or Cyprus is an interesting breed, occurring naturally and can be traced back to over 10,000 years. So these cats have come from a feral population of cats. I found it interesting that their coloring and markings vary

Some of these cats are considered Aphrodite Giants and they can reach weights of 11 to 18 pounds for females and as much as 24 pounds for males.

If you enjoy knowing about some of the most rare and unique cats around, do as I did and initiate a search to learn more.
