Strange Breeds of Cats (Part 2)

Savannah

Savannah cat is the name given to the offspring of a domestic cat and a serval — a medium-sized, large-eared wild African cat.Bengal breeder Judee Frank crossbred a male Serval, belonging to Suzi Woods, with a Siamese (domestic cat) to produce the first Savannah cat (named Savannah) on April 7, 1986. Frank’s Savannah attracted the interest of Patrick Kelley, who purchased one of Savannah's kittens in 1989.Kelley was one of the first enthusiasts who worked towards establishing a new domestic breed based on a Serval/domestic cat cross. He approached many Serval breeders to help in the development of this new breed, and finally garnered the help of breeder Joyce Sroufe to work with him in taking the steps needed to have the new breed recognized.



Teacup Persians

Teacup Persian cats are miniature cats, and so they do not grow to the size of most other breeds of cats. Therefore they are great for people who are looking for a pet that is not going to be that difficult to look after and groom and they are also super cute.


Teacup cats have become incredibly popular over the past few years in particular and with many families living in apartments and small houses, pet owners have come to find that these smaller cats fit perfectly in their downsized living quarters.



Munchkin

Munchkin cats are essentially a product of the genetic defect known as “achondroplasia” which causes deformations in the spine. Because of the defect ‘pure’ munchkin cats will usually die so the breed is normally recognized when a cat carrying the ‘munchkin’ genes is bred with another type of cat. Typically the cats of this breed will look normal but will have a larger head in contrast to their shorty, stumpy legs.



Devon Rex

The Devon Rex is a breed of intelligent, nappy-haired cat that emerged in England during the 1960s. They are known for their slender bodies and large ears, similar to the Cornish Rex.



Pixie-Bob


The Pixie-Bob is a breed of housecat. The breed was claimed by breed founder Carol Ann Brewer to be a progeny of naturally occurring bobcat hybrids; however, later DNA testing failed to detect Bobcat marker genes, and these cats are considered wholly domestic for the purposes of ownership, cat fancy registration, import and export.
