    So one of the neat things we saw at the show this weekend is a new breed based on what is believed to be a recessive coat trait. Named the Lykoi or Werewolf Cat. They are soft and quite sweet despite of the funky look. :)

    Brittney Gobble- a very reputable Sphynx breeder :) And she has a cobreeder too- I want to say Patti Thomas? I really respect these gals- they are all about health and welfare of their kitties :D Maybe I can get Brittney to come over and tell us more about the breed if you would like?

    I sent an email :) I know Brittney has a new baby, so it's probably 50/50 whether she'll have time to pop by or not :D

    I don't know his name... to busy checking out the kitten which was rude in hindsight.

    Sweet kitten and got a lot of attention and had some of the judges looking at her and talking about the genes and testing they are doing. They have ruled out a number of possible sources through DNA testing and they have pretty much confirmed it is recessive by crossing with a normal coated cat (non carrier) and crossing to Lykois in which case all the kittens are born with this coat. Very unusual to look at!
