Lykoi Breeder - Cats - VIC : Perfect Pets Profile

Please email us direct, as messages through this platform are rarely received.

Lykoi cats are a naturally occurring mutation, from the domestic short hair cat. The sphynx is also naturally occurring breed, although these two breeds are not related, nor carry any of the same genes. There are not great numbers in Australia as yet, but we are hoping the breed will be widely accepted once exposed to the general public.

They are known for their demand attention attitudes, even dog like antics, making them a great family choice. Low maintenance with the occasional ear clean and nail trim of course.
We do not sell entire cat or kittens.

I am a member of the Feline control council here in Victoria, we show our Lykoi s and sphynx.
Do see our site for more info on either of these wonderful breeds.
Heath testing cattery.
