The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues. Liz Taylor

Actually, these make great pets. They actually have more dog-like mannerisms than cat. They can be leash trained, they love water, but they are the world's largest domestic breed of cat and they have super leaping ability. They can leap eight feet straight up from a sitting position and go about 40 lbs in the larger F1 types. From what I understand they get along well with other pets and humans.

One of those kitties reminds me a little of the aye-aye (spelling). Those big eyes and cute face.
They look adorable though but if their appearance is due to some genetic mutation then what else are these mutations affecting. It is never restricted to just the fur...or lack thereof.

I agree with Ryu and Redhed. Breeders have not done cats or dogs any favors with their genetic tricks. They have just created another animal to suffer all its life with genetic problems. I get in arguments with breeders all the time over this.

Get yourself one of those 'were-cat' thingies in the UK and within seconds the RSPCA would be feeling your collar for animal neglect!
