10 Rare Cat Breeds


1. Serengeti


The Serengeti cat was created by crossing a Bengali and an Oriental Shorthair. Serengeti cats are spotted cats with long legs and very large ears with rounded tips. They have a long neck that blends into the base of the skull without tapering.

Although these cats are breeds of two different species, they are relatively healthy animals. They are susceptible to the most common feline diseases, but on the other hand, these cats can have a life expectancy of up to 10 years.

2. Sphinx

This hairless cat breed was created by selection in the 1960s. Did you know that, although these cats look “hairless,” they don’t have any? Instead, their skin is covered with fine hairs that are said to be like suede. As a result, they lose more body heat than their furry companions.

The Sphynx is described as being more like a dog than a true cat, being very friendly to strangers, and greeting their owners at the door. They can live to be 13 or 14 years old and need a bath every 1 to 2 weeks, as oils accumulate in their body.
