Is this the world's scariest cat? Sphynx monster looks more like a gremlin than a pussycat
Daily Mail [UK] ^ | 18 March 2012 | Emily Allen

With looks like this you would probably want to keep this moody moggy hidden indoors.

But remarkably this Don Sphynx cat - who looks not dissimilar to ET and a Gremlin - has been drawing hundreds of admirers at a cat show.

The scary looking feline - who judging from this photo was having a really bad day - was showcased in Bishkek in Kyrgyzstan this weekend.

Reminds me of Mr. Bigglesworth. Maybe this can be the new cat for Dr. Evil to own!

Now that’s a pet that Hussein would look natural with.
The dog Bo just doesn’t suit him.

Good night Freepers!
(hope I don’t see that kitty in a nightmare!)

No dice. Hairless cat = Fail. Much rather a cat with “tabby” coloration; that’s the closest to the wild cat that I can see . . .

No doubt. Sphynx cats are also supposed to be very affectionate. Poor baby is probably overstimulated by the noise and crowds.

That's how people interpret their snuggling up.

Hint: They have no fur, and you are warmer than the floor...

This lovely Bengal came to our house when she was about half grown. Never could find her owner. She's been a delight.

Strangely enough, sometimes a dog, especially a female, will
take to a small kitten.
Hate to see you deprive yourself of the company of a cat.

Very intelligent, very loving, but also high maintenance. Their skin exudes a waxy substance and it requires bathing at least once a week. Their ears and claws are also prone to wax build-up.

Still, if I were younger...

You got a Bengal for free, Score!

They go for over $1,000 for a kitten and they are supposed to be smart and affectionate, although every cat I’ve had has been like that.

We got a light Tuxedo cat that way. She’s extremely smart (and well fed) so we figured the owner would miss her. Put up signs, no response.

Your Bengal is beautiful.

Thanks for reminding me to fill the food dish before I go to bed tonight.

If I do that, the cat knocks it off the counter in the middle of the night and it's metal so it wakes everyone up. The cat sits there and waits for it to be refilled. Now who is smarter, me or the cat???? The cat obviously.

Thanks.
Yes, we got a Bengal for free.
I happpened to go out into the garage one day and she ran out.
It was obvious that she had been out on her own for quite some time. She was skin and bones, dirty and very frightened. We asked around the neighborhood and put an ad in the paper to no avail.
We began to feed her and eventuall got her to come inside the house.
We didn’t realize what we had at first- until she fattened up and her beautiful coat became lush and glossy.

We often wonder what her story is- where she came from.
She had already been spayed, so she had belonged to somebody
who cared about her.

Anyway, we’re glad she chose us to come to.
She has been a pure delight, very smart and affectionate.

If you like cats that retain the wild look, check out the Savannah..recently given the OK to be registered as a breed, a cross between a wild\ Serval cat and house cat...they are the tallest cat and look wild, retains all of the spots and long legs....but expensive most start at about 1000 dollars...interesting history...but the most beautiful cat I have have seen...the Bengals are also beautiful....can be taken for walks like a dog....

Well, Hussein has had a history of flies landing on him.
Seems like there are several pictures of him with them on his face. That’s about the level of pet he deserves, house flies.

As long as he’s on “the rubber chicken lecture circuit” starting next January,,,that’s the only thing I want.

Cheers
