You’d be forgiven for thinking these kittens were adorable tiny werewolves – but they’re actually an extremely rare cat breed that won’t be caught howling at every full moon. 

Lykoi cats are famed for being only partially covered in hair and come with a hefty price tag for their werewolf resemblance, at around £2,000 a kitten. 

Dorota Strychar, 36, from Legnica, Poland, says she is the country’s first breeder of Lykoi cats and has been breeding them since late 2017. 

She currently owns four adult cats and six kittens and has racked up tons of fans from across the world after posting viral pictures of her adorable litters online. 

Lykoi is Greek for wolves, and the cats are known for being incredibly active, needing lots of attention – and food – from their owners. 

Their adorable appearance is actually a natural mutation from a pair of domestic shorthair cats that each bore a hairless gene. The Lykoi breed is relatively new and was only developed in Tennessee in 2011.
