View Lykoi Breeders


Lykoi (Chanan)

The Lykoi cat breed is a new breed, started in 2010 and accepted in 2014 for Preliminary New Breed status in TICA.

The Lykoi cat is the result of a natural mutation occurring in the general domestic cat population. In 2010, two unrelated pairs of siblings were located in Virginia and Tennessee.

In September 2011, the first litter born from the unrelated founding cats was produced by Dr. Johnny Gobble. Dr. Gobble created a strict breeding protocol to broaden the gene pool and establish the breed in the healthiest manner by using black Domestic Shorthairs (random-bred cats) as outcrosses. Through a continued effort the approved breeders hope to create a very diverse gene pool.

It is fondly referred to as the "Werewolf Cat" for its unusual salt-and-pepper coat pattern.

Associations: The Lykoi is accepted for Championship status in TICA and Miscellaneous class in CFA.
