You might be surprised to learn how many cat breeds there are! But, some of these purebred cats have a very interesting and unusual appearance. Some are so unusual that you probably haven’t even heard of them.

Now, here are the top 10 weird and unique cat breeds that will simply leave you amazed. Check them out and let me know which one surprised you the most!


Sphynx cats aren’t very unknown, but their appearance is undeniably unusual and unique. These lovely cats are characterized by a nearly hairless body, large ears, lemon-shaped eyes, wrinkles, and a big, round belly.

Despite their lack of fur, these cats require extensive grooming and protection for their sensitive skin. Still, their huge heart and lovely personality make it all worthwhile!


A wolf or a cat? It’s a wolf-cat. If you ask me, this breed of cat is among the most unusual I’ve ever seen. The Lykoi cat owes its wolf-like look to a recessive mutation that results in fewer hair follicles.

Despite their unusual appearance, they are very friendly and energetic cats. So, if you want to have one, don’t expect it to stay still for too long.


If you like Sphynx cats, especially the kitten version, then you’ll be intrigued to learn about the Minskin cat

This breed is a short-legged feline that originated from crossing a hairless Sphynx with an adorable, short-legged Munchkin. They’re very sweet, friendly, and get along beautifully with children and other pets.


The Peterbald is another unique-looking breed of cat, which is also among the rarest cat breeds in the world. They have Russian origin and are characterized by extremely short hair or no hair at all. Besides that, they have large ears and a triangle-shaped head. 


This Thai breed is characterized by a snowy white coat, hence the name Khao Manee, which means “white gem”.

Besides the white coat, the most distinctive feature of this breed is their distinct eye color. A Khao Manee can have blue, gold, or green eyes, or even one of each color. They’re extraordinary!


When I saw this breed of cat for the first time in my life, my thoughts were, “Oh, who styled that fur?” And now you can see why.

This breed of cat is characterized by curly coats which remind of the popular 80s hairstyle, the perm, hence the name. 

Despite their unusual coat, these cats make great pets. They can give you the best of both worlds. They’re great hunters, but also make great lap cats!


Another unusual, miniature cat breed is the Napoleon, named after Napoleon Bonaparte, the military leader famous for his extremely short stature. 

This breed of cat is characterized by tiny short legs, and it’s a result of mixing Munchkin and Persian cats. They’re also called ‘minuet cats’, but one thing is for sure, their short legs can’t stop them from being friendly and active.


Do you know what is the smallest domestic breed of cat in the world? It’s right here on this list, and it’s called the Singapura cat. These tiny cats usually weigh around 4–8 pounds.

They’re characterized by small bodies and large ears and eyes, which makes them too adorable. In addition to that, Singapuras have interesting personalities as well. They’re very curious and love interacting with humans.


Munchkin cats, or as everyone likes to call them the dachshund of cat breeds, is a breed characterized by their short legs. Their short legs are actually a result of a genetic mutation. 

Unfortunately, their legs may cause long bone deformity, which is why many experts don’t approve of their breeding.


I’m sure you’ve already heard about Scottish Fold cats, but due to their distinctive feature, they definitely deserve a place on this list.

Scottish Fold cats are characterized by small, folded ears, which inspired their name. Besides that, they have big round heads, including large round eyes. These cats are very lovely pets, you just can’t get enough of them!

That’s all, I hope you enjoyed learning about these weird and unique felines. Don’t forget to like, share, and let me know which one of these kitties you like the most!
