Top 10 Strangest Cats in the World

Strange Cat Montage

There are approximately 8 million cats in the UK and a whopping 600 million cats in the world but none as strange and peculiar as the top 10 cats on this list.  Some are world record breakers and some are certainly just very different but all of them have had their claim to fame at one point or another.

Here is out top 10 of the strangest cats in the world:

10)  This chimera cat is named Venus and has two faces; orange on the left side with a blue eye and black on the right side with a green eye.  Doctors say it’s possible she has different DNA on each side of her face.  Venus has over 1.3m Facebook fans already.

2)  The oldest cat in the world is a domestic cat named Crème Puff.  According to the Guiness World Records the cat died in 2010 aged 38 years and 3 days which is more than double the life expectancy of most cats although cats in the wild may not live as long as 5 years.

1)  Scrappy the cat was born a black cat but since the age of 7 he has been turning white – some say he is the Michael Jackson of cats.  Despite the pigment in his skin turning colour, Scrappy is fit and healthy.

So there you have it – the top 10 strangest cats in the world.

It’s interesting to think that about 75% of the most popular cat breeds include the British/American shorthair, Siamese cat, Persian cat, Ragdoll, Maine coon, Bengal cat and Abyssinian cat and yet none of the most popular cat breeds are featured in this top 10 strange cat list.

But whether you have a strange cat or not, the Tabcat cat tracker can still be used to track your cat or kitten however large or small, bushy eyed or multi-coloured.   Simply place the Tabcat cat tracker on your cat’s collar and when he and she goes missing, you can track it to within 2.5cm and have that extra peace of mind that the love of your life can easily be found.
