Is this the world's ugliest cat?

\t\t\t\t\t \t\t\t\t\t \tA strange looking cat has been causing a stir at a veterinary hospital in America.
The cat's name is Ugly Bat Boy and he is bald apart from a furry chest.
I'd call him "unique", not ugly.

Looks to me like a sphynx that grew some hair. Unique but definitely not ugly.

I agree with you all, unique, not ugly.

He's definitely not ugly, it's their attitude to the poor cat that's ugly

I thought he's kind of cool looking.

A sphinx with a really long beard.

I love the double eye-blinky he gives the camera.

It looks like a sphynx that bred to something else.
They had him on the news on tv the other night.
His sister died as a kitten.

Why does his chest and belly fur look sort of oily/dirty? Aside from him being a little on the heavy side, he looks like a normal cat to me. Hardly ugly.

Exactly! He certainly seems to be a love.

I think he kind of looks like a miniture lion. He's cute.
Interesting that his sister didn't live. As we all know kitten mortality is high, but was it a result of breeding or not?

Aww I think he's cute! I love how he responds to the vet petting him by turning his head, looks like a sweetheart!

I thought he looked lion-like too. And he is cute.

All cats, by definition, are beautiful. There's no such thing as an ugly cat.

I'm glad the vet is taking good care of this kitty, but I wish he'd give him a better name.

Hmmm... genetically... do you think a Sphynx got crossed with a furred cat and this was the result? Anyone want to hazard a guess? It isn't just fuzz... it's like medium to long hair. Even if he is a genetic anomaly - so what - he's a cutie. He looks like a mane-less lion.

More video from our local TV station

He looks well fed but I think he needs to be brushed.

I'm not a fan of hairless cats myself, but I certainly wouldn't rate this cat the ugliest... I've had chain emails with ugly pics before and seen some cats that were worse looking than this one.

Thanks for posting that link. It's a good thing I moved out of New England or I'd be REALLY tempted to go and try to adopt him from them!

Just remember what my granny always used to say: There is no such thing as an ugly cat.

I agree!

Maybe you do not know this sphynx are bred with cats with fur.
They do not say what kinds of cats bred on there.
Sphynx get oily on their chests.
You should see Cleos clothes.
It does not say how many were in the litter.
I was watching it on kcra a few nights ago before it was in the paper.
Sphynx Allowable Outcross Breeds: American Shorthair, Domestic Shorthair/ Domestic Sphynx Outcross. Sphynx born on or after December 31, 2010 may have only Sphynx parents.

He's not available. There is another story today. The vet who has him isn't giving him up.

They get oily because they do not have any fur underneath.
I use baby wipes to clean Cleo.

But this cat has fur, and it looks like he definitely has the fuzzier underfur - not sure of he has the thicker guard/outer fur.

My point was, his fur looks messy. You'd think they would know and could keep that a little cleaner... I wouldn't leave one of my kitties with icky fur if I could help it. Then again, I've seen a cat at a vet office that was very obese and had very very bad dandruff and dry brittle fur - you'd think the vet would know how to treat such issues...the poor thing was also declawed (as were the other two she had).

No not ugly but in need of a good bath!
post #25 of 27
I was trying to figure the cat out. It definately is a Sphynx but looks like its been crossed with a LaPerm cat with the curly longer fur.
post #26 of 27
Okay...I think he's adorable. He looks like a sphinx wearing a boa.
Definately not ugly, but I agree he could probably use a brush and a bath.
post #27 of 27
I think it's a Sphinx with a genetic mutation. I don't think it was crossed with any other type of cat. And I have to agree that he looks lion-like. That long fur reminds me of a mane.
