The ugliest cat breeds have numerous fans, unusual is in vogue! Is it just the “otherness”, the being outside the norm or mainstream?

“Ugly Bat Boy” known as the ugliest cat

For a long time, “Ugly Bat Boy” or “Uggs” was considered the ugliest cat in the world.  A corpulent kitty with mousy skin and a wrinkled face. Completely naked except for a chewy ruff, with no fur. The cat was a celebrity in his own way for years. On the World Wide Web he was famous as the ugliest cat in the world. In the meantime he has passed away, but even after his death he still holds the title! The users have probably not found a successor for him yet… We want to let the famous cat rest in peace and therefore do not place a picture of him.

Kohana known as the ugliest cat breed

Kohanas are completely hairless. They have no fur. Not even a single hair. Kohana cats are not a recognised breed and there are many myths surrounding their origin, but there is agreement on one point: the Kohana is known as the ugliest cat breed. These cats lack tactile hairs and whiskers and since these hairs are an important sensory organ for cats, according to the German Animal Welfare Act (TierSchG §11b) breeding these cats is considered torture breeding. This kind of breeding is therefore forbidden in Germany. So a title without a remedy.
