Cats have long held a special place in human history for thousands of years, and are one of the most popular pets in the entire world.

Here are ten of the more unusual cat breeds out there.

Devon Rex

The Devon Rex has been around since sometime in the 1960s. They are a thin, wiry feline that has very little “guard hair” on their bodies. They are known for having stiff, waterproof hair that is generally associated with furry mammals.

The Scottish Fold has a weird dominant genetic mutation that forces the cartilage in their ears to fold in half, and even up to two or three times in a row. Their ears begin to flop forward, giving them a round-faced appearance of innocence.
