Skookum Picture

Cute and interesting comes to mind when looking at this Skookum cat picture. The photographer is the creator of this very rare cat breed. As you can see the Skookum is a dwarf cat, a hybrid, a cross between the rexed (curly haired) LaPerm and the founding dwarf cat, the Munchkin.  It is an American cat breed. The name is interesting and Roy has a nice story to tell about how he came up with the name. In fact all the dwarf cats have interesting names. You can read about them here. This cat was registered with the Rare and Exotic Feline Registry but I don't see it listed at the moment (Dec. 2011). I was also told that the Skookum was accepted as an experimental breed at TICA. TICA don't list experimental breeds on their website so I don't know if this is still the case. The Skookum is registered with the New Zealand cat association: Catz Incorporated.
