At October 2013, Snoopy is said to the world’s cutest cat. Of course, you have to ask, “who is saying it?”. Cuteness is in the eye of the beholder.
This cat is cute. However, personally I have to disagree that Snoopy is the cutest of them all because I rule out all extreme bred cats and the Exotic Shorthair is an extreme bred cat – a shorthaired version of the flat-faced Persian, to be exact.
Snoopy is not bred to great extreme but the head and face is unnatural for a cat. In anatomical terminology, this cat has a “brachycephalic” skull – short and round.
I won’t go on but a cat can only be genuinely cute for me if he or she has a natural head shape that is healthy. How can a cat be cute if he is in less than in good health due to a weird head shape?
Interestingly, breeding this sort of skull shape can lead to misaligned jaws, causing the cat to be deemed very ugly. Strange world…….→
Cuteness is apparently not far from ugliness in the cat breed world.
Note: I have taken the liberty of publishing pictures from Snoopy’s FB page. I have provided a link in return. I hope this is OK. If not please leave a comment.
