Picture of a tiny, dark chocolate Oriental Shorthair kitten with huge ears and sharp claws sitting in a hand

Strange looking kitten

Is this a cat? Yes, an Oriental SH with massive ears and an altogether strange appearance for a domestic cat. I don’t know who took the picture.

The Oriental SH is known for slenderness and long legs and, yes, large ears but this strange looking individual has really odd ears. The breeders have altered the anatomy of this cat to the point where the the animal looks unlike a cat as we know it. I know breeders want to take selective breeding to extremes so that their cats stand out but this really is too far.
