Hi! I recently learned of a breed of cat called the Ukrainian Levkoy that also has folded ears. I wanted to point them out to you because I don't think you included them in your guide, and I'm not sure if you did that intentionally or weren't aware of the breed.
Both of the reference guides on the housecats here are exquisite, if I may use that word. They are so full of great information, and they will make my life much easier as I slowly try and figure out the many types and how to draw cats better in general. The detail is so helpful, especially the variations and side notes. I can tell that much research has been put into these and all the guides you have created! I truly do thank you for them all.
Anyone else (who reads Warrior Cats by Erin Hunter) think it's a little weird how the Sphynx is also called the Moonstone cat? I wonder what would happen if a Sphynx came across the Clans and said, "I am a Moonstone Cat, more powerful than StarClan"?
We had a friend with a Japanese Bobtail cat, Xena.
Also, did you know that Scottish fold cats the ears have several different fold variations including one with normal ears? They call them double and triple fold(no idea what they look like though) My sister's friend had a cat and, I thought he was a British short-hair by his face and body shape and I asked, turned out he was (according to her mom anyways) and Scottish Fold of the "straight" eared variety. Then I watched something on tv about cat breeds and they said the same thing, and they usually breed a 'straight' eared fold an a folded ear fold rather than two folded ears for health reasons (sort of like why you don't breed two tailless Manx together, dangerous for the offspring-though in the Manx cause it can be lethal).
Wow! I'm only an amateur artist and mainly a writer. But I have to say, these wonderful tutorials are incredibly detailed and well done. Maybe I can now draw cats with better skill using these. Thank you for doing them.
AH! I have a Japanese Bobtail! (I wondered if you'd do that one.) Well, we're pretty sure he is. He was a stray we picked up at a shelter while we lived in Japan. He's an orange tabby and he has the "bunny tail", incredibly soft fur, and his face is similar to what you have in your pictures. BUT his body is like a Manx. Seriously, he's just very... round shaped. Not fat, just round. We affectionately refer to him as "Bowling Ball Butt". (Seriously, his butt is wider than his shoulders. Though I'm sure it's frustrating for him, it's really funny watching him think he can squeeze into a narrow space because his shoulders fit, only to find out his butt is too big.)
I wonder if all the breed is similar in temperament as mine? He's the sweetest, silliest, most affectionate cat I've ever come across in my life. I own 3 right now and I totally admit he's my favorite. He probably does have some surprises in his family tree....
If you're interested, here is a picture of him sleeping: [link]
