The Ukrainian Levkoy (Ukrainian: Óêðà¿íñüêèé ëåâêîé) is a cat breed of distinct appearance, having inward-folding ears and little to no hair. These cats are of medium size with a longish body, appearing both muscular and slender. They have soft, elastic skin; an excess of which leads to a wrinkled appearance. Levkoy cat's peculiar features are: special angular contour of its head and "stepped" profile (dogface appearance) folded ears and large, but not well wide opened, almond-shaped eyes. They are very friendly and active and interact very well in a human environment. The cats express sexual dimorphism.
The Ukrainian Levkoy is recent man-made breed (2000–2011), originally developed by Elena Biriukova in Ukraine. Created by crossing or by out breeding of the hairless Donskoy Sphinx females with Scottish Fold Metis males, the Ukrainian Levkoy has a distinct and unique appearance. There were used two spontaneous Dominant mutations gene FD of cats with folded ears, that appeared in a simple domestic cat in Scotland and a spontaneous natural Dominant mutation of hairlessness or boldness of domestic cats gene BD in Russia, that appeared in the last century in Scotland and in Russia. Also in mating there were used Oriental and Domestic cats to obtain the others required individual characteristics of Ukrainian levkoys as the cat breed.The breed is recognized in 2005 in Ukraine by ICFA RUI “ROLANDUS UNION INTERNATIONAL” such as it was starting in Russia in 2010 by ICFA WCA too. In Ukraine starting in September 2010 to Ukrainian levkoys may be awarded the CHAMPION title and they can take part in competition THE BEST IN SHOW. Nowadays there are 10 Ukrainian levkoys who are gifted the title of Champion and The Best in Show . In Russia the first titles of CHAMPION and The Best in Show was gifted in 2011.The others Felinological organizations are mating this new breed Ukrainian Levkoy as an experimental breed without Champions titles at the Cats Exhibitions.
Ukrainian levkoys are very friendly, playful, intelligent and smart cats. And they are a pleasure to own. Levkoys are very sociable cats enjoying human or family company as the company of the other domestic pets dogs, rats, pigs. Naked Ukrainian levkoys do not need brushing but do need special skin care to give protection against direct harsh sun and particularly cold conditions.
DEVELOPMENT and APPEARANCE
Disqualify it defects of the born structures, one or both eyeliner’s turn in ward; crossed eyes. Other disqualify in accordance with the show rules.its penalize Too Short round head, round eyes, short “cobby” body, weak chin, stressful behavior. All colors are accepted. Tabby cats, are not differentiated by pattern but the coat has totally bare skin is preferable. But young cats, or show cats of the first period of selection may have remnants of fur on points or be evenly coated with short (1–3 mm) velour fur all over the body. For breeding purposes cats of “brush” variation are acceptable having coarser curly fur all over the body with possible bare areas on head, neck, back; as well as cats with soft, curly, modified (synthetic) fur while the skin is thick “excessive” elastic and wrinkled on the head, above and under the eyes, on the neck, belly, legs and the groin. Preferable are the hairless cats. its tail rather long, flexible, tapering to the tip, in proportional to the body of cat. the eyes are large, not wide opened almond shaped, set slanted and giving the cat an unusually magic look. Any colors allowed, but it should be pure and deep.its legs are rather long, strong boned, in proportion to the body and paws Oval, with long mobile toes, its body is medium to long, muscular, slender, not massive or coarse. Back line slightly arched with a chest Not broad, of oval shape. but the ears are large, set high and wide apart. 1/2 or 1/3 part of each ear is roundly folded forward and down, without touching the head. The remarkable part of Ukrainian levkoys does not have folded ears because the breed mating guides with the rule of heterozygous form on folded ears pairing. So it is for one of the parents of Ukrainian levkoy kittens must be without the Dominant gene FD and must have only normal straight ears. The other parent must have folded ears as it has in their genotype the Dominant gene FD in heterozygous form too. All kitten Straight eared have not any Dominant FD gene. The Straights variety of Ukrainian levkoy breed is the complemented helping part of the breed. The same rule of mating it is used in the Scottish fold breed mating because the both breeds are based on the same Dominant gene FD. Gene FD presented in the organism of cat in homozygous,the both parents may serve as provocation of bones illness such arthritis is or the others bones mistakes. the nose not long and not broad, with clear step up on the eyes level,muzzle is Not long, is slightly rounded, with clear muzzle break, The whiskers are curly, may be shortly snapped, and then the neck Of medium length, muscular, slightly arches from the shoulder to the base of the skull. the head A longed modified wedge shaped.From the top view angle head of Ukrainian Levkoy resembles a soft outlined pentagon that is a little longer than it is broad, where the muzzle length is only 1/3 part of the head. The forehead is rather low and the skull is long and flat. Prominent cheekbones and eyebrows form the angular outlines of the head. Profile of the cat head is “stepped” of two levels. The upper lines of nose bridge and of the head are almost parallel.
The average litter size is generally three to five kittens, that need constant attention for about 16 weeks. Absolutely naked kittens need especial attention, because they tend to be weaker than the others. Adult Levkoys are very healthy cats though, and tend to be active.
Hope to see you back here soon, George!
Thanks Nyack....the cat doesn't look very happy does he!
Thanks for all your work Nyack!
