A Caracal cat named Demo Moore, one of the world’s most expensive and rare cat breeds which could set you back around 1.5 million roubles (about €22,100/$23,400), was presented by its owner in St. Petersburg, Wednesday.

The nine month old cat named Demi Moore cost its owner Anastasia Timokhina, a resident of St. Petersburg, a million roubles (€14,800 / $15,550), as she pre-ordered the kitten before she was born.

Demi Moore is one of 30 Caracal cats in the world, making the breed especially rare. All of the Caracals currently live in Russia. The breed was created by crossing a wild Caracal cat and an Abyssinian cat.

When fully grown, a Caracal cat can grow up to 50 centimetres (19.7 inches) in height and weigh up to 15 kilograms (33 lbs).

SOT, Anastasia Timokhina, Cat owner (Russian): “Our whole family loves cats and we wanted something exotic, unusual, some kind of wonder. We considered wildcats, like Caracals and Servals, but they are not that tame.”

SOT, Anastasia Timokhina, Cat owner (Russian): “At the moment, kittens of this breed cost about 1.5 million roubles. We bought this cat for a million roubles, because we pre ordered the kitten, we waited for a long until it was born.”
