The Sumxu, Chinese Lop-Eared Cat, Drop-eared cat, Droop-eared cat, or Hanging-Ear cat, all names referring to its characteristic feature of pendulous ears, was a long-haired lop-eared breed of cat now considered extinct. The descriptions are based on reports from travellers, on a live cat taken to Hamburg by a sailor and on a taxidermy specimen exhibited in Germany. The cats were valued as pets, but was also described as a food. The last reported Chinese Lop-eared cat was in 1938. It is believed to be a mutation similar to that found in the Scottish Fold or American Curl.
