Best Cat Breeds to Own

I usually call cats domestic or purebred. Domestic cats do not have a genealogical history of their pedigree, while they are purebred cats. Some breeds have existed for many, many years and that is why they have won over many cat lovers. It is possible that these breeds have grown in popularity because of the film that presented one of them, unique personality traits, or physical appearance that make them difficult to forget.

Siamese Cat


This breed of cat originated in Thailand (formerly known as Zion) and has been popular since the 19th century. Siamese, including Oriental Shorthair, Sphinx, and Himalayan, has helped establish many other breeds. Siamese cats have different markings called thorns, and these are areas of coloration on the face, ears, legs, and tail, but some Siamese cats may not have tips. There are also two types of Siamese cats, one with an apple-shaped head and a full-body, and the other with a larger head and a slimmer figure. Many Siamese cats from Thailand had a tail on their tail. This trait was created by most Siamese, but you will still find it in stray Siamese cats in Thailand.


The Persians also called one of the spotted cats, have beautiful long clothes. Depending on the pet registration organization you are looking at, they can have almost any color, compared to most other cat breeds, they have a flattened snout. Some race descriptions even claim that the nose cannot go beyond the eyes when seen in profile. For years, Persians have been seen in many movies, arts, commercials, and homes, and for decades they have been one of the most common breeds of cats. Their coats require regular care, as otherwise, entanglement will occur. Like many purebred dogs, they are prone to a variety of diseases, including kidney and heart problems. The Persians are also known as the long-haired Persians, the Iranian cat, and the Shirazi cat, in honor of the city of Shiraz in Iran, because it originally imported them from Iran.

Persian Cat
Maine Coon

Maine Coon

Known for its tall stature and thick fur coats, the Maine Coon is a cat hard to ignore. Coming from the state of Maine and the official cat state, the Maine Coon is a gentle giant. They still make up one of the most common breeds of cats. Maine Coons have extra toes, a feature known as polydactyly, which makes their already enormous feet even bigger. This is a great resource for snow hunting, as the enormous feet behave like snow ducks. The classic color of the Maine Coon is spotted brown, but this breed can have almost any color.


Ragdoll cats are named because of their obedient temperament. They seem to soften when caught, like a rag doll. I even thought I couldn’t feel the pain. But this is just a myth. Ragdoll with its sharp color patterns is reminiscent of long-haired Siamese cats. They also have distinctive blue eyes and, following their owners around the yard, a canine personality.

Randoll Cat
Bengal Cat


Bengals are wild-looking cats – literally. Their markings make them look more like they belong to the jungle than at home, but even though they are domesticated cats. They are talkative and require a lot of practice. It allows many colors in Bengal, but their approved standards include only stains and rosettes. Its name comes from the taxonomic name of the Asian leopard cat, Prionailurus bengalensis, because Bengalis were originally bred from both domestic and wild cats. They also get their beautiful models from this wild cat.


Originally from Ethiopia (formerly known as Abyssinia), the Abyssinian cat has a special layer of red/orange agouti. Agouti fur, so there are light and dark stripes on each hair, gives the Abyssinian its unique look. Besides the most commonly known color as reddish, Abyssinians can also be cinnamon, white and blue.

Abyssinian Cat breed
Birman kitten breed


The Birman is another sharp cat-like the Siamese and the Ragdoll. They have blue eyes and hair of medium length, but not an underground layer, which distinguishes them from the Persians and the Himalayas. In the Ragdoll’s development, they used the Burmese for breeding, so they look very similar, but may have slightly different brands and personalities.


Very similar to the Persian, the Himalayan cat is considered a sub-breed in some feline associations and a breed in others. The Himalayas were created by crossing Persians and Siamese to achieve their colors. The Himalayas come only in the color of dots, but that pattern can be a variety of colors.

himalayas cat
Shorthair cat

American Shorthair cat

An all-American breed, the short American coat is a large, intelligent, short-haired cat with a round face and short ears. They are often confused with domestic mixed breed cats, but they are purebreds, and it changed their names in 1966 from short-haired domestic cats, helping them to differentiate.

Devon Rex

Devon Rex cats have short, wavy hair and a thin body. Their skin is also very soft and their ears are very large. Devon Rex is a playful and active cat and is sometimes described as a monkey in overalls.

Devon Rex
sphinx cat


If you are looking for a cat that does not let go, then Sphinx is for you. Sphinx cats have a unique appearance because of the lack of hair and are very social, active, and canine cats.
