The Abyssinian is moderate in appearance in all aspects with smooth areas on his head. He has a gentle tilt on the triangular head. His rather large ears sitting tilted forward on his head gave him an alert and aware look of himself as if he was always watching everything that was happening around him. His eyes, which were large on his face, showed the vigilance and intelligence inherent in his offspring.

The coat in the Abyssinian is short and has tufts of hair on its ears. The Abyssinian coloring is very special. Most fur has bands of color on each individual hair with the coat appearing darker along the spine line. The color on its body softens and brightens under the cat’s neck and underside and the insides of its paws.

Personality:

Despite being an active cat, the Abyssinian is an easy cat to have in your home. They love humans and other animals. They will play with their own toys for hours but also enjoy good interactive playtime with their parents. They will speak to you in a soft and calm voice. Abyssinians are affectionate and affectionate, and love spending time with their parents. While the Abyssinian coat is easy to care for, the Abyssinian likes to be combed or buffed with a chamois. He will reward you with a loving purr.

Living together:

Abyssinians are active cats and will generally keep their weight under control with compensatory exercise. They should have some high perches and cat trees available to them so they can jump and climb.

Abyssinians are social cats and like company. This company can be provided by having a cat or other pet around when a human friend isn’t home.

However, you will notice that the coat is tipped subtly with black, giving the fur a lovely silver sheen.

Foreign White Cat 

oriental foreign white cat

Cat Breed List.

Foreign White cats will basically have the same physical features of a Siamese cat, except they’ll be completely white and lack the usual color patterns that Siamese cats will eventually grow into.

These cats are also strong, lean, and muscular, as well as strikingly beautiful. And like the gorgeous Siamese cats that so many people love, the Foreign White will have incredibly beautiful blue eyes.

Colors

Foreign Whites are also extremely loyal, often bonding very strongly to one member of the family. Because these cats have a dominant white gene, it will remove any instance of any other color from the coat. With this gene in place, a Foreign White kitten will grow into an adult without ever developing any of the chocolate, lilac, blue, or black colors that typical Siamese kittens would develop naturally.

Grooming Requirements

Foreign Whites don’t require extensive grooming, so you can simply brush your cat’s fur once a week, in addition to brushing his teeth, trimming his claws, and cleaning his ears whenever necessary. This weekly brushing should be enough to keep the coat feeling soft and looking glossy, and it can also prevent hairballs and excess shedding. Plus, because your Foreign White will love the attention, it’s a great way to bond with your cat.

Height: 8-10 inches

Weight: 8-10 lb

Lifespan: 15-20 years

Physique: Slim, elegant

Best Suited For: Any cat loving family, including those with children and other pets, as well as singles and elderly individuals

Korat Cat

korat cat price
vetwork.co

Cat Breed List.

The cat korat is one of the oldest, most stable breeds in the world. Revered in their native Thailand as a “good luck cat,” Korats are traditionally given in pairs, with special importance when given to brides as wedding gifts.

It can be easy to see why the breed has been beloved in their homeland for so many centuries. Korats have one of the most beautiful coats in all the cat kingdom and are intelligent, loving lap cats who develop strong bonds with their families.

Colour

The Korat’s coat is short, glossy and fine and lies close to the body. The coat over the spine tends to ‘break’ as the cat moves. The coat colour is any shade of blue tipped with silver and the more silver tipping the better in a show cat, which should also have no tabby markings. The silver tipping develops from kittenhood to adolescence and finally reaches its full intensity at about two years of age. The nose leather, lips and paw pads are dark blue-grey or lavender.

Coat Length

Short

Age Expectancy

The Korat is quite a long-lived cat with ages of 18 and 19 not uncommon.

Weight/Height Range

Korats weigh between 2.5 – 5kgs.

Ailments

The Korat has no specific health problems and is capable of living a long and active life well into their teens. It is advisable to have an annual health check from about the age of eight or nine to check teeth and liver and kidney function.

Manx Cat 

manx cat black and white
bbc.com

Besides his lack of a tail, the Manx, who takes his name from the Isle of Man where he was first found, is noted for his rounded appearance: He has a round head, round eyes, even a rounded rear end. Don’t think that the Manx is completely tailless, either; some are they are called rumpys but others have up to three vertebrae fused at the end of the spine (rumpy risers); some have a stump of up to five vertebrae that they can whisk around; and some, known as longys, have a tail that’s longer than the stump but shorter than the typical cat tail. The Manx, which also comes in a longhaired version called the Cymric, weights 7 to 13 pounds, has a thick double coat in many colors and patterns, and lives for 13 or more years.

The Manx is gentle and playful. It’s not unusual to find that he enjoys playing fetch or carrying his toys around. He’s also smart and dexterous, capable of using his paws to get into cabinets or to open doors. Fond of human company, he will carry on a conversation in a sweet trilling voice. Some Manx give all their love to a single person while others are affectionate toward the entire family, including children.

He might lack a tail, but the Manx has a powerful rear end and is an excellent jumper, even without a natural counterweight to aid his balance. When you see him accelerate through the house and make sharp turns and quick stops, you’ll think he’s a mini sports car in the shape of a cat.

The Manx is well suited to any home with people who will love him and give his gorgeous coat a weekly combing. Keep him indoors to protect him from cars, diseases spread by other cats and attacks from other animals.

Lifespan

8 to 14 years

Colors

Manx cats come in a vast range of colors and patterns, from solids to tabbies to calicos. The pointed pattern (as seen in the Siamese) is not permitted, nor is chocolate or lavender.

Shedding

Manx cats shed, particularly during the spring and fall. Brush their double coat regularly to remove loose hair.

Health

The Manx is generally healthy, but they may suffer from some specific diseases and conditions, including:

Arthritis in the tailbone of “stumpies”

Corneal dystrophy, which develops at approximately 4 months of age

Manx syndrome, a collection of defects, which include a short spine, urinary tract problems, and difficulties with bowels and digestion. The syndrome affects approximately 20 percent of Manx and appears by 4 months of age.

Despite the lack of tail in rumpies, risers and stumpies, there are still nerve-endings there, which can make the area extremely sensitive.

Oriental Cat Breed

oriental cat breeds
thequintessentialguide.com

Cat Breed List.

The Oriental is one such hybrid, created through crosses with American and British Shorthairs, Abyssinians, Russian Blues and domestic cats. He’s described as a non pointed Siamese, meaning that his color or pattern covers his entire body, not just the face, ears, legs and tail.

The Oriental, who can be short haired or longhaired, is found in hundreds of combinations of colors and patterns. Just imagine a short haired ebony ticked torbie or a longhaired blue mackerel tabby and you will get an idea of his variety. Unlike the Siamese, the Oriental has green eyes, although white Orientals may have blue, green or odd eyes. In all other respects, the Oriental resembles the Siamese, with the same svelte, muscular body, wedge-shaped head, and large, triangular ears.

The Oriental has the same wonderful personality as the Siamese: chatty, curious, smart and loving. Like the Siamese, the Oriental has a distinctive voice and will “talk” to you about anything and everything. This is a cat who has a passion for his people and will involve himself in everything they are doing.

Orientals become extremely attached to their humans, so be prepared for a lifetime commitment. It can be very difficult for these cats to adjust to the loss of their family or favorite person. For that reason, it’s an excellent idea to socialize your Oriental kitten thoroughly to help ensure that he is familiar with lots of other people and going to new and different places. Your efforts may help prevent him from reacting negatively if he must be hospitalized, boarded or visited by a pet sitter.

When you are not available to entertain him, an Oriental will divert himself by jumping on top of the refrigerator, opening drawers, seeking out new hideaways to frustrate anyone who might be searching for him, and watching television with clear interest. He can learn to walk on leash, plays fetch with enthusiasm and is usually amenable to living with children, dogs and other cats.

If you appreciate his sculptural looks and want someone who will express endless interest in you, he may be just the cat you’ve been looking for. Keep him indoors to protect him from cars, diseases spread by other cats and attacks from other animals.

Persian Cat Breed

persian cat black
thesprucepets.com

Cat Breed List

The Persian is the most popular pedigreed cat in North America, if not the world. He first came into vogue during the Victorian era, but he existed long before then. Little is known about his early history, though. The Persian comes in two types: show and traditional. The show Persian has a round head enhanced with a thick ruff, small ears, a flat nose, big round copper eyes, a broad, short body with heavy boning atop short tree-trunk legs, and a thick, flowing plume of a tail. The traditional Persian, also known as the Doll Face, does not have the extreme features of the show Persian, and his nose is a normal length, giving him a sweet expression. Both types have a long, glamorous coat that comes in many colors and patterns, and both share the same wonderful personality.

The Persian’s sweet, gentle face turns up to gaze at his favorite people the way a pansy turns its face to the sun. He communicates with his expressive eyes and his soft, melodious voice. The Persian is the epitome of a lap cat, with a restful and undemanding personality. He loves to cuddle, but he’s also playful and curious. He’s not a jumper or climber, instead posing beautifully on a chair or sofa or playing with a favorite feather toy. Persians prefer a serene, predictable environment, but they can be adaptable enough to weather a loud, boisterous family as long as their needs are understood and met.

Most people carry an image of a white Persian in their heads, but the Persian comes in numerous striking colors and patterns. The long, flowing coat must be combed daily to prevent or remove mats and tangles. The Persian needs regular baths to stay clean and sweet-smelling. Introduce a kitten to bathing as soon as you bring him home so he will hopefully learn to accept it readily.

Russian Blue Cat Breed

russian blue cat blue eyes

Cat Breed List.

The Russian Blue is a medium to large cat with an elegant, graceful body. The head is wedged shaped and is short from the tip of the nose to the eyes. The distance from the eyes to the ears is at least as long as from the tip of nose to the eyes. The head between the ears is flat. The Russian Blue has prominent whisker pads which give the head a broad end. The forehead in profile is straight to the upper edge of the eye. The shallow concave curve from the upper eye to the tip of the nose appears almost straight and creates a distinctive angle level with the upper eye. In profile there must be no stop, break, nose bump or straight line from top of head to nose tip. The chin is strong and deep and forms a straight line with the nose tip in the same vertical plane. The ears are large and slightly pointed. They are placed so that the outer line of the ear continues the line of the upper part of the face. The skin of the ear is thin and is covered with very fine fur and in certain lights the ear is almost transparent. The eyes are set wide apart and are almond shaped. The eye colour is vivid green. The legs are long and the feet are small and neat and the cat walks as if on tip toes. The tail is long and tapering.

Colour

Although named the Russian Blue, black and white Russians do appear but these are rare and have not attracted a great following. In the most popular blue variety the coat colour is a clear even blue with a silvery sheen. The roots of the coat may be slightly paler but there must be no banding or silver tipping. The coat itself is double with a very dense undercoat and feels fine, short and soft. In texture the coat of the Russian Blue is very different from any other breed and is the truest measure of the breed. The nose leather and paw pads are blue.

Coat Length

Short

Age Expectancy

Russian Blues are quite long lived and often live well into their late teens.

Weight/Height Range

4-8kgs.

Ailments

The Russian Blue is a healthy breed and they are capable of living into their late teens. They don’t have any health problems specific to the breed but from the age of about eight it is wise to have an annual health check including teeth cleaning and blood tests for liver and kidney function.

Scottish Fold Cat Breed

scottish fold cat breed with big eyes
idntimes.com

Cat Breed List

Scottish Folds are typically intelligent, sweet-tempered, soft-spoken, and easily adaptable to new people and situations. They are loyal and tend to bond with one person in the household. While they will usually allow others to cuddle and pet them, their primary attachment becomes quickly clear as they single out their chosen human. They thrive on attention, but it must be on their own terms. Despite their devotion, they are not clingy, demanding cats and usually prefer to be near you rather than on your lap. They enjoy a good game of catch the catnip mouse now and then as well, and keep their playful side well into adulthood.

Despite being folded, the Fold’s ears are still expressive and swivel to listen, lay back in anger, and prick up when a can of food is opened. The fold in the ear can become less pronounced when the cat is upset or ill. Although some Fold family members report an increased production of wax buildup in their cats’ ears, the folded ears typically do not make the cat more susceptible to mites or ear infections. The previously reported susceptibility to deafness may be related to the fact that some early Scottish Folds were white, and white cats can be prone to a type of deafness that’s unrelated to the Fold gene.

COLOR

Any color or pattern with the exception of those showing evidence of hybridization resulting in the colors chocolate, lavender, the Himalayan pattern, or these combinations with white. Eye color appropriate to the dominant color of the cat. Odd eyed and blue eyed may appear in all bicolor and van patterns. Odd eyed will have one blue and one gold eye of equal color depth.

COAT: LONG HAIR

Medium-long to long hair length.

COAT: SHORT HAIR

Dense, plush, even. Short to medium-short in length. Soft in texture.

Full of life. Standing away from body due to density, not flat or close

lying. Coat texture may vary due to color and/or regional, seasonal

changes.

The eyes are almond shaped and set well apart. They are large and expressive. Dark surrounds emphasise the eye with circled by paler spectacles.

Turkish Van Cat Breed

turkish van cat breed
kibrispdr.org

Cat Breed List.

While you might be drawn to the Van for its fascination with water, you’ll fall in love with this cat for its other qualities. Vans are energetic, agile, and intelligent. They are extremely healthy and “get along with people swimmingly,” notes one Van owner.

You may need a few months of working out to keep up with them, however; Vans are famous for their action-packed temperaments. They are talkative, demand attention from their humans, and show great gusto at dinnertime. Vans are known for their deep attachment to their preferred people, and sometimes that makes transferring a Van from one household to another difficult. They tend to pick out one or two people in the household, usually the ones who deal with them initially, and bond with them forever.

Cat water fountains are a big hit with the Van; sometimes they’ll sit in front of the fountain and stare in fascination for hours at the trickling water. Many Turkish Van cats enjoy a dip in the pool, bathtub, sink, in a pinch even the toilet. Van owners quickly learn to keep the lid down, and must be careful about allowing unsupervised access to water. Turkish Van kittens can get into particular trouble with this fascination. Even Vans that don’t enjoy swimming are still fascinated by water, and will dunk their toys in water dishes and play in dripping faucets. Some will even learn to turn on faucets; they are very intelligent cats.

American Bobtail Cat

american bobtail cat black
wikimedia.org

Cat Breed List.

The American Bobtail has a wild look but not a wild temperament. This breed’s devoted, loving, and intelligent personality has earned them a loyal following. These confident, friendly cats bond emotionally with their families and are devoted companions that adapt quickly to most home environments.

Not as vocal as breeds like the Siamese, Bobtails nevertheless are not shy about making their feelings known. Bobtails are playful, energetic, and friendly, and possess an uncanny intelligence for Houdini-type escapes from closed rooms and fastened doors. Very people-oriented, they may solicit attention from their family by meowing or commandeering available laps.

On the cat activity scale, the Bobtail is fun-loving and frisky but not overactive. American Bobtails usually get along well with other cats and cat-friendly dogs if properly introduced. Instead of hiding under the bed, they are curious and outgoing when unfamiliar visitors come to call. If trained from an early age, they tend to be good travelers.

Lifespan

13 to 15 years

Colors

The American Bobtail’s coat can come in any pattern, including black, brown, chocolate, cinnamon, blue, lilac, fawn, red and cream, with or without white.

Shedding

The American Bobtail is a moderate shedding breed. Whether medium or long, her coat requires brushing only a couple of times a week to remove loose hair.

Angora Cat Breed

angora cat black and white
thesprucepets.com

Cat Breed List.

Angoras seem to invoke strong responses in their humans with their symmetry, intelligence, and devotion. Angoras bond with their owners completely; an Angora is not happy unless they are right in the middle of whatever you’re doing. They enjoy a good conversation and can keep up their end of the discussion with the best of them.

Angoras are good-natured, but determined. Once an Angora gets an idea into their head, you might as well just give in and spare yourself the lengthy argument. Angoras have a great need to play and enjoy playing a good-natured joke on their favorite humans every now and then. They love practicing their pounce, on scraps of paper or unsuspecting human toes, whatever catches their fancy.

When in movement, which is most of the time, Angoras seem to flow with the grace of dancers. Highly intelligent, Angoras are problem solvers that like to be in control of their surroundings; they will only tolerate being held for a few minutes before jumping down to bat at sunbeams and chase feathers. They’ll stay in the room, though, so you can watch their antics admiringly. The Angora is known for its swimming prowess, and will even plunge in for an occasional swim. Not every Turkish Angora enjoys water, but some do, with varying degrees of enthusiasm.

Birman Cat Breed

birman cat colors
thecatcare.org

Cat Breed List.

The Birman is similar to the Siamese of Thailand, but he has a stockier body, white feet, and a long, silken coat that comes in all pointed colors, including chocolate and lilac. He’s considered a medium- to large-sized cat, weighing between seven and 12 pounds.

The Birman is a calm, affectionate feline who enjoys spending time with his family — especially if you lavish lots of attention on this former temple idol. Birmans get along well with children and other pets. If you talk to him, your Birman will respond in a soft, pretty voice, but he’s not as vocal as the Thai Siamese. Although Birmans are less active than some breeds, they have a serious playful side. It’s not unusual for them to fetch or chase a ball — when they’re not curled up in your lap.

The silky coat of the Birman doesn’t shed much; twice-weekly combing keeps it beautiful. Other grooming requirements: regular nail trimming, ear cleaning, and tooth brushing. Since the Birman can develop periodontal disease, it’s important to also schedule veterinary cleanings.

The Birman looks like a pointed cat with four white feet and deep blue eyes.

Burmilla Cat Breed

petpeevesunmasked.com

Cat Breed List.

The Burmilla is a cat of medium build, thanks to the Burmese blood in its ancestry. In Asians like the Burmilla, the female is much smaller and daintier than the male. The head has good width between the ears and a gently rounded dome. The jaw is wide at the hinge tapering to a broad blunt muzzle. In profile the head forms a short wedge with a firm chin and the nose is short. The chin and the tip of the nose are in the same vertical plane. The ears are of medium size with a rounded tip. They are set so as to continue the angle of the face and are slightly tilted forward. The eyes are set well apart and are full and expressive. The eyes may be any colour from gold through to green. The body is firm and muscular with a strong straight back. The legs are of medium length and the hind legs are a little longer than the front. The paws are oval and the tail is medium to long, tapering slightly to a rounded tip.

The Burmilla is rarely seen. In Britain, it is still an experimental breed, and it is not yet accepted by the major registries in the U.S.

Cornish Rex Cat

Cat Breed List.

The Cornish Rex isn’t the victim of a hair stylist experimenting with permanent wave solution. His soft, short, wavy coat is the product of a spontaneous natural mutation, a not uncommon occurrence in the world of cats. The first known Cornish Rex, named for his coat’s resemblance to that of a rex rabbit, made his appearance in Cornwall in 1950. It’s not only his coat that distinguishes the Cornish Rex. He has an egg-shaped head topped with large ears, big eyes, curly whiskers, and unusually long hind legs.

You just know that a cat who looks like this has a sense of humor, and you can expect that he will exercise it at your expense. The Cornish Rex is a highly intelligent, highly active cat who loves to be involved in everything you’re doing: he will climb to the highest point in the house to survey his domain, steal food to fuel his antics, and play fetch — anything, really, that will bring him attention and applause. He can learn just about anything you can teach, although you may find that he is a better trainer of you than you are of him. He’s always on the go, so don’t think that you are acquiring a sweet, quiet lap sitter when you bring the Rex home. This is a cat who speaks his mind. He might not speak English, but he definitely knows how to get his point across with a glance, gesture, or vocal riposte.

With his playful, outgoing nature, the Cornish Rex is a good choice for families with children, other pets, or frequent guests. He is a good traveler and makes an excellent therapy cat.

You may hear that the Cornish Rex coat is hypoallergenic because of its texture, but that is not correct. Allergies are not caused by a particular coat type but by dander, the dead skin cells that are shed by all cats (and people, for that matter). There is no scientific evidence that any breed or crossbreed is more or less allergenic than any other cat. Some people with allergies react less severely to particular cats, but no reputable breeder will guarantee that her cats are hypoallergenic.

The Cornish Rex is well suited to any home with people who will love him, play with him and give him the attention he seeks. Keep him indoors to protect him from sunburn, cars, diseases spread by other cats, and attacks from other animals.

The Cornish Rex is an athletic cat and can appear inexhaustible in her love of running, jumping and playing.

Havana Cat Breed

Cat Breed List.

More distinctive than the muzzle, ears, or mink-like coat is the Havana Brown’s personality. Although still quite rare, Havanas have built an enthusiastic following. Havana Browns are affectionate, gentle, highly intelligent, and, unlike their Siamese compatriots, quiet. They are remarkably adaptable and agreeable cats, and adjust to almost any situation with poise and confidence. Havanas must have human interaction if they are to live happy, healthy lives. They crave attention from their human companions and are not content unless they can be by your side, helping you with your household tasks. Havanas love to reach out and touch their favorite humans; they often nudge their human friends with an out-stretched paw as if asking for attention. Fetch is a favorite Havana game, and they can often be found carrying toys and stray objects around in their mouths. If you’ve misplaced a sock or some other small, easily carried object, check your Havana’s cat bed. You might find that it has magically found its way there.

The Havana Brown is a very rare breed. If a list of endangered cat breeds existed, the Havana Brown would probably be at the top.

LaPerm Long Hair Cat

Cat Breed List.

The LaPerm looks as if he stuck his paw in a light socket and got a shock, but his curly coat is the result of a natural genetic mutation, not at all unusual in the world of cats. The LaPerm may be born bald or short haired, with his wavy or ringleted coat coming in at maturity. The coat comes in any color or pattern but is most often seen in tortoiseshell, tabby, or red. It may be short or long and covers the entire body, right down to the curly tail. Not all of the cats develop a curly coat, however. Some are born with a straight coat and keep it throughout their lives. If you want to be sure your LaPerm has curls, you may want to seek out one whose mature coat has already come in.

This is a medium-size cat who weighs 5 to 10 pounds and reaches maturity at two to three years of age.

The LaPerm is a typical cat with an inquisitive nature, love of heights, and desire to be involved in everything his people are doing. He is fond of riding on shoulders or will climb to the top of his cat tree so he can supervise whatever is going on. Don’t be surprised if you see him using his paws to open things or simply to pat your face to get your attention. He is highly active, but if he sees an opportunity to sit in your lap and be petted, he will take it.

If the LaPerm is well socialized as a kitten, he will be happy to meet and interact with your guests. He is a good choice for families with older children who will treat him respectfully, but toddlers should be supervised so they don’t pull his curls. He is also perfectly capable of getting along with cat-friendly dogs.

The coat is easy to groom. He usually doesn’t shed much, but occasionally the LaPerm may go through a heavy shed, after which his coat comes in thicker than before. The only other grooming he needs is regular nail trimming and ear cleaning.

You may hear that the LaPerm coat is hypoallergenic because it is curly, but that is not correct. Allergies are caused not by a particular coat type but by dander, the dead skin cells that are shed by all cats (and people, for that matter). There is no scientific evidence that any breed or crossbreed is more or less allergenic than any other cat. Some people with allergies react less severely to particular cats, but no reputable breeder will guarantee that her cats are hypoallergenic.

The LaPerm is well suited to any home with people who will love him and give his unusual coat a weekly combing. Keep him indoors to protect him from cars, diseases spread by other cats, and attacks from other animals.
