Cat Breeds

Cornish Rex Cat

A Cornish Rex is a spectacular breed. The coat of a Cornish Rex is extremely fine and wavy, and it almost does not shed. These are particularly affectionate cats with an angelic disposition.

British Shorthair Cats

The British Shorthair breed is one of the largest breeds of cats in the world, and probably the oldest breed of British feline. The ancestors of this cat date back to the time of the Romans in England who imported them from their native Rome. This breed was highly prized for its sheer strength, endurance and highly successful hunting skills. Equally important is the tranquil temperament and loyalty to humans which are an intrinsic part of this breed’s character.

Maine Coon

As the name indicates, this breed of cat originates in the United State of America, in the Northeastern state of Maine. Given the enormous size of this cat, people may think they see the hand of humans in breeding the large size into this giant. In point of fact, this breed evolved naturally and humans played no role whatsoever in its development.

Persian cats

Silver Persian Cat

These very popular and beautiful cats can be traced back to as early as 1684 BC although their precise geographical origin is a mystery. Almost everyone would recognize a Persian cat with its beautiful long flowing coat and sweet gentle nature, along with huge eyes and squashed in nose.

Petersburg Sphynx – Peterbald

The basic distinction from all other breeds is that these cats adore people. The saying “I am a cat and I walk wherever I want” is not for them; a better one is “I am where you you are.”

This pet is your companion. It needs being talked to and communicated with. You will be surprised how intelligent and incredibly understanding of your moods they can be. The most interesting fact about these felines is that if there is only one Peterbald at home, it will identify itself with the surrounding environment, e.i. if it lives under one roof with a dog it will start considering itself a dog and if it lives surrounded by people it will think of itself as of a human being.
