2020 is almost coming to an end (thank god!), so we wanted to make a list of our favorite cat breeds this year. Cats exist in different shapes and breeds, but we love all of them! It you want to add a new cat to your family, don’t forget you can find great cats at a shelter or rescue. Let’s take a look at our top-5!
- Ragdoll Cat
Some Ragdolls look like long-haired Siamese cats with their pointed color patterns. Their silky, white-colored fur and blue eyes make them extra cute! It’s believed the name comes from the original breeding stocks that went limp and relaxed when they were picked up, much like a rag doll. Ragdolls have super sweet, cuddly personalities that make them a favorite among families and cat lovers.
- Siamese Cat
Who doesn’t know the singing Siamese cats from the animated Disney Film “Lady and the Tramp”? We love Siamese kittens! This breed originated in Thailand and is formerly known as Siam. This usually very vocal kitty sheds much less than other cat breeds. Finding a lot less hair in the home really helps those people who are sensitive to feline allergens to not develop symptoms.
- Maine Coon
Did you know these felines are the official state cat of Maine? The Maine Coon is easy to recognize and is the largest domesticated cat breed. It’s known for their large stature and thick fur coats. Besides that, they are excellent hunters. Maine Coons are still one of the most popular cat breeds.
- British Shorthair
There are a lot of British cat breeds, but the British Shorthair is probably the most well-known. Their coats come in a variety of colors, but the silvery gray coat is common among cats of this breed. That particular type is called the British Blue. As for their eye colors, they range from gold to copper to blue-green.
- Bengal Cat
This is our personal favorite! Bengals are domesticated cats, but look like they belong in the jungle. Their leopard-like spots or rosettes give them a wild look, something they have inherited from their wildcat ancestors. They are typically very intelligent, energetic, confident, and alert. Just like they’d need to be to survive in the jungle!
