Top Ten Best Cat Breeds

The Top Ten

1 Ragdoll Ragdoll The Ragdoll is a cat breed with blue eyes and a distinct colorpoint coat. It is a large and muscular semi-longhair cat with a soft and silky coat.

We have two and they are awesome. Smart, affectionate, easy to take care of and playful.

Ragdoll cats are the best cats ever! Though they only choose one owner, unlike a dog who likes everyone. I know a ragdoll kitty who is the best!

They are super friendly with kids and dogs, and they are gentle, quite, friendly

Ragdolls are absolutely the best! - chickyhannah

2 Siamese Siamese The Siamese cat is one of the first distinctly recognized breeds of Asian cat. Derived from the rtgs: wichianmat landrace, one of several varieties of cat native to Thailand, the Siamese became one of the most popular breeds in Europe and North America in the 20th century.

My Siamese is the sweetest, spoiled brat their is. Love cuddles( on her own terms ) meows with the worst voice EVER and only accidentally scratches( whenever she is scared and needs to get away ) she bites my hand rarely, but when she does you can't even feel it.

Cute little creatures! I have one named sam! Shes so aggressive and cute at the same time!

Siamese cats are anti-social. They bite and scratch people with their sharp-as-knife claws. I don't like Siamese cats, they are overrated

I hate Siamese. Here are the reasons:
1. They are less - talkative and bossy.
2. They are angry, they scratch humans all the times.
3. They think their owners must do whatever they say. (Just gets on my nerves)
4. They are way too easy - scared.
5. They hate humans.
Don't believe me? Prove:
I read Matt Haig's To Be A Cat. The main bad character was a SIAMESE. She was SO stupid. .

3 Persian Persian

Cute hairy creatures they are... You'd love to have one of them in your company as a pet.

I suppose they are pretty cute... but they are bred to look like that to entertain mankind! Because of there squished face, they are more prone to diseases than other cats.

There really sweet cats if your looking for a cat you should definitely get a Persian

There cute fat and lazy so a perfect pet

4 Maine Coon Maine Coon

This breed of cat is huge! They are not a lap kind of cat which is fine by me. Anyway, I love Maine coons because I love Harry Potter, and Filch's cat was a Maine Coon

So so SO lovable! They aren't really lap cats but they love attention and they love to come up and help you type on your keyboard! (aka what mine is doing now)

Me and my friend voted for this because we love the fluffy face! So cute

BEST.CAT.EVER! I have two and they are both so sweet!

5 Tabby

I have a wonderful tabby named Lilly, a gray tabby named Socks, and a crazy, out-of-her-mind Calico. Lilly is friendly, playful, pretty, and can climb ladders! TABBY ALL THE WAY!

A tabby is a coat type not a breed. You're probably thinking of a cat like an American Shorthair or another calm breed. - RiverClanRocks

You get a tabby. You flip a coin, if heads, your tabby is nice. If tails, your tabby is mean. - Imreallyboredrightnow

Ugh, this is actually annoying and I'm not even joking. 'Tabby' is a type of PATTERN you can find in a cat, not a breed. Please educate yourself.

6 Russian Blue Russian Blue The Russian Blue is a cat breed that comes in colors varying from a light shimmering silver to a darker, slate grey.

Dog in a beautiful an unique cat suit. Extremely intelligent, quiet, except when they want something, then a huge distinct vocabulary. They like to necklace their humans, and are extremely loyal to their people.

I loved my old Russian Blue! They have a great personality! Should be higher! - funnyuser

! Russian Blue looks like Bluestar. This is why my aunt has a Russian blue

7 Bombay

Black cats are absolutely beautiful and underrated whoever thinks they are bad luck should go die in hell - CatsOMG

Black cats are awesome like shiny umbreon

My cat may be a tutle shell cat and may be part maincoon but I gotta love bombays! For 1 they look like a panther wich is my fave wild cat breed. For 2 they are easy to train infact they are highly intelligent and you can train them to do tricks! Fun right? 3 they have beautiful big yellow eyes that look SO PRETTY! 4 their black coats shine in the sun. 5 they are more dog friendly then peapol friendly wich is good incase you have dogs. But don't get me wrong out of five stars they are 5 stars with dogs and 4 stars with humans so its not like their a SUPER mean breed! Plus you barely see them making your cat a one of a kind in your neighborhood! This is definitely my dream cat and I hope to get one in the future! Hey but what can I say I'm a crazy cat lady and a cat dork! I read warriors cat series and ravenpaw and blue star are my favorites plus I love black cats! 1 more advantage! If you beleave in black cat bad luck then you can put one across of the walk way of somone you dislike ...more

9 American Shorthair American Shorthair The American Shorthair is a breed of domestic cat believed to be descended from European cats brought to North America by early settlers to protect valuable cargo from mice and rats.

I've had ten in my life (at my age I guess that's a lot) and they've all been incredibly friendly. Can't say a bad thing about them. - BKAllmighty

Simple, cool-looking, soft, and very friendly! It's my dream cat!

I've had eight and lets just say I'm under 12. But I love my kitties! They are just your normal cat friendly and cuddly. They come in many different variations there are tabbys, plain coated, etc.

I will kill these people they do not put this at no. 1

15 Munchkin

I love munchkins how are they at 49 they are just like American shorthairs just they have little cute tiny legs. - Ku

The Munchkin deserves to be in the top tens. I own one, and he is one of the sweetest cats you'll ever see. Despite Munchkin's short legs, they can actually jump pretty high, and run really fast. It's amazing!

Munchkin cats are just like any cute, well-trained and adorable cat. Plus, they have short legs due to a genetic mutation, but that makes them even more awesome and interesting!

These cats are adorable with their cute little tiny legs. - CatsOMG

16 Egyptian Mau Egyptian Mau Egyptian Maus are a small- to medium-sized short-haired cat breed. Along with the Bahraini Dilmun cat, they are one of the few naturally spotted breeds of domesticated cat.

Very loving and affectionate cat with great personalities

I love their speed and wild look to them. - Gabriola

Egyptian maus are the best types of cats! - splatter22

I love them

17 Tuxedo Cat

Just like with Tabby, Tuxedo markings are a coat pattern, not a breed. There are no pedigreed cats with these markings, which can be seen in domestic shorthairs.

I have a tuxedo and he thinks he is a human and not a cat and he like to sit on the drive way and attack dogs. - Ilyas678

Tuxedo is a type of fur coloring not a breed of cat - groveofcats

I have two tuxedo cats and they are so cute.They don't make a mess and they love to be petted. I find both of them way adorable and I even LOVE them WAY BETTER than my other cat which is a Maine Coon.

19 Burmese Burmese

I Love Burmese there just a brown Siamese

Burmese should be on #1! Who would put it here?!?!?

I've owned a few Burmese and they are great companions. - striker75

I love Burmese they are so cute

20 Norwegian Forest Cat

These are the cutest ever. They would probably be some of the most popular cat breeds these days if it weren't for the 2nd world war that nearly wiped them out.

I love love LOVE Norwegian Forest Cats! SOOO ADORABLE!

Norwegian Forest Cats, or Norwegies for short, are SOOO cute! Just look up "Norwegian Forest Cats in the snow" and your heart will melt. Norwegies are so big and fluffy! I was shocked and a little disappointed that the beloved Norwegian Forest Cat was not on here.

I had one once. She was nice, cute and extremly beautyful!
