2 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.

Love this breed, they are called ragdolls because they go all floppy when you hold them. even though my cat doesn't let me hold him at all I know lot of you don't like them but honestly I don't know how anyone can't like this breed

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

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

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!

3 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.

Siamese are always a breeze!

We are the Siameses! - ElSherlock

We own two old-style Siamese and they are the sweetest cats in the world. Our female brings us ''prey'' which is usually socks or hand towels. The male purrs very loudly and has a very regal meow. The female is very demanding of our attention and loves to sleep on our laps. We have had many cats in our lives, so we can say without a doubt that Siamese cats are THE BEST.

There little blue eyes stare into my soul

6 Norwegian Forest Cat

They are badass

My grandma has a cat (From Norway) and it is and orange-brown, fat by fur cat. The cat is named LubLub. Double Lub or DLub for short was scared of me at first but after I brushed her and pet her she would look at me and meow at me. Other people were in the room and she would stare at me, only me. She never bit me or scratched me thankfully. But I do leave the house to go home and I miss her. I would love to keep her because my mother and I are cat lovers but my dad doesn’t like taking care of them.

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!

7 Tabby

I don't really like tabbies. THE ARE NOT A BREED though they are very pretty

Not a breed, but rather a pattern that can occur in almost any breed. I love the tabby pattern. It is advantageous for cats when they are hunting.

I love tabby cats because they come in lots of different colors! They also have the cutest patterns!


I love them!

Is it just me or are tuxedo cats sweeter than other cats.

9 Bombay

My cat Loli is really sweet yet shy around others. She has gotten to be super spoiled over the years but I love her. Also, she is 11 years old, if you met her, you wouldn't know a thing.

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

Those eyes. That fur! !

17 Ocicat Ocicat The Ocicat is an all-domestic breed of cat which resembles a wild cat but has no wild DNA in its gene pool.
18 Munchkin

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

So so so so so so so cute!

19 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 love these cats so cute meow

I have a Himalayan. Actually two

Simply so loving and loyal

22 Toyger

I'm dying of adorableness aw - RealUprising

Go to the video called "Terrified cat thrown into washing machine by evil kids" and give Mother Of Dragons (in the comment section) a piece of your mind because he can't take opinions an I hate people who can't take opinions. And Florida Guy, superskiier50, RaZeRBLaDez and more can die slowly. They're commenters of the same video.

WHY IS THIS BREED NOT ON THE LIST! It should at least be in the top 5! This cat is amazing, with its STRIPY fur, exactly like a tiger. They are very expensive, but worth every penny. Toyer... Tiger... It's a play on words. Tigerheart and Tigerclaw/star in Warrior cats should have been a Toyger... Even though toygers are kittypets and bred to look like that...

27 American Wirehair

My American Wirehair is simply brilliant! He loves to relax with you and is a loyal companion, and I love him, despite having him yell at 3am, demanding food. Oh, and he never stops eating, and will eat almost anything. Has an appetite similar to Homer Simpson or Man V. Food. But when he comes in to sit on your bed and purr you to sleep, all is forgiven.

29 Devon Rex Devon Rex The Devon Rex is a breed of intelligent, short-haired cat that emerged in England during the 1960s. They are known for their slender bodies, wavy coat, and large ears.

32 Siberian Siberian The Siberian is a landrace variety of domestic cat, present in Russia for centuries, and more recently developed as a formal breed, with standards promulgated since the late 1980s.

What's unique about the siberian is that they produce less 'Fel d 1' or the antigenic protein then most cats, so if you do suffer from allergies to cats. You may be able to live with a siberian because they make less of this protein. While no cat is hypoallergenic, researchers study why the siberian cat produces less of the protein to trigger allergies in humans. - RealUprising

My Siberian has Cerebellar Hypoplasia, so she weebles and wobbles. She is amazing, gentle, kind, and wonderful. If you've read Warrior Cats, she's like Briarlight. Has a condition, but she doesn't let it slow her down! - Swiftdawn

The sweetest most loving cat by far. Definitely a good choice if you have cat allergies and want a dog cat.

How the heck people? These cats are amazing!

These are good cats! I have one, and she's sleeping by me now!

37 Dragon Li

Personally, I had an EXTREMELY hard time with trying to decide which breed I should vote for... Don't judge, I just love cats so much! But for now, I'm just going to go with the dragon li because my aunt has one (I'm only 12 by the way), and she is so cute and sweet!

Amazing Cat! The best cat I have ever seen! But it is so expensive!

38 Sokoke

There is no such thing as a Tyger! Its Toyger!

40 Turkish Van

It's a amazing cat breed It like swimming and water and it have a silky fur so IT is a amazing cat breed.

I was crushed when I saw this incredible breed was not on the list! This amazing silky cat (which loves swimming and water) is Very Friendly and Sociable! Kinda like a dog/cat! This breed of cat is RiverClan all the way through. (Go warriors! )

41 British Shorthair British Shorthair The British Shorthair is the pedigreed version of the traditional British domestic cat, with a distinctively chunky body, dense coat and broad face.

Cute - ElSherlock

I have two British Shorthair kittens 12months and 5months old. They are very active and playful, fiercely loyal and not lap cats. They will sit near you and not ask for affection, but once in a while they will siddle up to you for a playful pet and like their chins and underside of face to be stroked. They are healthy, and strong cats who live to a good old age 12-15 years.

I have a British short hair named shadow he is loyal trustworthy cute and a great friend he waits door waiting for to get home he sleeps on my bed when I'm home sick and he plays fetch with ping pong balls.

That pic is so cute!

43 Cornish Rex Cornish Rex A Cornish Rex is a breed of domestic cat. The Cornish Rex has no hair except for down. Most breeds of cat have three different types of hair in their coats: the outer fur or "guard hairs", which is about 5 cm long in shorthairs and 10 cm+ long in longhairs; a middle layer called the "awn hair"; and more.

Fast, affectionate, athletic with classic Egyptian cat looks

44 Abyssinian Abyssinian The Abyssinian is a breed of domestic short-haired cat with a distinctive "ticked" tabby coat, in which individual hairs are banded with different colors.

I'm getting an Abyssinian, I saw one at this animal shelter I volunteer at I saw this little Abyssinian that kept meowing and looking at me hopefully. We are adopting her tomorrow! - Swiftdawn

Long, lean, and athletic, the Abyssinian looks like it stepped out of the wild. Don't be fooled by their regal appearance, however, the Abys are super friendly. As an active breed, a human willing to spend a lot of time in interactive play is at the top of their must-haves. - Kittylicious

Beautiful! Love the orange fur! - Hermione_Granger220

They look striking and beautiful at the same time. What I've heard from most people, their personality gets good reception.
