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

IT'S GRUMPY CAT! LMFAO - maloneyscott

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.

I love siamese cats so much! They're so pretty and much nicer than people think they are. Even though my cat acts like a little princess, she really nice. She sit on my lap when I'm sitting in bed on on the couch, and likes to sit next to me when I'm eating.

My kitten Bluebell (Who is a Siamese with a stockier build) is the sweetest kitten in the world. She is energetic, loves to play, and cuddle! Siamese rule!

Siamese are awesome

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.

We have a Persian she is grey and the most adorable cat ever. She is 56 in cat years. So they live for a long time.

All I need to say and I quote 'Mr Tinkles, ah'.

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

I'm Anita.

5 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

It looks like from the book, Bluestar's Prophecy. Anyone read it yet?

6 Tabby

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

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!

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

Tabby isn’t a breed. It’s a fur pattern, like tortoiseshell, calico, or colorpoint. Maine Coons are usually tabbies, and American Shorthairs can be, as can several different cat breeds. But again, tabby is a fur pattern, not a breed. - Hermione_Granger220

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

8 Scottish Fold

Them is so cute with there's ears

They look so cute! - stellalee

They are so cute with the folded ears that they are popular in cat memes - CatsOMG

9 Turkish Angora Turkish Angora The Turkish Angora is a breed of domestic cat. Turkish Angoras are one of the ancient, natural breeds of cat, having originated in central Turkey, in the Ankara region.
10 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.

The Contenders

11 Sphynx Sphynx The Sphynx is a breed of cat developed through selective breeding starting in the 1960s, known for its lack of a coat, though it is not truly hairless.

Sphynx cats are awesome

I have a cat like this his name is butters

This one's eyes are just beautiful.

There so unique and so beautiful

12 Bengal Bengal The Bengal is a domestic cat breed developed to look like exotic jungle cats such as leopards, ocelots, margays and clouded leopards.

Very smart and active pets! Loving and loyal. They talk to you if you talk to them, and are easily trained!

they are so cute they look like little tigers

Bengals RULE! So cute I have 2 myself, 1 snow and 1 gold both loving little girls! So curious and easily trained! And my snow is such a little trouble maker!

They are amazing, a little wild, but great cuddlers. I have three, Ella/Ellie, Milo/MiMi, and Laya. They are wonderful! - Swiftdawn

13 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

If I made this list it would be
1. Persian
2. Munchkin
3. Main coon
4. Ural Rex
735 918 253. Sphinx (I hate them)

14 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.

These are a very nice breed of cat who would sit down and let you pet it. I have a Calico/Shorthair Bree’s named Buttercup who’s always been very sweet.

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

Egyptian maus are the best types of cats! - splatter22

Egyptian maus are the most beautiful of cats. Their kittens are extremely cute! Egyptian maus have amazing patterns on their fur.

I love them

17 Toyger

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...

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.

CUTE

SO COOL!
SO CUTE!
SO AWESOME!
THE MOST AMAZINGLY, AWESOMELY, COOL, CUTE, CAT EVER!

18 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

Tuxedo isn’t a breed. It’s a fur pattern, like tabbies, calicoes, and tortoiseshells. - Hermione_Granger220

They are super friendly and ENORMOUS! They act like dogs and love to play with dogs, too. They cost many thousand dollars, but they're worth every penny! - Splashstorm

So beautiful and look so much like their wild ancestors!

Coolest cat EVER. By far the tallest cat I have seen

My cat Laya is a Savannah and Bengal mix, she is wild-ish, but loves me and my family (including my two other cats) - Swiftdawn

22 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.

Definitely the best. big fluffy hairy cute and nice. What else do you want from a cat? - pouria_mt

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.

23 The Selkirk Rex
24 Burmese Burmese

I have a Burmese. Burmese are literally a dog in a cats body. Loyal, affectionate, intelligent, easy to train, beautiful, yep, these cats are the best. I have one and I love her more than anything else in my life. She's the most perfect little thing ever.

I Love Burmese there just a brown Siamese

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

They're like dogs. My Burmese cross knows tricks!

25 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.

26 Japanese Bobtail Japanese Bobtail
27 Manx Cat Manx Cat

Take this off of the list. There weird. I have a Manx cat and its mean.

I like them

28 Havana Brown
29 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!

30 Korat Korat

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

31 Tyger Cat

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

32 Birman

The nicest cat breed you'll ever meet. Also the Cutest. - BryanM

Loving intelligent breed, quite vocal fairly expensive £500+ more for a breeding cat, worth every penny, but as I am a cat freak I love all breeds,

33 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.

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! - lovefrombadlands

34 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! )

35 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.

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!

They are cute and hypoallergenic!

Rare playful dog cats

36 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.

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

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

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

Beautiful! Love the orange fur! - Hermione_Granger220
