3. Bombay


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.

Yay! I knew my baby Whisper would be on this list! They're SO cute as kittens and she is an absolute ANGEL. Though she doesn't normally come on command lol. And my ragdoll x persian Mattie wouldn't hurt a fly! I also have a BBS Dottie who only likes coochies in bed in the morning and Merci my Norwegian forest is just like a dog!

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

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.

Their fur colors are what makes them so eye-catching, and the science behind it is even more interesting. The dark-colored markings make them a charming cat. - AbsolutelyDisgusting

I love there bright blue eyes

My future pet if I don't have a parrot!

Cute blue eyes

4 Persian Persian

I love Persians especially exotic persian

This is as close to a Himalayian cat that I can get to. (If you don't know what a Himalayian cat breed is then up pictures of them)

So cute! - ArianaMarvelHPVine456

Cutest ever

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.

Super sad because I have spent weeks trying to get a Russian Blue kitten and suddenly the policies change for the house, so no cat for me. he's the cutest cat ever and he looks amazing, so now I am extremely pissed off

Please be 3

Friendly cat - ElSherlock

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.

6 Norwegian Forest Cat

They are badass

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.

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.

I love love LOVE Norwegian Forest Cats! SOOO ADORABLE!

7 Tuxedo Cat

There was this tuxedo cat kitten named Cosmo at a cat cafe, and she started licking my track pants and biting them. She thinks I was another kitten

I have a tuxedo cat named Minnie. She is the sweetest cat I've ever had (also the only cat I've ever had) - FuffleyandPeetah

8 Tabby

Even though they are not technically a breed, I love tabbies! My cat Rusty is one!

So cute! - ArianaMarvelHPVine456

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.

9 Bombay

They are so sweet and tiny compared to maine coons.

I love these kitties!

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

I love bald cats

My mom got one in April 8 or 7 2019

My mom Erica wants one

Beautiful - ElSherlock

13 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.

15 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.
16 Bengal Bengal The Bengal is a domestic cat breed developed to look like exotic jungle cats such as leopards, ocelots, margays and clouded leopards.

My cat Ella is a Bengal! Bengals are beautiful, cute, funny, playful, intelligent, lovable, sweet, and big snuggle bugs! The best by far.

They should be number 1 because they are cute and have a funny personality and are AMAZING awesome PLAYFUL LOVABLE AND THE BEST

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

17 Somali Somali

They have a very bushy tail and a very bushy ruff and can come in 4+ different colours. - RealUprising

Those eyes. That fur! !

18 Munchkin

Cute! Usually ginger striped, with amber eyes and short, stubby legs with soft paws, these kitties are sweet, and though they don’t seem able to, they can run fast and leap high despite their leg-shortness

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

19 Savannah Savannah

Dude, what is with the ears? - Raichu

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

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

So beautiful and look so much like their wild ancestors!

20 Himalayan

I have a Himalayan. Actually two

Simply so loving and loyal

21 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...

23 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.

Steamed milq

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.

24 The Selkirk Rex
25 Manx Cat Manx Cat

The cutest, I used to have one, she was a darling.

I love manx's

There so nice one of my Manx cat sat on my lap while I was playing the PlayStation and another time I was reading the news paper and he sat on it while I was reading it to get attention so smart!

There so nice they sit on your lap every day I say manx's should be first I say vote a vote for manx's!

26 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.

27 Havana Brown

These cats are the most friendly, I have a Havana Brown and despite the breeds typical sleek appearance, this cat is quite tubby, and he is the best family cat ever

33 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

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

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

How the heck people? These cats are amazing!

34 Birman

So. Damn. Cute. I. Need. A. Birman. Before. I. Die. Of. Adorableness! Awww!

RealUprising died of adorableness and was looking at birmans - RealUprising

They're violent at times, but usually so cute and cuddly :3

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!

37 Turkish Van

I've met some and they are very affectionate.

42 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.

They are the best! They should be number 1!

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.

43 European Shorthair

Misss1 is stupid and should get slapped in the face. HARD.

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

46 Singapura Singapura The Singapura is one of the smallest breeds of cats, noted for its large eyes and ears, brown ticked coat and blunt tail.

CUTE, CUTE, CUTE?! Those little cats warm my heart! Anyone else have one?

Those eyes though

The tiniest of all cat breeds, Singapuras are known as "pesky little people cats". They are active, playful, and love being around their humans.

47 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.

48 Burmilla

What an elegant cat! So pretty! - Hermione_Granger220

I have a kitten, he was stray, I assume he is at least related to an Oriental Shorthair. He is SO sweet! His name is Henry, he is super playful and LOVES food!

I have one named Margo and she is the sweetest cat ever! She has a funny personality and is so stinkin adorable >w<
