Top 10 Best Cat Breeds

The Top Ten
1 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.

So pretty! I don't have a cat, but I love cats! Ragdolls don't have a pretty name, but they are super pretty! Their faces are kind of flat, but they're still really pretty. Especially their fur!

I own one. Sweetest cats ever! They never fail to make you laugh every day. Despite how expensive they can be, they are definitely one of the best breeds out there, especially for families, as they tend to be mostly all bark (or meow) and no bite.

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!

2 Maine Coon

I really love Maine Coons. They are so beautiful, affectionate, loving, and altogether cuddly. I had a Maine Coon cat when I was growing up. Ever since he was a kitten, his name was Whiskers, and I loved him so much. I still have his pictures.

Beautiful type of cat. To be honest, every cat is beautiful, but this one stands out somehow. They are cuddly and affectionate. Not to mention they're huge! They remind me of powerful tigers, and that's probably one of the main things I like about them. They are just beautiful!

3 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.

We had two Applehead Siamese cats, a male and a female. Both were so loving and intelligent, active into their older years, and had no instinct to kill small animals. They were incredibly intimate too, bonding with us more closely than any animal we've ever had.

Our other mixed-breed cats are so plain and uninterested in us, not very affectionate compared to our loving Siamese cats. Our Siamese were the ultimate lap cats and would sleep with us at night, purring and cuddling with us and each other. They were very vocal too. We'd even have full-fledged conversations with them.

In conclusion, Siamese cats are the best, most loving, most affectionate, and most emotionally intelligent cat breed. I will never love any other animal as much as I do Applehead Siamese cats.

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

I recently bought a Russian Blue cross kitten, and they are simply amazing. They are full of energy, friendly, great for people who have allergies, and their eyes are insane. This is my first time owning a cat, and I have zero regrets.

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

Calm, playful, and just plain adorable. They're one of the best family cats out there. Due to their patient and loving demeanor, they don't mind being played with by kids or the loud noises children make.

5 Persian

Persian cats are really beautiful, wonderful cats. They are sweet, kind, and friendly. This particular breed reminds me of snowshoe hares, but these cats are adorable.

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

We have a Persian. She is gray and the most adorable cat ever. She is 56 in cat years, so they live for a long time.

6 Norwegian Forest Cat

I used to have a Norwegian Forest cat named Olivia. We had her before I was born. Just last year, she got some kind of cancer, and since it was in her face, we had to put her to sleep. I miss her a lot, but I know I will see her again.

My grandma has a cat from Norway, and it is an orange-brown, fluffy cat named LubLub. Double Lub or DLub for short was scared of me at first, but after I brushed and petted her, she would look at me and meow. Other people were in the room, and she would stare at me, only me. She never bit 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.

7 Scottish Fold Scottish Fold is a breed of domestic cat with a natural dominant gene mutation that affects cartilage throughout the body, causing the ears to "fold".

The folds in their ears are so absolutely cute!

8 Munchkin

The Munchkin deserves to be in the top ten. I own one, and he is one of the sweetest cats you'll ever see. Despite Munchkins' 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!

I love them! I told my mom we need a Dachshund and a Munchkin, wiener dog, and wiener cat.

9 Bombay The Bombay is a sleek black cat that was bred with American Shorthair and Burmese cats. It was created by the breeder Nikki Horner in an attempt to make it similar to panthers.

My cat may be a tortoiseshell and part Maine Coon, but I love Bombays! First, they look like a panther, my favorite wild cat breed. Second, they are easy to train and highly intelligent, so you can teach them tricks. Fun, right? Third, they have beautiful big yellow eyes that look so pretty! Fourth, their black coats shine in the sun. Fifth, they are more dog-friendly than people-friendly, which is great if you have dogs.

Don't get me wrong. They are five stars with dogs and four stars with humans, so it's not like they are a super mean breed! Plus, you rarely see them, making your cat one of a kind in your neighborhood. This is definitely my dream cat, and I hope to get one in the future.

Hey, what can I say? I'm a crazy cat lady and a cat dork! I read the Warriors cat series, and Ravenpaw and Bluestar are my favorites. Plus, I love black cats! One more advantage: if you believe in black cat bad luck, you can put one across the walkway of someone you dislike to give them bad luck. Awesome, right? So, I highly recommend getting one! Unless you're allergic to cat fur, then get a Devon Rex or a Sphinx!

10 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.

The Sphynx cat is the cutest breed I've ever had! I had one called Stella. She was so cute! At night, she meowed at my door, but I didn't mind. I let her in. She purred and snuggled in with me. Extremely cute! Her skin was so warm!

Too bad we had her for only three weeks because we found out my mom had kitten allergies. She went to a nicer family with other cats: a tuxedo, Oscar, and another Sphynx, Gabi.

Have a Sphynx instead of other breeds. Cats don't care, but Sphynx always wait and wait for you to come home. Sphynx have dog brains. Incredible breed!

Sphynx cats do not deserve to be hated just because of their look. They may be naked, but that doesn't mean they are ugly.

The Contenders
11 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.

My cat Toki is an Egyptian Mau, Japanese Bobtail mix, and he is very shy and playful. He loves catching mice.

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

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

This breed of cats reminds me of a leopard or a small tiger. These cats are very family-friendly, lovable, and gorgeous. I am a big cat lover. This breed of cat is my number one favorite, along with the Maine Coon, of course.

Bengals rule! So cute. I have two myself, one snow and one gold. Both are loving little girls, curious, and easily trained! My snow Bengal is such a little troublemaker!

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

13 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.

Cute cat that looks very fancy!

14 Snowshoe

Snowshoe cats are adorable! I love their paws!

15 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 Himalayan
17 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. Siberians are average sized cats, and are considered hypoallergenic.

What's unique about the Siberian is that they produce less Fel d 1, the antigenic protein, than most cats. So, if you 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 that triggers allergies in humans.

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

How the heck, people? These cats are amazing!

18 Savannah

They are super friendly and enormous! They act like dogs and love to play with dogs, too. They cost many thousands of dollars, but they're worth every penny!

So beautiful and look so much like their wild ancestors!

19 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.

These are a very nice breed of cat who will sit down and let you pet them. I have a calico/Shorthair breed named Buttercup who's always been very sweet.

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.

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

20 Somali A breed of domestic cat that originated from the longhaired variant of the Abyssinian, the Somali is characterized by its bushy tail and tufted ears. Known for its playful and intelligent nature, this breed has a medium-length, ticked coat and enjoys interactive play.

They have a very bushy tail and a very bushy ruff and can come in more than four different colors.

21 Exotic Shorthair A breed developed through the crossbreeding of Persians with American Shorthairs, the Exotic Shorthair retains the Persian's calm temperament but with a short, plush coat. It is a medium-to-large domestic cat breed that is generally easygoing and affectionate.
22 Toyger
23 Manx Cat A domestic cat breed originating from the Isle of Man, the Manx is distinguished by its absence or shortening of the tail due to a natural genetic mutation. The breed is known for its friendly and social nature, often displaying behaviors commonly associated with dogs such as fetching.

They're so nice. One of my Manx cats sat on my lap while I was playing the PlayStation, and another time I was reading the newspaper, and he sat on it to get attention. So smart!

They are so nice. They sit on your lap every day. I say Manx cats should be first. Vote for Manx cats!

The cutest! I used to have one. She was a darling.

24 Selkirk Rex

I'll be getting one of these adorable kittens very soon, and I can't wait to take care of them.

25 Birman

So sweet, cuddly, and playful. My cat Xing Fu Tang lets you rub his stomach. Birman cats are trustworthy, but when they don't feel safe, they are very defensive!

The nicest cat breed you'll ever meet. Also the cutest.
