Cat Breeds

In this article we will look at a few of the most common cat breeds that are still worldwide today. The first cat breed we will cover is the 'American Bobtail'. I always liked this breed but you may be a little surprised on how young the breed is - they were first introduced about fifty years ago. They have a shortish bobtail ( hence the name ) and they have rather a wild looking coat about them. They are pleasant 'vocal' cats that are known to get on well in households that already contain dogs.

The second cat breeds we are going to cover are the 'British Shorthair'. These are what I term the most striking cats out there ( and I'm not being biased because I live in the U.K. ). I find there grey versions of this breed a very attractive cat. These are not the choice of cat you want if you have young children in the house, I'm not saying they are a timid breed but they prefer to shy away from to much noise.

Out of the cat breeds mentioned here today I think the next is probably the most diverse. The 'Korat' is again, a very striking breed of cat that originates from Thailand and it is thought to be one of the oldest domestic cat breeds in the world. They are very fun loving, active cats that are known to be quite intelligent.

One of newest cat breeds I find quite attractive and unique is the aptly named 'Munchkin'. The breed of Munchkin we know and love these days was developed in the 1980's in the USA. They are quite dainty cats whose top weight is no more than nine pounds. They are a very mixed breed and because of this they enjoy a lot of attention and play. Some people say their outgoing personality is down to the amount of cat breeds they are made up from.

This takes us to the last of the cat breeds we are going to cover - the 'Siamese' cat. No cat article would be complete without mentioning this extremely well known cat. The Siamese is one of the oldest cat breeds in the world and is said to go back as far as the 14th century. They are thought to have originated from Thailand and are very 'vocal' cats. I think they actually look nicer the older they get as their coats get darker with age.
