Whether you’re choosing a cat based on looks, size or temperament, there is a breed for everyone.
The best cats are those that match your and your family’s lifestyle. High-energy cats are suitable for active, outgoing people. Alternatively, if you’re more introverted and laidback, you should choose a calm, low-energy cat.
How much time can you devote to your new family addition? Think in terms of grooming, feeding and attention. If you have a hectic schedule, a long-haired, attention-seeking breed probably wouldn’t be your best bet. On the other hand, if you have a lot of time to devote to your new cat, a short-haired, independent cat may not fill that void.
Regardless of the traits you desire in a cat, here are some of the most popular cat breeds: Abyssinian, American Shorthair, Birman, Maine Coon, Oriental, Persian, Ragdoll, Siamese, and Sphynx.
