All Longhaired Cat Breeds

If you want a soft, fluffy cat, you’ll probably find what you’re looking for with a longhaired cat breed. These felines have long and luxurious coats that are silky to the touch. Despite their softness and beauty, longhaired cats may not be right for everyone. They require daily grooming to keep their coats tangle- and mat-free, which can be a chore for busy individuals or families. Plus, they may trigger an allergic reaction in people with dander allergies, which is exacerbated by the frequent shedding. Explore our list of longhaired cat breeds below to find out which one of these elegant felines is right for you.
