Did you know that there are several different organizations that are dedicated to cats and their various breeds? Interestingly, they differ on how many kitty breeds they recognize.The Cat Fanciers Association (CFA) allows 44 adorable cat breeds, while The International Cat Association recognizes 71. They’re all pretty adorable! In this article, a local vet introduces a few you may not be familiar with.
The Highlander first clawed her way into our hearts back in 2004. A cross between the Desert Lynx and the Jungle Curl, these cute kitties are lovable, cuddly, cuddly, and frisky. Unlike most of our feline pals, they love water. They’re also very talented little gymnasts!
This cute cat is a mix between the Bengal and the Ocicat, two exotic breeds. Like many other exotic cats, they sport very pretty patterned coats, and are quite the little chatterboxes!
Many cat breeds aloud redheads, but the Tennessee Rex is the only kitty on our list that is always a ginger. These fluffy felines are fairly large. They’re also curly! Fluffy’s exact lineage is unknown, as the breed traces back to a Tennessee stray that gave birth to some very unique looking kittens.
As the name suggests, the Toybob is an itty bitty kitty. These lovable felines usually don’t get any larger than a 3 to 6 month old kitten. Unlike most toy breeds, they aren’t a miniaturized version of a larger breed, but are a unique breed of their own. They tend to be great climbers and lapcats.
Named after the Greek goddess of love, the Aphrodite is a fairly large furball that also has a very big heart! These sweet cats have very long back legs, and thick, soft coats. They tend to grow more slowly than most of our feline pals, taking about 3 years to reach their full adult size.
The Lykoi is a small kitty that is making big waves. These sweet kitties are known as werewolf cats, because of their unusual fur and appearance. Don’t worry, though: you won’t turn into a werewolf if Fluffy bites you!
Although the Ojos Azules has been around since 1984, they are quite rare. These pretty cats can sport a variety of colors, but all of them have striking, deep blue eyes. In fact, the name Ojos Azules translates to ‘blue eyes’ in Spanish!
