Abyssinian The Abyssinian, one of the oldest cat breeds, is majestic. This cat has a strong physique, arched neck, and huge ears. It has almond-shaped eyes and mimics ancient Egyptian cat art and sculptures.
American bobtail Despite its wild look, the American bobtail is a loving, lively, and clever cat breed. Rectangular bodies, wide heads, and a noticeable whisker break above the muzzle distinguish these medium to big cats.
American curl The American curl can be short or long, but that's not its name. Its happy-looking backward-curling ears gave it the name “Curl”.
American shorthair This cat has short hair in many colors and patterns, as the name implies. The muscular American shorthair weighs up to 12 pounds. Hill's says these beautiful kitties enjoy family time and sunnaps.
North American wirehair Like its name, this cat has a wired coat, but in different colors and patterns. Farm cats in upstate New York spontaneously mutated into the American wirehair.
Balinese This breed is less famous than the Siamese appearance. The two have similar body types, coloration, and startling blue eyes, but the Balinese has a silky, flowing hair and a plume tail—arguably one of the loveliest cat breeds.
Bengal No—a wildcat on the sofa! Not so, but the Bengal is another attractive cat breed with vibrant patches or marbling. Its intellect, playfulness, and beauty make it an ideal family pet.
Birman Silky coat, intense blue eyes, and white gloves or stockings on each paw define the long-haired Birman. These beautiful kitties were temple priests' friends in northern Burma, but their narrative goes worse.
