As the title implies, what is your favorite cat breed? I love cats of every shape, size and color, but of course I have my biases like anybody else. I tend to prefer long-haired fluffballs, so Maine Coons and Ragdolls always make me happy. I've also had a love affair with the Russian Blue since I was a kid. (One of our local libraries used to have a live-in Russian Blue...silkiest cat I've ever pet.)
Maine Coon and Ragdolls is fine breeds to choose. But both will need extra care with the fur. And with Maine Coon, you will have to make sure you have extra time to play with them. Between 2, I will prefer ragdolls the most because Ragdolls more domestic and friendly.
I love forest cat as much as domestic cat. It is hard to decide which one my favorite breed but I know exactly which one I don't like: Sphynx. Hairless make it look scary for me.
