Feral Cats

Feral cats are descended from household cats but are born and live with no human contact. Any atmosphere that sustains people can uphold feral cats, which are known to have flourished in rural suburban, and urban, areas in all parts of the civilized world. Don’t get confused with wild cats or with stray cats (alley cats). Feral cats may live alone but are usually found in large groups called feral colonies.

Burmese cat--a dog within a cat

There are two types of Burmese cats, the European Burmese and the American Burmese. These two Burmese are now counted as separate breeds. The American standard cats have coats of champagne, sable, blue and platinum. While the modern breeds of Burmese cats in UK and Europe have coats of cream, red, lilac and four shades of tortoise-shell.

British Shorthair

Everything about this cat seems to be welcoming and obese, even its big eyes, which are generally copper in color. British Shorthair cats have curved, broad bodies, and short legs.

The Abyssinian Cat

The Abyssinian cat is one of the most well liked breed of shorthair. They are average built cats with an adapted rounded head, blunt and broad ears, communicative almond eyes, and quite a thick and long tail.

American Bobtail

The Bobtail has the shorter tail than standard one due to a mutation. Their tail length generally ranges between 1” to 4”. Only two short-tailed cats can produce a short-tailed kitty, but it is also common for a litter to contain kittens with long tails.

The American shorthair

The American shorthair is America's personal cat variety whose ancestors moved to North America with early on settlers from Europe. This breed is specifically different from the cats seen in the neighborhood and farm.

American cat curl

The American Curl is a quite new breed and recognized by the distinctive curled ears. Though not all American Curls essentially have curved ears, it is enviable for show cats having ears that curve all the way back to the center of their heads, a bit away from their face.

The American Wirehair

The main and almost single characteristic of the American Wirehair is its sinewy coat and wavy whiskers. To be a best American Wirehair, the coat must be loutish and not too lengthy, since weighty coats tend to turn wavy or straighter. The best Wirehairs are generally produced by a matchup of true American Wirehairs.

Bengal Cats

Modern Bengal cats are big shorthair breeds famed for their excellently spotted coats with a finicky contrast between background colors and the pattern. Their coat colors can be rusty, black, ivory and mahogany with a dotted or marbled pattern.

Birman Cat

A Birman cat has a quite long kitten hood and they only reach middle age at three years of age. Thus spraying or neutering these cats is not done until they are at least 10 months old. The lifetime of the Birman cats are also bigger than most cats, as they generally live for 20 years or more.

Bombay Cats

Bombay cats are known to be peaceful, attention seeking cats. These cats like cuddling up, in quest of body heat and some will try to snooze under your bed covers.
