What's your favourite breeds of cat?
post #2 of 30
Well, my favorite "breed" of cat is a mixed breed... DSH/DLH/DMH. But out of those on your poll, I voted for Siamese.
post #3 of 30
All of our cats are DSH but if we could get a purebred cat...we love Exotics, Persians, Ragdolls, Ocicats, Bengals, Maine Coons, Russian Blues, Norwegian Forest Cats...
They are all so beautiful, it'd be hard to choose

You should group them into 3-4 groups of type.

I can't vote from your list

Favs: Ocicat, Cornish Rex, Oriental SH, Siamese

My favorite breeds weren't in the options, so i voted Siamese since Siamese are similar to Colorpoints. My favorite breeds are Turkish Angora's and Colorpoints (similar to Siamese)

That being said though, both my purebreed kitties came from rescues just like my dsh's did. I won't buy from a breeder, because there are sooo many furbabies in shelters that need good homes. (I work in a shelter, so i see sooo many animals- both purebreeds and moggies come in on a daily basis, i could never not adopt)

You know I really like the look of Bengals so I picked that. But if I could have any cat (for a LOW price) I would get a Munchin cat. They are so cute! They are like a wenier dog, but instead a wenier cat!

Why aren't Ocicats listed????
post #16 of 30
My favourites are Oriental Shorthair and Cornish Rex, so I didn't vote in the poll!
post #17 of 30
No 'Gentle Giant' Maine Coons?
I honestly can't decide unless there's a Maine Coon option up there. I love Bengals, Maus and Russians but Coons are my top fav.
post #18 of 30
All my cats have been considered DSH or DLH, I think Linus may have a bit of Russian Blue in him, and Sassy has the build of something like an Angora or Ragdoll, but couldn't say for sure.
I guess if I was going to go for a pure breed it would most likely be a Russian Blue, Ragdoll or British Shorthair. I like all three breeds quite well.

I'm a huge fan of moggie tabbies and black cats as well! Torties are totally charming too. As for purebred kitties, I would have to say that Scottish Folds and Siamese are my faves with the adorable bobs (Pixie & Japanese) bringing up second place.

Well my favourite breed is the Somali, which isn't there Neither are many of the other breeds I'm very fond of (Siberian, Maine Coon to name 2). But if you're asking which of the breeds you've listed is my favourite, I'd probably say Balinese.
