Hmmm . . . I love all
cats. My first baby, as you all know, is a kitten. I want to be able to watch her grow up. I want my fiance to see the cute stage of kittenhood, since he's never had a cat. (Plus, I've figured out a way to get my fiance involved -- tell him this is a test. He has to prove himself with this kitty before he is getting kids. LOL)
That said, providing I don't get really into the show scene and want a show cat next, I was thinking my next baby would be a rescue, probably an adult. As Laura and Sue said, there are lots of adults that need homes, and they don't get adopted as easily as kittens.
