Cat Breeds

Selecting a purebred cat helps you choose your cat's look and indicate it's temperament. Of course, every cat is unique with it's own distinct personality. Living environment will also play a part in determining your cat's temperament.

There are a number of different organizations who determine cat breeds, however, there is no complete consensus between them. The number of breeds each recoignizes and the exact breed specifications vary. As of 2016, the International Progressive Cat Breeders Alliance (IPCBA) recognizes 73 cat breeds while The International Cat Association (TICA) recognizes 58. The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) recognizes 44 and Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFe) recognizes 43.

The nature of developing cat breeds, involves selective and cross breeding. The point at which a cross becomes a breed in it's own right is not clear cut.

This list includes established breeds recognized by cat registries, along with some new and experimental breeds.
