All cat breeds are adorable. This includes breeds like the Lykoi and even hairless breeds like the Sphynx or Peterbald. We love them all and find each to be as cuddly and cute as the next. There are some cat breeds, however, that stop you in your tracks when you see one. These stand out a bit from all the rest and each for its own reasons. The following is an incomplete list of breeds that make our hearts swoon because we just find them to be unbearably cute!
Despite a regal French name, the Cat Fanciers’ Association notes that the Chartreux actually originated in ancient Persia. Known for being mild-mannered and highly intelligent, this particular breed forms a very close bond with its owners. It is known for following a beloved human from room to room as it prefers to always be in the presence of its favorite person. This cat’s smiling face also steals hearts and its dense blue coat just makes the breed a magnificent sight to behold!
A silky walnut colored coat and bright amber eyes…how can any true cat-lover resist the allure of a Burmese cat? We know that we can’t! Our pet sitters love all cats, especially those with the pleasant temperament that the Burmese is known for.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association doesn’t officially recognize the Bengal as a breed at this time. Still, we are in love with this cat’s exotic look originally created by mating domestic cat breeds with Asian Leopard Cats. The result is a gorgeous striped or spotted domestic cat that looks a lot like a Bengal tiger. Simply gorgeous!
4. British Shorthair
Cross a plush teddy bear with a domestic cat and what do you get? A British Shorthair! Ok, ok a stuffed teddy bear isn’t really in this breed’s lineage, but they’re just sooooo cuddly that you almost believed our tall tale, right?
5. Scottish Fold
With small folded ears, the first thing you notice on a Scottish Fold is its sweet round face and large enchanting eyes. Its tiny nose and wee little voice qualifies it as one of the cutest cat breeds ever! Although the breed is just a little over 50 years old, we’re sure that it will remain a favorite among cat fanciers for many, many years to come!
