12 Most Popular Cat Breeds for Cat Lovers

Cat lovers love to argue over which cat breed is the best. The truth is there isn’t, but don’t say this to cat enthusiasts. There are many cat breeds to choose from if you are looking to get one. Here are the 12 most popular ones.


Sphynx cats have a peculiar appearance. Unlike most cats, these feline creatures are characteristically furless. This can be good for you if you love cats but don’t like them shedding their fur around your house. Their skin is wrinkly and smooth.

The absence of fur makes them look a bit aloof or distant, but these creatures are quite active and playful. They are quite social but have many goofy moments.

This breed has a life expectancy of 9 to 15 years. Most sphynx cats have a natural potbelly. You may wrongly assume the one you are about to get is overweight if you are unaware of this. They weigh between 6 to 12 pounds and stand as tall as 10 inches. [1]
