From the Most Popular to the Rarest Cat Breeds, We Love Them All

A hairless cat rests on a table.

Technically, a “cat fancier” is someone who breeds and cares for cats. The Cat Fanciers’ Association was originally founded in 1906 and sets the standard for the world’s largest registry of pedigreed cats. However, because of feline overpopulation and the inherent challenges therein, most cat lovers today tend to adopt from shelters or rescues, never knowing their true lineage. 

Whether domestic or purebred, there are so many beautiful cat breeds to love and admire.
