|Domestic Cat Breeds
|Have you always wanted a cat, but heard some breeds make
better pets than others? Maybe you have always wanted a cat, but don't know
anything about them? There are plenty of ways to learn about cats and what
breeds fit your personality. The choice can come from having an indoor, outdoor
or indoor and outdoor cat. Small cats are often pray for birds and other
wildlife and should be kept indoors. Tomcats, a mixed breed, are great at
surviving outdoors but best kept indoors. So let us look at a few breeds of
cats and then you will be able to choose which one may be right for your
Siamese: The Siamese cat can be a fickle creature.
They often require a lot of attention when they determine it is necessary. They
tend to meow quite a bit and can create mischief if left alone for too long.
Siamese can be great pets, especially when raised from infancy. They are often
white with brown ears and blue eyes. You may recognize them from Lady and the
Tramp. Those two were a little mean and not the typical portrayal of a Siamese.
Siamese are generally very affectionate. They are also one of the most
intelligent of the cat species. They tend to be very social which is why they
meow or "talk" a lot. A sign for attention is usually a very vocal meow much
like a babies cry. Siamese typically bond to one person very strongly and are
territorial of that person.
Persian: The Persian cat breed is
one of the oldest cats around. They are longhaired cats with beautiful shinny
coats. They are very soft and friendly however, they are prone to health
problems such as allergies. The Persian does not always play as much as other
breeds but they do enjoy a bit of fun for exercise especially in a social
situation. They love to have other cats around to play with as well as having a
lap available when they are in need of one. Persians are a variety of colors
from solid black, white or a mix of white and browns around the face. A popular
Persian is the Himalayan.
Manx: The Manx is known for its
stubby tail or having no tail. Often a Manx can suffer from worms and other
parasites due to improper cleaning and not having the protection of a tail.
This does not mean you should discount the Manx as a breed. The Manx breed is
extremely intelligent and playful. They are a lot like dogs in the play area
because they can fetch when you throw toys for them to bring back to you. They
are very social animals and depend on human care. They don't like to be left
alone for too long, so it is wise to have other cats to play with when you are
gone during the day. The best home for a Manx is one filled with children.
These are just three of the more popular breeds of cats. There are
over a dozen cat breeds to choose from and finding the one to fit your
lifestyle is important. Cats are very social and intelligent but some breeds
can be loners. Most often, a cat chooses when the time is right and what type
of attention they want at that time. The phrase "you do not own a cat it owns
you" is very true.
