10 Cutest Cat Breeds in the World
"Women and cats will do as they please, and men and dogs should relax and get used to the idea." ~ Robert A. Heinlein
It might be their playful nature, or their unassuming air of superiority that allows cats to get away with just about anything, and with such style that berating them is not an option. I mean, how can you get mad at your kitten playing with a ball of yarn, or calmly looking up at you with that confident smile-yawn on her face, despite the streak of chaos and destruction she just left behind in the kitchen? It's simply not possible.
I've owned cats for longer than I can remember; call me biased, but I'm pretty sure that my fluffy black moggy is the cutest cat in the world. However, she can't hog all the limelight, so in fairness to some of the other cats out there, I've put her aside and trawled the internet to find the (next) ten cutest cat breeds in the world. It's a tough job, but somebody's gotta do it.
Typically white in colour, the Turkish Angora cat is a real beauty. No surprises for guessing that they originated in Turkey; their existence has been documented as early as the 16th Century, but they weren't introduced to western Europe until much later. Turkish Angoras have the sort of amazing long fur that you just want to bury your face in. This fur was considered so beautiful that it was actually a quality looked for during breeding, in order to improve the fur of the more well known Persian cats. Nevertheless, these cats are beauties in themselves, and they're still around today.
Often, they can be found with one or two blue eyes - usually this is a sign of deafness in cats, with the blue eye corresponding with the ear where the deafness occurs. Mother Nature is incredible!
Yet another breed you've probably never heard of, Somali cats are very striking to look at. Most commonly, they can be seen in an unusual colour which is a blend of ginger, brown and red - something which I haven't seen on any other cats before. Trust me, I've seen a lot of cats. Very often, their manes and tails are much fluffier than their bodies, which makes for an interesting silhouette! I don't know about you, but I find this breed incredibly alluring, mesmerising and, well, down right cute.
