Top 10 Designer Cat Breeds

When ordinary simply won’t do …

For those with a desire for the designer in all things – including kitties — consider adopting a fabulous furry friend from among the following:

Sphynx

Appearances aside, this hairless honey is a highly prized, hot ticket item in the world of feline fanciers. Admired for her amazing personality, she makes everyone believe in love at first sight. And once a Sphynx owner always a Sphynx owner.

Tonkinese

This minx is a mixture of Siamese and Burmese. Playful and loving, at times more dog than cat, she adores climbing on laps for affection and cuddles. With a sparkling personality that matches her striking good looks, she’s almost impossible to resist

Persian

A combination of her long, luxurious coat and large, luminous eyes makes this plush pussycat the most popular breed in the world. Despite her high price tag and lifelong high maintenance, she’s truly the cat’s meow.

Toyger

She may look as if she mated with a tiger, but this tiny tiger lookalike was the result of creative “engineering.” With one wave of a clever breeder’s wand, the humble, domestic striped tabby was transformed into this miniature queen of the jungle and hearts.

Oriental Shorthair

The eyes have it! And this beauteous blend of domestic and Oriental, as well known for her exquisite eyes as her exotic markings, is equally popular among pet people for her calm personality and easygoing demeanor.

Savannah

Boasting the markings of a wonderfully wild “beast”, beneath her glorious coat beats a pure kitty cat heart that’s worth its weight in gold. According to the International Cat Association, the highest class in this breed could sell for as much as $30,000.

Chausie

The dramatic result of mixing a domestic shorthair with a Middle Eastern cat, her appearance is proof that you can’t judge a cat by its coat. She may look fur-ocious, but she’s the sweetest of felines, with a very loving and affectionate personality.

Havana Brown

Stunning with her jewel like green eyes and rich chocolate brown coat, she rules every kitty cat runway. Although rather rare and difficult to find, anyone fortunate enough to own one falls in love with her loving loveliness now and fur-ever.

Bengal

Bred to resemble the sleekest of stalkers in the wild is one of reasons this domesticated darling is adored by so many. More than delightfully decorative, this friendly and feisty feline can tame even the wildest human heart.

Ocicat

Created from an Abyssinian, an American Shorthair and a Siamese, she’s not only a breathtaking beauty who behaves like a dream, she’s also bright, easily trained, and will readily adapt to any loving household’s rules and routine.

Nomi Berger

Nomi Berger is the bestselling author of seven novels, one work of non-fiction, two volumes of poetry, and hundreds of articles. She is a volunteer writer for Furry Friends in Vancouver, WA and also volunteers her writing skills to animal rescue groups in Canada and the USA. She lives with her adopted Maltese named Mini.
