WE present a detailed discussion about different variety of cat species at our web venue. We provide interesting information about diverse cat breeds, along with their physical character, personality and health care facts. The section has detailed information on domesticated and feral cats.

 

The cat breeds can be classified on the basis of their body structure.

They are characterized by a short, brawny and tamped body frame with exotic face traits like round eyes, dumpy nose and puny ears. They include Persian and exotic breeds.

 

Semi Cobby cats

 

These cat breeds such as the American and British shorthair breeds are not as chunky as Cobby cats but retain their rotundity attribute.

 

Foreign cats

 

They are cats with a sporty and petite build, though not as slim as the Oriental cats. They include the Abyssinian cat and Turkish Angora.

Typical examples of semi foreign cats are the Egyptian Mau and the Devon Rex. These cats are lean and not at all burly.
