The 10 most popular cat breeds in the US
Cats have a (largely) undeserved reputation of being aloof and unfriendly, but cat-owners know first-hand the merits of having the furry, lovable creatures around. Still, while most dog owners know whether they have a Dachshund or a beagle, many cat owners still struggle to identify their beloved pet’s breed.
The Cat Fanciers’ Association released a list of the most popular cat breeds for 2016, and the results are surprising. The CFA looked at cat registrations that took place between January 1 and December 31 2016 to gather their data.
Below are the ten most popular cat breeds in America in 2016.
10. The Devon Rex
These cats start out the top ten list. With their big ears and thin bodies, they take on an unusual appearance. These cats learn tricks easily, and like their human to be around them always: those who don’t spend much time at home should not get this kind of cat.
9. The Abyssinian
Abyssinians are one of the oldest known breeds. They’re not lap cats, but they are known for being super intelligent and immensely loyal to their owners.
8. The Sphynx
Sphynx cats are, of course, known for being hairless. Still, their personalities are unique as well: these cats are mischievous and playful and love human company. While owners will need to bathe these cats since they don’t have fur to clean, they’re natural picks for people with allergies.
