10 Cutest Cat Breeds in the World

All cats are cute, and even hairless ones are so charming that you can’t tear your eyes from their unique appearance.

But asking a cat lover to pick the most adorable one is like asking a mother to name her favorite child.

Besides their adorableness, Maine Coons are excellent companions thanks to their laid-back personality and affectionate nature.

They aren’t needy and like to keep their hunting instincts sharp by playing with toys and puzzles.

While Maine Coon aren’t lap cats, they are friendly to everybody and are highly trainable.

But they can knock stuff down without meaning to due to their size.

This striped breed is a household cat through and through and one of the most affectionate felines in the world.

So, they won’t try to eat you while you sleep!

They’re generally healthy, but some could have spinal problems.

As a whole, Munchkin cats are sweet, affectionate, and highly intelligent.

They love to play and run and don’t let their short legs slow them down.

However, they are at a disadvantage when it comes to jumping because they can’t leap as far as other breeds.

Still, they’re more agile than most people expect and find a way to reach any high place they want.

Persian cats have always been one of the most popular breeds, which is not surprising given their appearance.

They fascinate people with their majestic fluff, flat faces, and laid-back personality.

While Persians have an air of royalty around them, they’re affectionate and gentle.

Most Persians love to purr in your lap and enjoy attending your kids’ tea parties.

Furthermore, Persians aren’t demanding and are happy as long as you provide them everything they want.

But ignore them for too long, and you’ll see what a grumpy cat breed they can be.

They’re calm felines who prefer a quiet life with as few changes as possible.

In general, an Exotic is happy to entertain themselves while you’re at work and will only pester you for attention if you ignore them too long.

Thanks to this no-care attitude, people often consider them a dumb breed.

Scottish Folds love to pose in odd positions that can put a smile on anyone’s face.

If that’s not enough, Scottish Fold cats also love to sit on their hind legs like meerkats and observe what’s going on around them.

It’s never boring with them in the house, and you’d better keep the camera close by for some cute Instagram photos.

They’re so adorable that you can’t help falling in love with their striking blue eyes and white paws.

Known as the Sacred cat of Burma, Birman cats are affectionate, calm, and quiet.

They’re people-orientated, so you can expect them to follow you around the house and demand to be part of the action.

They also are excellent companions for children.

While the Birman is docile, they’re smart and curious cats.

They’ve got the knack for getting into hard-to-reach places and might get trapped somewhere if you aren’t careful.

 #10 Oriental

Oriental cat breed

A big nose cat breed that wins you over with their adorableness, Oriental cats are a sight to behold, especially black ones.

They have cute bat-like ears that you can scratch all day, a silky coat, and piercing blue or green eyes.

They bond strongly to their owners and can be quite demanding when they want attention.

Moreover, Oriental cats are highly trainable and love to walk on a leash, unlike other stubborn cat breeds.

They also love to climb and often will take residence at the highest point to observe your actions.

Dogs might be man’s best friend, but cats have a large arsenal of charms they aren’t afraid to use.

All cats take advantage of their cuteness to make you forgive them when they’ve been naughty or to get their ways.

Most owners don’t have it their hearts to refuse a cat anything when they make a sad face or hang upside-down from their cat tree.

But be careful because once you spoil your cat, you might regret it.

I’ve grown up surrounded by animals – dogs, cats, cows, goats, sheep, and horses and that has shaped me into what I am today – a crazy cat lady who always has a place for one more cat (or a dog). I’ve got two female cats – Kitty and Roni, and two tomcats – Blacky and Shaggy, but I also feed my neighbors’ cats when they come for a visit. I just can’t say no to them.
I discovered that writing is my vocation early in my school years. Since then I’ve taken part in several literature contests – writing horror and fantasy short stories and novellas.
For the past three years, I’ve been an ELS teacher, pouring my heart into showing children and teenagers how important English is for their future and trying to educate them how to treat their pets with care.
