These particular cat breeds have been the most consistently superb, not only with children, but also with other pets, and busy households, so check them out! Enjoy the journey and always remember.......Cats Rule!
O.K. so while you check out all the fancy felines in the -Cat Breeds Encyclopedia- keep in mind that all breed descriptions are generalizations and don't apply to all individuals. Learn about your potential new best friend, research breeds and breeders thoroughly, and always remember...Cats Rule!
Wondering if you should allow your cat to go outside
unsupervised? Well there are definitely some pure breeds
that should never be outside cats. Hairless
breeds like the Sphynx
are extremely vulnerable and should always be supervised outdoors.
Docile breeds like the Burmese
may not be able to defend themselves. All cats allowed
outdoors are exposed to diseases and parasites that they would not
put his saber-tooth out every
night, but the cat jumped right back in the window - and that was a
saber-tooth! Still, most of us feel a little
envy when we see our
domestic companion out on some high perch, sniffing the breeze of
liberty, and there is no doubt that cats love their freedom.
