Small Cat Breeds

Small cat breeds have always been very popular companions. When neatness or space is a priority, a tiny cat can make things just a little easier. Naturally, handling

and transporting little cats is usually easier too, but if you have a very busy household with multiple larger pets and young children, a tiny cat may become timid. Some of these petite pussycats are the result of centuries of domestication and thus make excellent indoor companions. Because most small cat breeds were bred specifically with lap cat potential in mind the ideal companionship qualities of personality and a desire for close human contact seem to be built right in. Cats of these breeds should range from 4 pounds to 10 pounds but there will always be exceptions. Of course the only way to guarantee adult size is to adopt a deserving adult cat who is already the perfect size for you! So check these little cats out!

Purebred Cats

Cats have been selectively bred for appearance and temperament for thousands of years no doubt starting with the first good mousers who made themselves useful in the first farmhouses. Recently all sorts of exciting varieties have been developed including several hairless breeds and some fabulous felines like the Singapura which is one of the smallest. Along with different domestic cats there are an assortment of wild cat/domestic cat crosses that add lots of spice to the mix. Exotic cats are in vogue too. Many of the varieties of cats listed here are pedigreed and recognized by the Cat Fanciers Association(CFA), the world's largest cat organization. Check them all out in our exclusive -CatStats- fact files.

Inside Cat or Outside Cat?

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 otherwise encounter. Fred Flintstone put his saber-tooth out every night, but the cat jumped right back in the window - and he 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.
