Small Cat Breeds A to Z


Small cat breeds have always been very popular companions.

When neatness or space are 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 small cat may become timid.

Some of these petite pussycats are the result of centuries of domestication and thus make excellent indoor companions.

Because most cat breeds that stay small 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.

Also among these cat breeds that stay small are several curly haired types like the Devon Rex and Cornish Rex and the remarkable LaPerm.  

The often hairless Sphynx and Peterbald breeds also trend to the petite end of the spectrum.

The exquisite Singapura cat is recognized as the worlds smallest cat breed, with some adults reaching only about 4 pounds in size!

These tiny cat breeds should all 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!
