Cats are just as pleasing to the eye and just as wonderful pets as any other breeds, and some have the added appeal of looking absolutely 'wild'! Their look may be 'wild', but they are definitely very tame.
Let's take a closer look at some of these fantastic cats.
Types of breeds of cats
Havana Brown has the distinction of being a chocolate colored cat.
The Manx, is Another short-hair, has the unique
characteristic of a naturally bobbed tail.
Burmese cats have large, expressive eyes. Their coats have a
satiny texture that requires little grooming. For their size the
Burmese is surprisingly heavy and they have been described as
'bricks wrapped in silk'. In the show rings the body type of the
Burmese cat is compact with a rounded head.

spotting on the belly. They can be one of four different color
combinations... brown tabby, seal lynx point, seal sepia tabby, or
seal mink tabby. They are a medium to large cat, very sleek and
The Havana Brown is a 'chocolate' cat. Just that... having a
beautifully shiny solid mahogany-toned brown coat. The other
distinct feature of the Havana Brown is the shape of its' head,
which is longer than it is wide with a definite whisker break and a
strong square chin. The eyes of the Havana Brown are expressive
large green ovals and they are positioned lower on the head than
other breeds. Havana Browns are lithe medium sized muscular cats
with the mature males weighing about 8-10 pounds.
Havana Brown has got its' name from a rabbit of the same color, but
most fans of the breed like to think that the object of their
adoration was named after a fine brown Havana cigar.
'Ocicat'is almost like a small wild cat found in southern North America and South
America). it's a beautiful spotted cat.Ocicats are as devoted to
people as they are exotic looking. Adult males can weigh up to 18
pounds. Ocicats are bright and easy to train, and they have no
particular health problems due in large part to their extensive
The Siamese, 'people' cat, was first officially exported from
Thailand (Siam at the time) in the late 1800's . They were a gift
from Siam to an English ambassador. Almost immediately they began
appearing in English cat shows, and then in American cat shows. The
other color combination is the lilac point which combines a white
body with pinkish gray points.
Aside from the distinct color of this breed, the body structure is a
study in length... an elongated muscular tubular body on long
graceful legs with a long whip of a tail. The Siamese head is long
and wedge shaped (straight in profile) sitting atop a long graceful
neck. The most arresting feature of the Siamese cat are the blue
almond shaped eyes, widely spaced and slanted. The eyes of the
Siamese cat are second to none in that they exude intelligence and
emotion like no other. One other feature that sets this breed apart
is the Siamese voice... at times they almost seem to be trying to
talk with their plaintive vocalizations.
IT'S GOOD! A cat can keep you company while you read or watch TV. Many even prove quite playful, plus they purr when they're happy.
Why it's not that good: They make their own rules and are very
moody with loads of attitudes. Nearly all cats are more aloof than dogs. That means they don't always come when you call them or play with you when you want. Some people are allergic.
Requirements: Cats must be fed daily. You don't need to let them outside to poop, since they use a litter box. But you do need to scoop the litter box out daily and clean it weekly.
Longhaired cats need to be brushed regularly. You'll probably need help clipping your cat's nails. If you must travel, your cat can look after itself for a couple of days, as long as it has plenty of food and water. Don't forget spaying or neutering.
COST for a Cat: It can cost from free, for a shelter cat), to $75 to $500 for a purebred; annual cost: $300 to $400, depending on types of food and litter.
In the end Cats make a wonderful pet. It's a favorite for everyone, whether you are young or old, you
would simply love to have a 'bundle of fur' cuddling up to you to get your
attention. They will give you enough space to live your own life. The
chances of a cat becoming your best friend is more if you have a can of
sardine and milk around!!!
