The Maine Coon is the largest domestic cat breed, capable of weighing 20 pounds or more.

The British Shorthair cat is one of the oldest English cat breeds; it is gentle, calm, and quiet.

12. British Longhair

The Persian and the British Shorthair were crossbred to create the British Longhair. The kitten that results is amiable and will be a lovely and loving companion for the whole family. Because of their lush hair and lap-loving personality, they are frequently referred to as the teddy bear of cats.

13. Persian

This lovely cat breed has grown to be one of the most popular in North America. The Persian breed's history is unknown, however, they are assumed to have originated in Persia in the 1600s.

Birman cats have a pointed coat that comes in six various hues, but they nearly always have white socks and stunning blue eyes. They have long, lovely coats and a cheerful demeanor. The Birman is a kind cat who will discreetly remind you to feed it while also lavishing care for you and the rest of your family. The Birman is a more private breed and tends to attach themself to one person. Be careful though, as some Birmans tend to show a bit of jealousy if they aren't given enough attention.

15. Egyptian Mau

The Egyptian Mau is a breed of cat that may or may not be derived from the original Egyptian cat, although no one knows for sure. Owners are confident, however, that they are friendly cats that, despite vocalizing, do so quietly. They usually act as if they completely control the environment around them.
