  • Coat: Shorthair
  • Trait: Stocky and well-muscled; sable, also champagne, blue, and platinum
  • Identity: People-oriented, affectionate

Burmese cats in general are active, inquisitive felines that readily adjust to new situations. Some Burmese cats may become a bit too passive as they get older, instead of participating in activities.

They enjoy viewing the world around them, and their favorite spot may frequently be a window where they can view the world outside. Burmese cats are quite social with other Burmese cats, but they may have difficulties getting along with other breeds.

British Shorthair

  • Coat: Shorthair
  • Trait: Stocky, sturdy, plush coat; blue is very popular but also come in other colors
  • Identity: Calm and quiet; enjoy people

The British Shorthair is a study in circularity. He has a big round head, round eyes, and rounded paws. Even his tail has a rounded tip. In the past, he was known as the British Blue because he was only available in that hue, but these days his short, plush coat comes in a variety of hues and patterns. The British Longhair is distinguishable by his long hair (that’s what distinguishes him from the BSH).

Devon Rex

  • Coat: Shorthair
  • Trait: Naturally curly, wavy coat; many colors and patterns
  • Identity: Pixie look and personality

Devon rex cats are apparently cute and have distinctive features like mischievous faces, large ears, and slender bodies. These wide-eyed cats love to play games, climb trees, and jest around. They’re an ideal match for busy people who want to devote plenty of time and energy to them. Don’t expect your munchkin’s cat behavior to change when Devon rexes move in; they’re just as wild as any other breed.

The Devon Rex is a rare breed. A reputable breeder can charge anything from $600 to $1000 for a Devon rex kitten.

Havana Brown

  • Coat: Shorthair
  • Trait: Chocolate brown
  • Identity: Busy, affectionate

Havana Brown’s personality is more unique than its coat, which is a smokey sienna color. Although Havana Browns are still uncommon, they have established a passionate following. Havanas are loving, gentle cats that, unlike their Siamese counterparts, are quiet. They are extremely flexible and social cats who accept almost any circumstance with grace and confidence. If Havanas are to live happy and healthy lives, they need human companionship.

Havanas love human companionship and will not be satisfied until they can be beside you, assisting you with your domestic tasks. Havanas enjoy reaching out and touching their favorite people; they frequently nudge their human friends with an extended paw as if seeking attention. Fetch is a popular Havana game, and they are frequently seen carrying toys and other misplaced items in their mouths. Check your Havana’s cat bed if you’ve misplaced a sock or some other tiny thing that can easily be carried in your hand.

Oriental Shorthair

  • Trait: Siamese style cat without the point markings; over 150 colors and patterns are possible
  • Identity: Vocal, affectionate, active; can be insistent

Oriental short-haired cats don’t just walk into space; they take control of it. From their prominent ears and angular faces to their tall, lean bodies, these beautiful cats appear aloof. Their amiable, pleasant disposition is quite the opposite.

Persian

  • Coat: Longhair
  • Trait: Stocky body, long full coat, round head with a short nose; broad face; available in a variety of colors and patterns
  • Identity: Sweet, affectionate, quiet

The quiet and sweet Persian cat is well-known for its composure and gentleness. Although Persians are laid-back and easygoing, they still exude an air of majesty. They may not hiss or scratch quickly, but they will become irritated if disturbed by noisy children or pets.

However, those who treat the Persian cat with the dignity and gentleness they deserve will be rewarded with an affectionate lap cat who enjoys a good petting or even a brush through their hair. If you want a best friend who will return all your dedication and love in kind, the Persian may be the right feline for your family.
