Top 10 cat breeds you might like to have as your pet

Cats, cats, cats, these little fluff-balls still represent a mystery for some of us. It is known that since the Egyptian era, the cats were considered friends, they were even worshiped by the Egyptian people. Their smooth presence and their cute looks made people obey to them like they were some kind of Gods. Nothing much changed nowadays, except the fact that people (or at least some of them) don’t worship the cats anymore, but their fluffy and cute looks are still making people love them.

Cats are interesting animals, they are different from dogs in so many ways. For example, cats are not as lovely and playful with their humans like dogs are. A cat loves you and plays with you only when she wants to because she has a powerful attitude and she considers that she is your owner, not vice versa. If you are not paying attention to her moods and you still want to play with her, she will reject you and she may do that in a not so friendly way, by scratching you, but not in a serious manner, more like a warning to „Leave me alone, human, why don’t you understand?!”.

If you love cats, you like their sweet little aspect, their smooth cozy fur and you are willing to bear their moods, then you should adopt a cat as your pet because yes, they can be mean sometimes, but if you get to know and love eachother there will be no turning back and you will be friends for life.

Here are some of the most popular cat breeds that you should consider when wanting to adopt a cute, little soul.
