Over 50 different cat breeds exist in all shapes and sizes

Early in the twentieth century different cat breeds were being distinguished, although essentially, there are only three types of cats: pedigree, non-pedigree and cross breeds.

Whether your cat thinks he is pedigreed royalty who should be in Buckingham Palace instead of your living room, or a street-smart, rough-and-tumble non-pedigree, there are many things you need to know to be the perfect cat owner (or slave...)

Are you thinking of owning a pedigree cat such as a Persian? You need to consider whether you have the time for the daily grooming needs of such a high maintenance cat.

Does it matter to you if your cat is aloof or likes to sit on your lap for a mutual cuddle? Each cat's personality is greatly dependent on the way that he or she is handled and reared by their human.

People who love cats come in all shapes and sizes, as do cat breeds. Being informed about different types of cats will ensure that you and your cat have a mutually beneficial relationship.

This site aims to be a comprehensive and practical guide to looking after your cat (pedigree or non-pedigree) at every stage of its life.
