is popular with cat lovers who enjoy busy, active, playful cats. Life with the "Aby" is never boring. Learn more about the Abyssinian
This is very nice, but I think it is wrong. The CFA does not register Domestic Cat and I think that if every cat was registered, we would discover that my breed - Domestic Shorthair Cat - is the most popular breed on the planet! In fact, I think there are more Domestic Shorthair Cat than their are Persians, Maine Coon, Exotic, Siamese and Abyssinians all put together. Hah!
And let us not forget that if it was not for Domestic Cat, that none of those breeds would exist in the first place! All those so call purebred cats all started out, many, many, many sleeps ago as Domestic Cat.
So, let us here it for Domestic Cat - the most Popular Breed of Cat of all!
(P.S. And a Happy Cinco de Mayo to you as well!)
