Most popular breed of cat!

According to the CFA, the Currently the top 5 Most Popular cat Breeds are:

The most popular cat on the planet. Undeniably beautiful, elegant and regal. Learn more about the Persian

Maine Coon
This made-in-America breed is prized for its large size, sweet personality and silky all-weather coat. Learn more about the Main Coon

Sometimes called the lazy person's Persian, the exotic has the same body and head type as the Persian but with a short, easy-care coat. Learn more about the Exotic

Siamese are sleek, vocal cats with big baby-blue eyes and striking pointed patterns. Learn more about the Siamese

The Abyssinian 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!)

i agree with you about the domestic cat.

Diamond, are we a little upset today? Yes, the domestic cat is very important and large in number and are some of my bestest friends on the CB.

Daisy said...

Harley thinks the Domestic Shorthair rules, too! I am a little sad that Devon Rex is not a very popular breed.

catsynth said...

We agree, domestic shorthair is the most popular breed. :)

MoMo said...

Of course you are right, again! I am a long-haired mutt myself.

Cory said...

Oh yes, the Domestic short hairs and Domestice Medium hairs in this family rule! Sorry momma Ellie!

Life Style said...

Nice blog, Ilike this article about my favorit cat so much

Sunny's Mommy said...

I agree with you, Diamond!

Doris said...

While Persians are the number one pedigreed breed, the most popular cats are actually domestic short-haired cats. But the reason that these cats are not recognized, is that they are essentially of mixed stock and not purebreds.
