Domestic Cat List
D to M

An extensive cat list that features over 70 recognized domestic cats.

Some of the cat breeds listed are not acknowledged by all the cat registries.

There are also a number of breeds, especially those known as the dwarf cats that are under development and whilst listed here, they are yet to find acceptance amongst the cat fancy.

There are a host of different cat breeds to choose from - curly coated cats, cats with folded ears, cats with short tails and those with no tails at all.
