If you are looking for all types of cats, then look no further!
The gallery below features the popular and well known breeds, dwarf cats, hairless cats and the hybrid cats developed by man.
In this chapter about cat breeds we cover the history of each specific cat breed.
By history we mean the origin of the breed, the country of origin, the development of the breed and the myths surrounding so many of the breeds.
You will love the stories about the Birman, Japanese Bobtail and even the darling Singapura - so do take a look.
If you are looking for information related to breed characteristics, temperament, health and nutrition then we suggest you look at our domestic cats facts.
