2012 CFA Top 10 Most Popular Cat Breeds

Postby admin » Thu Feb 14, 2013 10:36 pm

Maine Coon
American Shorthair
British Shorthair
Devon Rex

Persian and Exotic Rank #1 and #2 For Fifth Straight Year!
Busy cat owners who like the look of a Persian, but don’t have time for daily grooming sessions,
have made the Exotic second only to the Persian as the most popular cat breed according to the
Cat Fanciers’ Association (CFA) registration statistics. The Exotic is bred to meet the Persian
standard in every way with one very special exception: the coat. The thick, plush, short coat
gives the Exotic a soft, rounded, teddy bear look. However, fans of the Persian understand why
the Persian has been number one for so long. Their long flowing coat coupled with a sweet,
gentle, personality allows Persians to blend into most households once they are secure in their
new environment.
The British Shorthair and Devon Rex have once again, broken into the list of the top ten most
popular breeds, replacing the Cornish Rex and Birman each who have been in the top ten a
number of times over the past ten years. The Brits are renowned for their calm demeanor,
easy going nature and intelligence. The elf-like Devon Rex, with its pixie like face, big inquisitive
eyes, large ears and short slightly upturned nose, makes a most likable pet.
