Interested in getting a new cat for your household? If it's a purebred you're looking for, here's a list of characteristics specific to different breeds to help you choose. While having a purebred cat from a reputable breeder is your best bet at getting a specific look or temperament, your mileage may vary as every cat is unique.
Even within breeds, cat behavior, personality, and sometimes appearance will vary widely. Genetics and environment each play a role in an animal’s development, and one can never be certain how a particular cat will act and react to his humans or surroundings. In the end, your cat's preferences and attitude are as individual as you are. One thing, however, is for certain: All thrive on love, attention, and respect.
