11. American Hard Coated Cat
Popular colours: Red and white
Country of origin: USA
Prevalence of disease: None
The American Hard Coat is one of the most distinctive breeds of cat, nicknamed the “Iron Brush” in the USA. Because this breed is so subversive to the traditional perception of what a cat’s hand feels like, it has not caught on and is now rare in Europe. Even in the USA, where it originated, it is not very widespread. The American Shorthair is a very strong and playful cat that needs a lot of time every day to exert its energy and strength. He loves to make friends and will not shy away from strangers like other cats, but will go up and rub his trouser legs with enthusiasm. He is a very good feeder and does not need to worry about his diet or health. Because of the rough coat, even the frequency of grooming can be reduced to once a week. To feed a cat like this, all you have to do is play with it and have fun.
12. Labo Cat
Popular colours: Red and white
Country of origin: USA
Susceptible to: Colds
The Labo is the phonetic name for this breed, but its nickname is actually more interesting – the Electric Curly Cat. Despite its unusual appearance, the Labo has the same sturdy body as the Native American cats and does not require any special care during feeding. Another characteristic of the Labo cat is that it is extraordinarily athletic and will be enthusiastic about playing even when it is very old. This is in contrast to other cat breeds.
13. Welsh Cat
More popular colour: Brown tiger spot
Country of origin: Canada
Susceptibility to disease: Ear mites
The Welsh cat is also known as the Long Cat Manx, which you can think of as a long-haired cat without a tail. Because it is a long-haired strain of the Isle of Man, the Welsh cat has many of the same characteristics as the Isle of Man. For example, the medium body shape, thick bones and well-developed muscles give you an overall feeling of plumpness and robustness. There are also the trademark long hind legs and jumping walk, to name but a few. Although the Welsh cat has a long coat, it is easy to groom. The Welsh cat has inherited the resilience and adaptability of its ancestors and loves to communicate with people and shows no fear of strangers, even with other pets or children in the home. Generally speaking, the Welsh cat has to change its coat in spring and autumn, and a large amount of dead hair will be shed. Therefore, it should be groomed frequently, which not only collects the shed coat in time to prevent the environment from being soiled, but also cleans the dirt and dust from the cat’s body, promotes its skin blood circulation and strengthens its skin resistance.
14. Kenya Cat
More popular colour: Red
Susceptibility to disease: Dermatitis
The improved breeding of the Kenyan cat maintains the active character of its ancestors and gives you a vibrant feeling every day. They are independent, do not need their owners around at all times and are friendly with other pets. Even if they are harassed or attacked, the Kenyan cat can escape by jumping into the water or jumping straight up to a high place to hide, just like its ancestors. No genetic diseases have been identified in the Kenyan cat and the short coat is easy to care for. Daily strokes from his owner are all he needs to communicate, but! The Kenyan cat’s nature is still full of ancestral wildness, for example it loves to hunt If you want to improve this, you must educate it from an early age. When your Kenyan cat is young, try to be gentle in your communication with it, as too reckless behaviour can provoke its aggressive nature. If your kitten is too aggressive, teach it by shouting at her and by putting her aside and ignoring her no more. But don’t expect it to work once or twice, cats need more intensive training to develop a conditioned reflex.
15. Egyptian cats
Preferred colour: Smoke
Country of origin: Egypt
Susceptible to diseases: None
If you are looking for a quiet and aristocratic meow, the Egyptian cat is a good choice. Aristocratic cats will always have their little quirks, Egyptian cats don’t like noise, let alone strangers, and they can be very sensitive to unfamiliar things. So it is best to feed your Egyptian cat in a tidy and quiet home, and to settle it down first when strangers arrive. ps: The Egyptian cat, also known as the Egyptian God Cat, is recognised as the earliest meow to appear in the world. As early as 1400 AD, ancient Egyptian temples on the banks of the Nile featured frescoes of a spotted cat, which is very similar to the Egyptian cats we see today.
16. Linqing Lion Cat
Preferred colour: white
Susceptibility to disease: Demodex
The Linqing Lion Cat, also known as the Shandong Lion Cat, originates mainly from the city of Linqing in Shandong Province. As the name suggests, the Linqing Lion Cat is strong, resistant to disease and very cold tolerant because of its long coat. Many of the Lion Cats fed locally in Linqing, Shandong Province, are often outdoors and also have the task of catching mice (ˉ(∞)ˉ) The Linqing Lion Cat will be gentle and extremely dependent in front of its owner, but will hide away from strangers when it sees them. The cat must always be fed with hairball cream to prevent the cat from swallowing too much hair and causing gastrointestinal and respiratory diseases. In addition, do not keep the Lin Qing Lion Cat in a sunny place, as its body heat does not dissipate easily and it can easily suffer from heatstroke.
17. Pomera Cat
More popular colour: Silver
Country of origin: UK
Susceptibility to disease: Obesity
The Pomera combines the beauty of a Chinchilla with the sweetness of a Burmese cat, and is healthy and disease prone. The clean coat colour meets the needs of many owners for cleanliness in their pets. With a lively and friendly personality, it can be friendly with all members of the family, including other pets, and will not be nervous or fearful when meeting strangers, but will behave itself, making the Pomera cat one of the ideal choices for a family companion animal.
Considering some factors that were not thought of and measured less before, this is all I have to introduce to you ~ there are many cats that are very popular but not very frugal to take care of, such as Persian cats, Himalayan cats, Chinchilla cats, Oriental Shorthair cats, Norwegian Forest cats Tiffany cats, etc. etc. I will not introduce them all here.
Finally, I would like to add some words: nowadays there are many stray cats and abandoned cats, if it is not necessary, I personally advocate looking for formal organisations or internet channels to adopt cats for free, there are as many options, and for cats it is also giving them a new life. We are born to be the masters of the earth and since we love this animal, why not do what we can to help keep them away from the dangerous, dirty streets and litter boxes.
No matter which breed of cat you choose, purebred or crossbred, noble or stray, they are all unique spirits that bring us warmth in the human world. If you choose to keep a cat, then you must treat it like a family member, take up the sense of responsibility of the owner and be responsible for it to the end.
