Domestic cat breeds list

The list of domestic cat breeds and hybrids. Find more about their looks, their personality and habits. They bring joy to your life and that’s undeniable.

When it comes to domestic cat breeds and/or hybrids (domestic+wild) no two registries agree. For example, The International Cat Association (aka TICA) says there are 71 breeds but the Cat Fancier’s Association (aka CFA) says there are only 44 and then comes Fédération Internationale Féline (aka FIFe) saying no, there are only 43 breeds.


“From our point of view there can be as many cat breeds as the cats want.”


We are not here to set things straight for them because counting cat breeds is as useful as diet water. We simply present the domestic cat breeds based on their looks and personality without getting lost in details, in alphabetical order.
