Not getting one, just curious what the biggest breed of domestic cat is (including ones bred with wildcats etc). I think they're called hybrids right?

I *think* the Savannah is the tallest cat, meaning from shoulder to floor. Not sure about heaviest cat breed, it's either Main Coon, Ragdoll, or something similar.

I think Maine Coons may be the largest.

I don't agree with mixing wild cats with domestics, but probably the Savannah is the largest of those.

A hybrid is just 2 breeds mixing, doesn't have to be wild.

In biological terms a hybrid is a mix between species, not between breeds.
