I adore Persians also. I love all cats of course but if I had to pick any other breed that I would like to own it would be a British Shorthair or Oriental Shorthair.

I'm very attracted (and attached) to Persians, Exotics and British Shorthairs... but if I had to choose one it would be Persian. I LOVE Persians.
Another Persian lover here! :hearthrob: I love Exotics too especially since their shorter fur makes them easier to groom. I also like Ragdolls, Scottish Folds and Maine Coons but honestly I adore all cats. :lovecat2:

Siamese, I just love how talkative they seem to be (I think they are the huskies of cats) and I also really love their looks. Other than them I also like Norvegian Forest Cats. And one of my mom's colleagues has this really amazing British Shorthair, so even though I don't know much about them, they must be awesome too.

I was considering getting a Turkish Angora, until I saw an Abyssinian in person. Then it was all over. Love my abys and my DSH kitties.

I adore the Bengals obviously but really like the Abyssinian (friend of mine breeds) and to my recent discovery the Ocicats.

I have only had one breed of purebred cat and that is the Siberian. Great cats with wonderful, affectionate personalities.

I'm a mix so I love domestic long hairs, its not technically a breed but kind of is since its classified as one lol. I love that they can be unique in coloring and markings, and in personality. I have a grey/white full beard longhair that is a foot cat but overly affectionate when he wants to be, a tabby/white almost full beard longhair who is the most absolute suck will run ahead of you and just plop down onto his back to get pets and is a pure lap cat, and torbie longhair who has unique coloring/markings who loves love as we say. She head butts and really leans into those head scratches haha. Yes they aren't no fancy expensive breed, but to me these domestic short/long hair make the best cats <3

Bengals have always been a favorite, and a dream to own one day. And more recently; a Maine coon. I really want one. I love the way they look 😍

My favorite breed would be Maine coon, but I also would love to have an Abyssinian or a Somali one day. Most of the cats I have are just domestic short hairs though.

PERSIANS!!! However I love all cats (all animals, really).If I had to choose another breed it might be Norwegian Forest cat, Siberian or long haired Burmilla. I have friends who breed all of these cats and I adore their cats. A few years ago I even got to show a Siberian kitten for my friend.

What intrigues you about Orientals?

Maine Coons (see avatar, my kitten!) but honestly like others, I love all breeds, and domestics too.

Where do you think?


I think this bumper sticker speaks for itself.

My favorite coat pattern is brown tabby though. Regardless of breed.
