    I don't know if I could pick one favorite breed... If I had to pick a favorite maybe the Turkish Van. I like the history and myth behind how they got their coloring and the fact that they like the water is cool.

    That's a hard one. If I HAD to choose it would be Persian. I also adore British Shorthairs. I call them the teddy bears of the cat world. My list would be pretty long if I added all of them :tongue:

    Never thought I would say it but the Devon Rex. My old clinic owner had them and they are such unique little guys. [​IMG]

    I would have said Turkish Angora, until I met my first Abyssinian. Then it was all over.

    That’s a tough one! Honestly, I love all cats. Probably my favorite registered breeds would be Abyssinian and Maine Coon. I also like Arabian Maus, but they aren’t recognized by CFA/TICA.

    For most of my Life, I'd have said, "Siamese," unhesitatingly, but having known Bob better than five years now, I'd have to say that I just Love Norwegian Forest Cat. As big as a pillow, as soft as a pillow and as smart as... ooohhh... they're so big and soft!

    My current favorite is a Chartreux mainly because I just find them stunning to look at.

    If I am forced to choose, it would be the Persian (Of course!) but truthfully I love them all and would have one of each breed if possible.

    I don't know about favorites (I've never had a purebred cat at all), but I'd really like to have a (seal-point) Birman someday. They're so cute, and they look so soft! And those little white paws... I could go on all day.

    Maine Coon is at the top of the list for both myself and my husband.
    Several more but the MC is the only one we are seriously considering to add to our family sometime in the future.
