Cat Breed Profiles

Cat Breed Profiles. Like with pedigree dogs there are many different pedigree cat breeds. On this page we will give you a list of cat breeds, information about cat breeds and pictures of cat breeds.

Pedigree cats can be put into four different categories:

Long haired. Longhaired cats are a commitment and can be hard work. Nevertheless if you have the time and effort the extensive grooming is worth it and you will have a stunning cat. Look at some of the pedigree cat profiles below.



Semi-Long haired. Semi long haired cats are also a commitment. They have slightly shorter hair than Persians for example but they are often more agile, independent and larger therefore harder to groom. There are some stunning semi long haired breeds so lets take a look at some of the cats that fall into this category.

American Curl



Maine Coon

Norwegian Forest




Turkish Van

Shorthaired. Short haired cat breeds fill the bulk of our list and are alot easier to maintain from a grooming perspective. There are some fantastic short haired cats with very unique personalities so lets take a look at some of the breeds that fall into this bracket.
