What are cat breeds

🐾 In zoology, the term "breed" refers to a closely related group of animals with common physical characteristics and behaviors. In the fascinating world of cats, they can be divided into two large groups: purebred cats and mestizo, criollo, common or mixed-breed cats.

Breed cats are distinguished by meeting specific physical characteristics, backed by a valuable pedigree that records their family tree back four generations, as if they wore an invisible crown that certifies their distinguished heritage! On the other hand, mixed breed cats are just as special, full of love and surprises that win the hearts of those lucky enough to meet them. In their bright eyes and affectionate purrs lies the magic of feline companionship, regardless of lineage! πŸ’–πŸ±

How many breeds of cats are there

Determining the exact number of cat breeds can be tricky, as different organizations and associations may recognize and classify different cat breeds slightly differently. Also, new breeds may emerge over time due to selective crossings and the appearance of distinctive characteristics.

In general, there are around 70 to 80 cat breeds recognized by renowned feline associations, such as The International Cat Association (TICA), the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA), and the FΓ©dΓ©ration Internationale FΓ©line (FIFe). These breeds can vary in terms of appearance, temperament, and grooming needs.
