Cats are among the most popular pets in the world. Cats have been
domesticated since the Neolithic period, though the first certain signs
that they were adopted as pets came in ancient Egypt. Known for its
incredible breeding rate, cats are known to be excellent companions for
humans. They also have the ability to hunt down rats, vermin, and other
household animals that humans consider as pests.
Cats may have different looks and personalities, so people can choose
one depending on his own preference. Shy and introverted owners may opt
for the aloof American Curl, or maybe even the Scottish Fold. Those with
gregarious personalities who are outgoing will definitely prefer a Manx
or a Birman. These two breeds actually have traits similar to a dog. If
you are after a catís looks, prim and proper owners will do well with
the Siamese, while those who are rough by nature may want a Maine Coon.
Some cats are more rare and more beautiful than others. The
combination of rarity and beauty has brought about unbelievable prices
for this animal.
