Any cat can be a great companion, but some cat breeds seem to be more popular than others. One of the most popular breeds is the American Shorthair cat. Curiously, another popular cat breed is the Maine Coon, a cat that can often grow up to 20 pounds in size.

Not surprisingly, siamese cats are popular but so is an¬†Abyssinian cat. If you’re interested in adopting a cat, worry less about a particular breed and more about whether the cat matches your personality the best. The best cat is the one that you can love unconditionally regardless of its breed, color, or other superficial differences.
