Any cat can make a great pet. However if you have plenty of money and need to spend it, consider buying an exotic cat breed.

Such exotic cat breeds can range in cost from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars a piece. While people often buy exotic cats for the status, buying a specific cat breed can be useful if you want the specific look or behavior of a certain cat. For example, Ragdoll cats are expensive because they’re so docile and friendly, which makes them predictable and perfect for families with small children.
