Buying Small Vs. Large Cat Breeds

Shopping for a breed of cat is not an easy task. There are so many different breeds to choose from. There are long hair cats, short hair, hairless, large, small, medium size, orange, black, white, Siamese, tabby, and much more. Depending on what you want, however, you really have to decide between a small cat breed or a large cat breed. Small cat breeds seem to be the choice for many people. The reasons for this are that small cat breeds don’t eat as much, they actually tend to live longer, they are typically more loving than larger cat breeds, they’re less aggressive and they make great pets even if you have very small living quarters. While some may like large breeds, small cat breeds may be better suited to being pets.

Finding A Small Cat Bread Breeder

Some breeders offer both small and large breeds. Some only have small breeds and some only large. Find a breeder that deals only in small breeds if that’s what you’re looking for. The reason for this is that you always want to find a breeder that specializes in the type of cat you’re looking for. It’s like the saying goes: Jack of all trades, master of none; find a breeder that is a master of small cat breeds and you’ll have a better chance of getting a healthy cat that will live a long life as your new best friend.

Types of Small Cats

There are many types of cats that fall into the category of small cat breeds. Talk to the breeder about your needs, such as what type of cat you’re looking for and the breeder will likely be able to tell you what type of cat would be best for you. For example, you might tell the breeder that you’re looking for a small cat breed that’s good with children, that’s better suited for an apartment, that will live a long time, that will be more behaved, etc. The breeder should be able to point you in the right direction as to the perfect small cat breed for you.

When you finally find a small cat breed that you like, you’ll be glad to know that they’re often less expensive than larger breeds. You’ll be able to enjoy your pet for a long time and you’ll know it will be healthy, especially if you went to a breeder, and you’ll know that it will be a loving animal; which is exactly what you were looking for.
