Do you want to own a cat but you don't know which breed makes for the best pet? Or, do you want to own a cat but you have no idea what to do with it? You can find all the information you need by searching online, including what breed will work best with your own personality.

One of the things you need to consider is if you want an outdoor or indoor cat. Outdoor cats are those that are smarter and tougher, something they need so they can survive. If the cat is small, you should keep it inside the house, so it doesn't become food for wild animals or big birds. If you own a tomcat, it's a great breed that survives well in the outdoors.

The Siamese: Siamese cats are a fickle breed, that will ask for your attention and you need to give it to them. They make plenty of noise and if you leave them on their own for long periods of time, they will tear up everything around them. While those are the downsides to owning a Siamese cat, it doesn't mean that they can't be great to own. This is especially true when you raise them from infancy.

In most cases, Siamese cats will have blue eyes and brown ears. You probably saw this breed if you've seen the movie "Lady and the Tramp". But, the cats in the movie were mean, not the usual type of a Siamese cat. In most cases, Siamese cats are an affectionate breed that likes people. When they ask for attention from their master, they will meow a lot, just like babies do when they cry.

The Persian Cat: this breed has been around for a very long time. Their coat is shinny and beautiful, with long hair. The good part about them is that they are friendly and soft, but they also have a chance of getting allergies or other health problems. When there are people around it will enjoy playing, but in most cases it's not a very playful race. They also enjoy beeing around other cats and will play with them. There are a lot of colours that might find their way on a cats fur, like white, brown, black or a mix of different colors. The Himalayan is a popular breed of Persian cats.

The Manx Breed: some of the things people know about this cat is that it lacks the tail or it has a stubby one. That's the downside of this breed of cats. In some cases the manx will have different parasites or worms, because it's not protected by the tail and it's not cleaned properly.

Still, the Manx is a good breed, so you shouldn't avoid it completely. These cats are quite playful and clever and they can even fetch things, just like a dog does when you play with him. They do love human company though, so they need them around. If you leave the house for longer periods of time you should probably have another cat to play with the Manx, because they dislike being alone. If there are children in the house, then it's the perfect environment for them.

What you read above is just three of the types of cat breeds that you can choose from. There are many more cat breeds available to you, and you can choose the one that fits your way of life best. While most cats are intelligent and social, some of them are more of the loner type. In most cases, the cat is the one that decides when she needs attention, not the master.
