Reason why I chose cat breeds...
I'm not a fan of purebred or breeders for obvious reasons BUT I do find cat breeds complex and fascinating. All too often cats are deemed as Domest Short Haired which erks me because there are cat breeds and while many are mixes I feel that people understand cats a bit more if they understand their heritage. We get a lot of Maine Coon's at the shelter that get mislabeled as Long Haired Tabbys, etc.

Yesterday I finally picked up a book on cats.. and I'm fascinated at the stunning varieties and backgrounds of cats around the world. So hence.. today's post and give-a-way. (Here's the book I picked up used for $5!)

Hey Nicole,
I like the ca t breed idea - its a bit more of a challenge for some of us! Thankfully I have my trusty Cat Encyclopedia. I'll try to find some new answers.
1. La Perm (according to my book was recognized as a breed by the T.I.C.A. in 1996 - not sure when your book was published)
2. Sphynx is the best I can come up with although the book references Mexican hairless cats I don't know if the still exist
3. Ocicat - officially recognized in 1986

Thanks Nicole, I learned something!
