Some of you might have them some of you want to have them. Be it cat, dog, hamster, guinea pig or fish, we all have a favourite animal that we dream to keep as a pet. My new year's resolution this year was to convince my parents to have a cat. I adore cats. I think they are the cutest little furry being.
While I was thinking about getting a cat, I looked upon the internet for the type of cat that I want to have as a pet. That moment a strange realisation hit me, we can name all the breeds of dog from the back of the head, but the same rule doesn't apply to cats.
When describing our favourite type of cat, we usually define them based on their features still we don't know the actual breed they belong too. Therefore, here's a list of few of the most popular cat breeds, so that you don't have to describe them anymore by their colour or pattern when you go to the pet store to get your furry (or not so furry) companion.

Scottish fold, in my opinion, is the cutest little kittens. Their round head and round eyes make them look adorable.
