6046351558593817346.jpgHistory: The American Bobtail cat originated about forty years ago when a cat with a naturally short tail was found on an Indian reservation. The people who found him kept him as a pet and bred him to their long tailed female. Some of the kittens of this union had short tails also, and they were the start of the American Bobtail breed. A careful breeding program that included Himalayans, Siamese, and Ragdolls has resulted in beautiful cats with great personalities that were accepted as a separate breed by the Cat Fanciers' Association in 2000 and allowed to pursue championship status in 2006 making this true American cat one of the newest Cat Breeds A-Z.

Chantilly cats are moderately calm cats that tend to blend nicely into households with children and other pets. They are shy around strange pets and people they do not know. They have a good balance between friendly and aloof. They tolerate owners who are gone for longer period of time, but still express their loyalty when their owners come home.

A good way to prevent hairballs is for pet owners to assist cats in grooming by performing daily or routine combing or brushing of the cat's fur. After brushing, wipe the cat's coat with a damp cloth to remove loose hairs. A veterinarian can give cat owners medicine to prevent hairballs and provide good advice for prevention.

Alley cats are the most common in North America. There are actually several different breeds, although most of us just refer to them as alley cats. They make good pets, although there are literally thousands of them in existence. Cats are known to breed more than any other pet, and they will continue to breed until they are stopped. Alley cats are among the most bred, as there are hundreds of thousands of cats that are homeless - and have nothing to do but breed.

That leads to the second consideration when choosing a cat breed. You need to think about how much time your family is going to be able to spend with the cat. If your new little friend doesn't at least get a couple of gentle touches and a cuddle every other day, it will go mad. Although how much attention is necessary has a lot to do with the breed. The other part of the time consideration is that some cats require more grooming maintenance such as bathing and brushing. A busy family should get a cat with short fur.
