The West Coast of the United States is where the ragdoll, an American cat breed, was created in the 1960s. These felines are now renowned for their loving and sociable personalities.
The ragdoll generally appears to appreciate any form of human interaction, in contrast to many cat breeds who have a tendency to be picky about when and how they're held, and has a propensity to go limp when carried.
The Balinese and Siamese are closely related in many ways, but the Balinese is distinguished by its plush longhaired coat.
The Balinese was formerly known as a longhaired Siamese cat since it first appeared as a spontaneous gene mutation in a litter of Siamese cats.
Another American cat breed, the Selkirk Rex, got its distinctively curly coat as a result of a naturally occurring genetic mutation.
Crosses between Persian, British, and exotic shorthairs have helped to produce the breed. These cats typically have a very gentle and pleasant disposition, and they get along well with both people and other animals.
Despite being created specifically to resemble a little black panther, this American cat breed turns out to be a much more lovable and friendly home pet.
The Bombay cat, which was created in Kentucky in the 1970s, is descended from black American shorthair and sable-colored Burmese cats.
