However, there are plenty of other exotic species that most people never knew existed.

1)The Ocicat- This breed was developed in America by crossing an Abyssinian, Siamese, and American Shorthair.

2)Balinese- A cross between a domestic longhair and Siamese.

3)The Peterbald- This breed stems from a mutation found in cats in St. Petersburg, Russia, in 1994. It was bred with the Oriental Shorthair and Siamese.

4)Sphynx- Another hairless cat breed, only this time it’s not because of an underlying gene but instead because they are naturally that way! While most people find them ugly or creepy, I think they are adorable!

5)American Wirehair- A mix between American Shorthairs and domestic longhairs, this breed has bristly-looking fur with a unique crinkled texture.

6)Russian Blue- This breed was initially brought to North America from Russia in the mid-1800s, and most of them were directly descended from a single female. Another distinguishing characteristic of this breed is its vivid green eyes.

7)Ragamuffin- Another cross between American Shorthairs and domestic longhairs, this rare breed has a very plush coat that is most notable for having hairless feet and faces, as well as their long legs.

8)Burmilla- A mix between Burmillas (a Burmese/Chinchilla cross) and Chinchillas themselves, dark brown spots on a lighter brown coat, with most having either a silver or gold sheen.

9)Munchkin- These cats were created by breeding Manxes and sphynx together in the ’80s to develop short-legged cats. They also sometimes have extra toes on their hind feet (known as polydactylism).

10)Havana Brown- Originating in Australia, they are most commonly described as “mini tigers” because their appearance includes browns and black markings on a pale golden coat.

11)Scottish Fold- Originating from Scotland, they are most notably known for having folded ears (one can almost wholly fold down across their face). Like most other breeds on this list, most people find them cute or ugly.

12)Ragdoll- Despite their name, these cats were developed in California and most notably recognized by their extraordinarily long and fluffy fur. However, I’ve seen some that look surprisingly short-haired at times.

13)Khao Manee- Originating from Thailand, this breed most notably has very light cream coats with dark points (like Siamese). They often have blue eyes and green or odd eyes, most commonly associated with deafness and blindness. These cats are so rare that many people consider them semi-mythical creatures because most Westerners never get the chance to see one in person.

14)Minskin- This breed most notably has a very short and plush fur coat. Like most other breeds on this list, most people find them cute or ugly.

15)Ojos Azules- Perhaps the most exciting name on this list, these cats more often than not have deep blue eyes and most notably came from crossing short-haired domestic longhairs with Persian cats (so it’s no wonder they look like Persians). The most commonly have green eyes, though, which none of the other cats on this list do.

16)American Curl- These cats were developed by breeding American Shorthairs and LaPerm together in the 70s.

17)Ginger Cat- Sometimes named because of their orange fur, this name is often taken from a slang term meaning redheads. In most cases, it’s just another way to describe Tennessee Folds, but in some cases, they have markings that resemble tigers or other wild cat species!

18)Scottish Straight- These cats certainly look like most Scottish Folds except for one thing: their ears stay upright. This creates a different appearance than most other breeds on this list and is likely why they were given a new breed status instead of being considered the same as Scottish Folds. 19)Munchkin Longhair- Combining Munchkins with domestic longhairs, most often, most people find the most similar breed to these cats would be most likely- Persian cats.

20)Serengeti- Another mix between a Siamese and a Persian cat. Like most other breeds on this list, you commonly have a very short and plush coat.

21)Japanese Bobtail- A bobtail cat most notably recognized by its lack of a tail in some cases (others have little nub tails). They come in Japanese patterns, including sesame, sanshoolight, Californian harvest gold, or classic American tabby. Most notable for their oversized ears that resemble that of an Elf. 22)Savannah- Developed from African Servals and domestic cats, most Savannah’s most notably have leopard-like patterns, and many people most commonly describe them as looking like a “wild cat.” The most commonly have a short-haired coat, but some can be longhaired.

23)Bengal- A mix between an Asian Leopard Cat and a domestic cat, most Bengals most often have brown stripes on their coats that come from the Asian Leopard Cats and most commonly have other colors thrown into the mix. To create beautiful calicos or tortoiseshell cats. 24)Himalayan- Developed from crossing Persian breeds with Siamese breeds in America in the early 1900s. Seal Point (a combination of black, gray browns) with Red Points (lilac, fawn, cream colors) most often found, but most people will most commonly notice the Persian-like face, which distinguishes it from other breeds on this list. 25)RagaMuffin was developed by crossing Ragdoll cats with American Shorthairs, most notably made for their calm temperaments (not known for being cuddly like most other cat breeds). They most often have coats that are silky and soft! 26)Savannah- The most notable thing about Savannahs is their tall ears that resemble most likely some African or Asian wildcat species. This breed gets its name probably because its most common ancestor is a serval, though to be more specific, a black-footed serval.

27)Toyger- A most recent addition to this list, most Toygers most commonly get their name because of their most striking feature, most often resembling Tiger Stripes. The most frequently come in seal point, chocolate point, and lilac point (because it’s a cross between a Bengal and an American Shorthair).

28)Shorthaired Silver Tabby- Most people who see these cats usually say how much they resemble Maine Coons with fine coats that are black or dark gray in most cases. 29)Havana Brown- This colorpoint cat is most famously known for its brown coat, but unlike other breeds on this list, they also have white legs, belly, and chin patches! In some cases, most Havana Browns closely resemble Ragdolls, but like most cats on this list, they most often have Persian-like features, which differentiates them from other breeds.

30)Minskin- Most likely a mixture between Munchkins and Sphynx (with hairless genes) and most commonly described to look like a mini Sphynx because of their hairlessness and eyes that appear almost catlike. The only difference would be most cases have very short legs compared to most cat breeds with the same color points.

31)Siberian- Even though Siberians are not housecats, it’s hard not to include them since they can grow up to 30 pounds or more! The most commonly come in their natural colors, such as gray.
