Maine Coon Many believe that Maine coons were born in harsh winter conditions. This would explain why they are all natural cold-weather wear. Maine coons have dense, water-resistant hair and tufted paws.

Balinese  Balinese cats are well-known for their stunning blue eyes and pointed, silky coats, much like their Siamese cousin. Balinese cats are a result of a genetic mutation in Siamese which causes them to have longer, more silky hairs. 

Persian Persians are perhaps best known for their glamorous, long-haired, bright eyes, and smushed, beautiful faces. They are beloved for their beautiful looks. They are also charming and affectionate. Persian cats were born to be cuddlers. They are calm, affectionate and inactive. 

Norwegian Forest Cat The Norwegian forest cat, also known as a "Wegie", is a natural breed. It can be traced back to the Vikings. It is believed that Wegies were born in colder climates, which is why they have dense, water-resistant hairs. You shouldn't bathe your Wegie unless it is dirty or you have to wash it because of medical necessity 

Himalayan You are 100% correct if you think Himalayan cats look like a Persian cat and a Siamese cat. Himmies are a mix of both the popular breeds. This results in a beautiful cat with the eye colors and coat of a Siamese, and long, silky Persian hair. Although Himalayans can be playful and sweet, don't let their laid back personalities fool you. 

Turkish Angora cat Turkish Angoras originated in Turkey around the 15th century. Originally, they were considered white cats with blue eyes or green eyes. For many years, all long-haired cats were known as Angoras. It's now common for Turkish Angoras to have a wide range of colors and patterns. Other cats can also have similar colors or hair colors. 

Birman The Birman cat's coat is available in six different colors and two patterns. However, all four of their paws have white "mittens", and they have blue eyes. Although the history of the Birman cat remains largely unknown, it is believed that they are the result of Burmese cats being brought to France and mixed together with Siamese cats. 

LaPerm The LaPerm, a breed with a distinctive permed appearance, is perhaps best known for its 1982 origin. The LaPerm has long, curled hair that curls around the neck, ears and tail. 

Somali cat The Somali is a long-haired variant of the Abyssinian. The breed was probably developed by breeders who introduced long-haired breeds to their programs during World War II. Somali cats were not considered to be a distinct breed until the 1960s, 1970s. 

Scottish Fold A genetic mutation has been continually bred into the Scottish fold, and this is what gives rise to the most distinctive characteristic of the Scottish fold--its flat ears and folded appearance.  A Scottish fold should be bred with a British Shorthair to preserve its appearance and strengthen the gene pool. 

Ragdoll The ragdoll's single, silky coat is medium-to-long in length. The ragdoll lacks an undercoat of fur, similar to Balinese cats. It is meant to be less matting. To avoid matting, this breed needs to be brushed at least twice per week. 

Siberian  Siberian cats are a forest cat that is native to the snowy Russian region. They need their luxurious triple-layered coat to keep them warm. The triple coat consists of three layers: the shorter, dense, downy undercoat, the layer in middle of which is slightly longer and the outer layer, or guard hairs, that is longer. Siberian cats can have any color and any pattern in their coat. 

Turkish Van The Turkish Van is an all white cat that has colored markings on its tail and face. This distinctive color pattern is often called a "van", even though it can be found in other cat breeds. The season determines the Turkish Van's natural environment, which is subject to extreme temperatures. Therefore, the Turkish Van's hair color changes with the seasons.
