When it comes to wacky behaviors and appearances, mixed breed cats are completely unique and surprisingly common among pet owners. According to Werber, the most popular breeds of cat are the domestic shorthair and domestic longhair, which include the genes of a variety of breeds. These one-of-a-kind cats will possess their own individual personalities and crazy quirks all their own.
While we all love our cats for their unique looks and quirky behaviors, its important to learn as much as you can about your potential pet before deciding to take it home.
“Unfortunately, many people do not do their homework and research behaviors, medical issues and maintenance that are specific to the breeds they are attracted to,” said Marilyn Krieger, certified cat behavior consultant and founder of The Cat Coach. “After they have the cat for a period of time, many realize that the cat, although cool looking, is too difficult for them to live with and the cats are surrendered or returned to breeders.”
