Best American Cat Breeds

Bengal cat

The first cats of this breed originated from a successful cross between a domestic cat and an African leopard cat.

Bengals have the temperament of a house cat, but their leopard spots and marbling are just as beautiful as ever.

Exotic Shorthair

The exotic shorthair resembles a Persian cat after a trim.

The primary distinction is the reduced grooming time required for exotic shorthairs.

Maine Coon

This American cat breed can trace its modern roots back to Maine. 

The weekly grooming session is all that's required to keep these kitties happy and healthy.


The ragdoll is a uniquely American breed that was created in the 1960s on the West Coast.

These cats now have a reputation for being extremely sociable and loving.
