The UK’s Most Popular Cat Breed
With so many breeds to choose from it can be hard to know what cat to get. As well as the purebred cats it’s also worth considering a crossbreed, these are known as ‘moggy’s’.
Wondering what the most popular cat in the UK is? There are many worthy contenders but once cat has remained the favourite for decades. The UK’s favourite breed of cat is….the Persian. The notorious Persian has been the world’s most popular breed of cat since 1871.
So why are Persian’s so popular? One of the first things to note about a Persian is they have a lovely nature. They are gentle cats that are pretty easygoing. They are great with kids and people, although they don’t always enjoy being handled too much and must be handled gently.
Persians are quiet cats, they don’t make much noise and are happy to laze around during the day. They are loyal and affectionate cats that make wonderful pets. One of the reasons why owners love them so much is because they are so loving.
They have a distinctive squashed face and a very short muzzle. However, the Persian is probably best known for its lovely, long, soft fur. As they have such gorgeous fur, Persians do require a fair amount of grooming to keep their coat in top condition. Don’t get a Persian if you don’t have the time to groom them on a daily basis.
Many people are happy to take on this responsibility because they love the nature of Persian cats so much. Plus they look stunning after they have been properly groomed.
