Every cat is the most gorgeous kitty on the globe in our hearts. However, certain extraordinarily attractive purebreds will always compel us to exclaim, “Hello lovely!” based only on their visual good looks and distinctive features.

Which are the most attractive cat species? 

  1. Turkish Angora
  2.  Russian Blue 
  3.  Persian
  4.  Siamese
  5.  Ocicat
  6.  Cornish Rex
  7.  Bombay
  8.  The Maine Coon

“The term attractive is subjective, hence judging cats is incredibly difficult. While “attractive” may mean everything from “pretty” to “dazzling,” the most beautiful cats must be elegant and/or spectacular, according to her. Here are some of the most attractive cat species that you can find in general. 

1. Turkish Angora

The longhaired Turkish Angora is beautiful and graceful with a rich history, with a thick neck ruff, silky coat, long full tail, and tufted ears.

Long-haired cats from Persia and Armenia (Eastern Turkey) made their way to Europe in the 16th century. Buffon’s Histoure Naturell published an image of the breed in 1756, and the breed arrived in the United States in the late 1700s.

Persians and Angoras were originally bred together. To maintain pure white Angoras, the Turkish government began a breeding program at the Ankara Zoo in the 1900s.

In the 1960s, Americans purchased cats directly from zoos, and the breed’s popularity soared in the United States.

2. Russian Blue 

The Russian Blue’s beauty and flair comes from its light blue, silver-tipped double coat, which is as velvety as a teddy bears. She describes the cat as “an elegant cat with a slim body—fine-boned yet strong.”

The Russian Blue’s sleek, wedge-shaped head is accented by brilliant emerald, green eyes. The breed, which originated in northern Russia, was virtually extinct in England after World War II.

However, in the late 1960s, American breeders acquired cats from Scandinavia and started a 30-year quest to restore the Russian Blue to its former glory. Blues now have an obvious beauty that is heightened by their intellect and lively nature.

3. Persian

This breed exemplifies ethereal beauty. A white Persian with dazzling, clear copper eyes, a beautiful smile, and a thick, flowing coat free of fading is especially stunning.

Persians were pampered pets in the 1800s England, prized for their stocky bodies and long coats, and were developed over time by breeders to the breed we know today.

With huge shoulders, strong bone structure, and short legs, modern Persian cats have a defined shapely physique.

The CFA’s Best Cat of 2014 was a calico Persian, despite the fact that a specific ‘luxury’ cat food company features a shimmering white Persian in their commercials.

4. Siamese

The most well-known feline beauty—even non-cat people can identify a Siamese! — the very vocal, satin-coated Siamese is “the pinnacle of balance and elegance.

. Siamese ‘color points,’ with their sleek, tubular bodies, enormous, pointed ears, and real triangular heads, were the cats of royalty in ancient Siam (now Thailand), serving as palace guards.

The first Seal Point Siamese made their debut in 1871 at England’s inaugural National Crystal Palace Show, when a writer remarked on this “unnatural, nightmarish type of cat. The cat, however, created a stir among showgoers who were used to seeing British Shorthairs.

5. Ocicat

Anyone for animal prints? This soft spotted beauty resembles a jungle cat, yet it is an example of a breed formed via a hybrid mixing.

In 1964, a person crossed a Siamese with an Abyssinian in the hopes of producing a ticking tabby-pointed kitten. Tonga, the kitten, was born with a striking golden spotted pattern, and the fully matured Ocicat attained CFA Championship status in 1987 after 23 years and the addition of a few American Shorthairs to add silver colors.

The real Ocicat is a sleek, muscled athlete with an arched neck and black thumbprint patches scattered across a lighter color coat with the idea of a traditional tabby, rather than ‘mackerel’ pattern.

6. Cornish Rex

The Cornish Rex may resemble a ballet dancer with its “marcel waving” coat and thin, leggy build—all straight posture and arches. However, its delicate grace conceals a powerful physique. The Cornish Rex is the raciest beauty of all the cat breeds, and it constantly seems to be in motion.

The Cornish Rex has incredibly silky fur that is similar to that of a rabbit or lamb, and the cats have inherent body warmth, making them “excellent shoulder and lap cats,” according to Joan.

High cheekbones, a broad nose, oval eyes, and large ears combine to give the breed an attractive appearance. The Cornish Rex is a highlight in any beauty contest, thanks to its kittenish behaviors and a coat that demands to be stroked.

7. Bombay

The Bombay, like the Ocicat, looks like a jungle cat. It was created in 1958 by a single person who desired a cat that looked like a small black panther.

Bombays are a somewhat unusual breed that resulted from a mix between a short, muscular Burmese and a black American Shorthair with rich copper eyes.

The Bombay looks like a mini-panther with its medium-length, muscular frame and short nose on its round head, and his dark coat highlights every ripple of his panther-like motions.

8. The Maine Coon

The Maine Coon’s size, structure, and lovely fluffy coat never fail to elicit a gasping cry of astonishment from an audience during a performance.

The males are extremely beautiful, enormous cats with a rectangular body shape and a long full tail, some weighing over 20 pounds.

The practical beauty of the Maine Coon recalls its heritage as a New England barn cat. It has a shaggy draping guard coat that repels snow and rain, as well as a soft, thick undercoat.

Short thick down hair kept ears warm and paw pads pleasant, whereas ear and toe tufts kept ears warm and paw pads comfortable. For increased sleeping warmth, the massive tail loops around. 

Final words
