Greetings feline aficionados! Skye Blake here, sniffing out info on all kinds of cat breeds.
I’m not a fancy feline but sure have a lot of relatives who are!
Let’s discover more…
Who Is Skye Blake?
Skye Blake, Cat Info Detective, is a curious cat researcher (not a veterinarian or breeder) who sniffs out expert, reliable sources about cats, studies their information, then passes it on to you!
Sometimes there’s not enough evidence for easy answers, so Skye gives you all sides, explains the situation as thoroughly and clearly as possible, and links you to experts on each page.
All sources are given at the bottom of each page so you can do more snooping…
Breeds of Felis Sylvestris Catus
There are so many of us fancy felines… too many types to list here.
Instead, I’ve found some good trails you can follow to satisfy your curiosity.
Most breeders participate in cat shows where you can see the cats and talk to them in person.
There are other reputable breeders, but you must investigate carefully to be sure their cats are healthy and of sound stock.
The breeders they list must register with them.

It’s easy to get lost in the beauty and fascinating histories of these purebreds!
Good Breed Websites

Cat Breed Groups & Pages – Facebook
Here are a couple Facebook groups you might find interesting about different types of fun felines.
I’m not endorsing them, just listing for your convenience.
Rare Cat Breeds (public)
Tuxedo Cat Lovers (public)
There are many more specific breed Facebook groups… just search for the breed you want.
You’ll find cat lover groups, breeder pages and rescue groups.
A note of caution: be sure any breeder is legitimate… there are many scams out there.
Joining specific breed groups and reading their posts will give you an idea of breeder reputations.
People take my gorgeous cousins to these places to show off their stunning feline beauty and win both ribbons and bragging rights!
They even have kitty obstacle courses! Frankly, we just LOVE the attention.

Here are some great books about the various breeds of fabulous felines…

Check descriptions and reviews carefully for any products you wish to buy… quality, sizes, colors, etc., can’t be guaranteed by anyone but the manufacturer.
Sources used on this website are either primary or secondary.
Primary sources are always preferable and have the most reliable information because they’re original and directly referenced.
Scientific abstracts and data are good examples of primary sources.
Secondary sources are weaker because they usually consist of opinions or articles that give no sources of their own.
However, sometimes they refer to primary sources.
When I use secondary sources, most are those with some authority, such as veterinarian or cat behaviorist books and articles.
