According to reports, the Ashera cat, which can cost up to $125,000, is the most expensive breed of cat in the world. Due to the fact that domestic shorthair cats reproduce naturally and unaffected by humans, they are among the most intellectual cat breeds. Trupanion asserts that domestics are virtually always social, despite the fact that they can be animated, friendly, calm, talkative, docile, or peaceful. These cats are nice and kind by nature, despite not being extremely communicative. Cats normally don't need haircuts unless their coat is matted.

Eight cat breeds like the water: Sphynx, Maine Coon, Turkish Van, British Shorthair, Siamese, Burmese, and Selkirk Rex. The American Wirehair, Korat, Singapura, and Cymric cat breeds are among of the least affectionate. If you just want to get one cat, getting another one won't make it feel too neglected. The breed of cat with the longest history and highest adoption rate is the Persian cat. The Arabuko-Sokoke Forest Preserve in Kenya is the only place where the diminutive wildcat known as the Sokoke cat can be found.

Shorthair cats are often the most affordable breed across the country, despite some apparent regional pricing variations. These cats are nice and kind by nature, despite not being extremely communicative. The shorthair cat is a fantastic choice for a family pet or for someone looking for a loyal buddy because of its placid demeanour. They are generally in good health and live longer. Domestic shorthair cats typically live for 12 to 14 years or more. This is not to say that children can't be injured or become ill at the most inconvenient times or that they don't require routine wellness care, like yearly checkups and vaccinations.

Males weigh 11–15 pounds, compared to 6–12 pounds for females. A domestic shorthair cat has a 15–20 year lifespan. Domestic shorthairs' eyes come in an apparently infinite variety of hues and patterns, including hazel, amber, green, and blue. Short-haired cats typically slough off more than long-haired cats. Your home will be covered in even more hair. Hair all over the place is irritating, but dead hair can also be highly problematic for your cat. It's a common misconception that people with cat allergies are also sensitive to cat fur and that cats with long hair are more allergenic than cats with short hair. But this is not the case.

Keep your cat safe at home for a number of benefits (on your property). When a cat is kept inside, there is less chance of it getting wounded or lost (by being struck by a car or attacked by a dog, for example). Five cats is the maximum number that experts advise against owning. If you adore cats that much, the absolute most you should own is six. There is no way past this point. This is true because no one, not even a household, should be expected to care for more than six cats.

This animal has evolved into a wonderful human companion because of its capacity for rodent hunting. Science has been devoted to figuring out the beginnings of domestication and when these two species first became connected; this amount of time has been spent studying the relationship between cats and humans. After a cat skeleton was discovered in a tomb in southern Cyprus beside a human cadaver in 2004, the magazine Science reported that the first felines to live alongside humans.

Cats travelled a tremendous distance during the imperial expansions of ancient civilizations like the Romans and the Vikings, from the Mediterranean Sea in ancient Egypt to the frigid Atlantic shores of Europe. Researchers from the University of Cambridge have found that the African wildcat is the origin of all domestic cats after studying feline fossils (Felis silvestris lybica, to give it its proper name). The Encyclopedia of Life's flora and fauna expert confirms that "hybridization with domestic cats," which has badly harmed this species, has made it more difficult to spot these wild animals recently.
