07 Rarest Cat Breeds Ever

From the adorable British Shorthair to the beautiful Turkish Angora these are 13 most rare & exotic cat breeds wild and domesticated.

7. The British Shorthair

Known as one of the most ancient breeds to exist, the British Shorthair remains as the most famous pedigreed breed in all of Great Britain. This was the cat that inspired another famous cat in literature, Alice in Wonderland’s very own Cheshire Cat and the “I Can Has Cheezburger?” meme. British shorthairs usually are seen sporting a blueish gray coat, but other variations such as tabby, and colorpoint are known to occur, and the well-known copper eyes.

6. The Tonkinese Cat

These adorable little cats are a true crossbreed between a Burmese and a Siamese cat. Their coats are known to come in four different color variations; natural, champagne, blue, and platinum. They can also be distinguished by their signature aquamarine colored eyes. The Tonkinese is now officially recognized as a natural breed as it was discovered that they’ve been around since the 14th century. This breed is especially playful and lively thanks to their parents and should only be considered by those who want an interactive feline friend.

5. The Caracal

This wild cat is known for being quite secretive which makes it rather difficult to observe and can be found living in the regions of Persia, Africa, the Middle East, and etc. What makes it even more difficult to study is that these cats are mostly nocturnal and typically live alone or sometimes in pairs. Caracals live off of a diet of small rodents, birds, and mammals but unfortunately, their habit is being threatened by agricultural expansion and desertification, which is why they’re classified as Least Concern. Female caracals are capable of reproducing a litter of around 1-6 kittens that usually go off on their own around 9 to 10 months, however, some females will stay behind for a little longer.

4. The Egyptian Mau

This short-haired breed of cat is recognized by its famous spots which make it one of the very few breeds of domesticated cats that have natural occurring spots. Fun fact: Egyptian Maus are the fastest breed of domesticated cats and have been recorded at running up to speeds of up to 30 miles per hour! Not only that but they’re known for having quite the musical voice and friendly personality. To give you an idea of how rare this breed is, it was noted in 2006 that there was only a total of 6,742 Maus that were registered with the Cat Fancier’s Association.

  1. I don't know y, I simply hate this Sphynx cat……. I have a Siamese Cat nd it's the best in this universe. It's very vocal nd damn playful, get a Siamese kitten rather than this hairless not-so-cat looking Sphynx

  2. That minskin looks wretched. I think it's TOTALLY UNETHICAL to breed cats with so many issues their ability to survive depends upon human care. I love all cats, it's not these extreme breed's fault they were born fucked up. But the people who do this are assholes and lack empathy.

  3. There's another rare cat you forgot to put on this list it's called The Calico calicos come in many different colors they come in yellow gold black and white really unfortunate I have a cat like that at my house it's an outside cat

  4. Turkish van is rarer than turkish angora. I went to van city (these cats' place) for have a turkish van kitten. And i found a turkish angora in my city's animal shelter. I live in turkey if you dont live in turkey its harder to find a turkish van…
