Pictures of pedigreed (aka 'purebred') cats are a good way to learn more about those breeds. These breed picture albums include photos submitted by both breeders, breed rescue people, and purebred pet owners.

The Bengal combines the exotic look and feel of the small forest-dwelling wild cats they descend from with the dependability and loving temperament of the domestic cat. For a walk on the wild side with an affectionate companion, you can't go wrong with a Bengal. Here are photos of exotic Bengal Cats, courtesy of their human companions.

The Birman cat is believed to have originated in Burma, and brought to France around 1919. Birmans have a great personality and will fit easily into most lifestyles; they are active and playful, but will also entertain themselves quietly if you are too busy to play with them.

As these Birman photos will attest, they are also extremely lovely cats.

Maine Coon Cat Picture Gallery

Equally at home with children, dogs, or older persons, the Maine Coon is an ideal pet, handily earning its status as the second most popular breed in America, as well as it's fond nickname, "The Gentle Giant." Who can resist? Once you've cast your eyes on the beauty of a Maine Coon, you may never look at cats the same way again. Enjoy this picture gallery of exquisite Maine Coon cats.

Everyone agrees that the Persian was high on the list of esteemed "possessions" by royalty, from the king of Persia to the kings and queens of England. In the late 19th century, North America discovered the Persian cat, and it soon reached the zenith of being the most popular cat in the United States, an honor it still holds today, throughout the world. Enjoy these photos of lovely Persian cats, provided by their owners.
