The 11 Most Popular Cat Breeds are listed in reverse order, including a link to a listing of 42 of the most well-known cat breeds. Note: Although the domestic cat, aka "moggie," or mixed breed cat, is not recognized by cat registries as a breed, domestic cats are by far the most popular type of cat, and as such, deserve mention here.

3. Cat Parenthood Pictures

Dedicated cat lovers consider our cats as members of our families, and take cat parenting as seriously as parents of human children. Indeed, for some of us, cats are our only children. Our readers share here pictures and stories of their cat "kids," as well as describing how they became cat parents in the first place. Cat parents are encouraged to share their cat pictures here. You may contribute to any or all of the cat parenthood picture galleries.
