Cat Breeds

Cats are ideally suited to the Australian lifestyle. They enjoy the high life in a penthouse apartment but are equally happy in a large house with a backyard. Cats can be playful or peaceful, talkative or quiet, but they are always affectionate and love nothing more than someone who is happy to provide endless attention.

Yet a cat is not just a cat! Breeds vary in size, coat lengths, personalities, colours and coat patterns. No matter what you fancy, there is a cat to suit you and your lifestyle. Below is a list of links to Australia’s peak cat breeding clubs and associations as well as some terrific sites with cat breed information. Or if you want some more information on a particular breed, there is a comprehensive list on the right of this page.
