Best American Cat Breeds

American Shorthair

Once established in their new country, these early progenitors of the breed continued to hunt vermin.

The American shorthair's ancestry dates back to early American history.

American Curl

This American cat breed derives its name from its ears, which spiral backwards.

The peculiar ear structure of these cats is caused by a natural genetic mutation. 


The breed originated from a successful cross between an African leopard cat and a domestic cat.

Bengals of the third generation have the disposition of a domestic house cat, but they retain the leopard's.
