Top 10 Cutest Cat Breeds

Top 10 Cutest Cat Breeds

These cat breeds are super cute and underrated.

It seems that the only breeds anyone can actually recognize are those of dogs, cats really don't get enough recognition. There is just as much of a variety of cat breeds as there are of dog breeds, almost anyway, and they deserve love and recognition as well. So, here are the top 10 cat breeds I've deemed as the absolute cutest!

1. Exotic Persian

Exotic Persian cats are one of the cutest breeds in my opinion. Theses are the squished faced cats. The cats that perpetually look grumpy and disappointed. They're also super high-maintenance and believe you're supposed to cater to their every whim. Which, to be fair, you are.

2. Scottish Fold

Scootish Folds are super adorable because they're very unique. They're ears fold over, making them always appear to be begging you for something. They also always look a little bit sad, which, of course, only makes you love them more.

3. Himalayan

Himalayan cats are just magnificent and so prestigious. These cats are fluffy, deserve the best, and expect nothing but the best.

4. British Shorthair

I'm not sure what it is about these cats that makes them so adorable, but my roommate has tried to describe them as "fat and sassy." - Delaney Pulice. She's not wrong. They're pretty chubby and look like they're just a little bit too good for you. In all honesty, what cat isn't too good for us?

5. Maine Coon

These cats are particularly wonderful because they can be giant. I mean, giant. These cats can grown into the sizes of large dogs, which, of course, if everything we could all ever ask for in a cat. Who wouldn't want a giant cat that could probably double as a pillow?

6. Persian

These cats are only a little bit different from Exotic Persians, but there's a difference. Persians tend to have less squished face than Exotics, but every cat is different. The one above is a Silver Persian. He had to eat his food off of a plate because his flat face couldn't fit in a cat food bowl.

7. Munchkin

These tiny little guys never really grow much. Their legs are perpetually short and stubby, making them the ideal cats, because, if you had a choice, wouldn't you want your cat to be either giant like a Maine Coon or tiny like a Munchkin cat? Of course you would.

8. Siberian

These cats are just generally beautiful. They have long, shiny, fluffy coats and are just pretty cats. Plus, they look super cuddly, like they might purr for hours if you brushed them.

9. British Longhair

Another just simply beautiful cat. When you see those posts online that say "This cat is prettier than I am," yeah, that's these cats. They have long, soft coats as well that they like to keep clean. And as all cats do, they look like they're just a little bit above us and we have to cater to them.

10. Ragdoll

Finally, we have Ragdoll cats. These cats look a bit like fluffier Siamese cats. Which, let's face it, Siamese cats aren't necessarily the cutest. However, if you just add a lot of fluff, because the fluffier the better, they become much cuter.

If You Have Beef With The 'Climate Catrastrophe' Of 2030, You Need To Go Vegan

"This is not about remote science; it is about where we live and work, and it gives us a cue on how we might be able to contribute to that massive change, because everyone is going to have to be involved," Dr. Dedra Roberts.


Recently, the UN released a statement saying that our planet only has until 2030 to stem catastrophic climate change. This statement further goes on to say how in just 12 years, the rising temperature could exceed 1.5 C.

Yes, we might see headlines like this every day, but this is scary.

That's 12 years away from today, but if you really think about it—it's not a lot of time.

However, there are many ways that you can help make a difference and combat climate change.

One of these is living a vegan lifestyle.

Before you roll your eyes or think that I'm about to shove this diet down your throat, just hear me out. As a vegan myself, I've heard and witnessed a lot of criticism on the diet itself, such as that it "doesn't provide a sufficient amount of particular nutrients in your diet," or that "it's too expensive," or even that there's no way it can help climate change.

I'm here to tell you that all of this is wrong, especially the last one.

Climate change has been affecting us for years now, and it's slowly starting to become worse within each day that passes. Scientists have been warning us that as a society, we need to step up and take action so that we don't have to watch our planet slowly crumble. And ironically, one of these methods of action is by pursuing a vegan diet.

There have been many studies that show how animal agriculture is one of the leading causes of climate change. Tulane University did a recent study that shows that meat, dairy, and egg-consumption is responsible for approximately 84% of food-related greenhouse gas emissions in the U.S. In order to feed farmed animals, forests, which absorb greenhouse gasses, are cut down to supply land to grow the crops and to pasture them, which is linked to 75% of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazonian rainforest.

Animal agriculture also contributes to water consumption and pollution. One study shows that in order to house approximately 70 billion animals annually for human consumption, a third of the planet's land surface, as well as sixteen percent of freshwater, is devoted to growing livestock. This essentially means that a third of worldwide grain production is used to feed livestock.

However, following a vegan diet can help support the fight against climate change. According to the Environmental Defense Fund, if each American replaced meat from their diet with plant-based foods at one meal per week, the carbon dioxide savings would be the same as taking more than half a million cars off U.S. roads. Plant-based foods only make up three percent of diet-related emissions, with legumes being the least harmful to the planet. If more people could switch to a vegan diet, this could dramatically help our planet.

If we can try to start thinking more about the choices we make on what we eat, we can curb these scary statistics about our planet being in danger. I understand that not everyone can follow these diets or afford them, but the tiniest steps toward change still can help. Instead of relying on meat for protein, switch to other foods that are rich in protein, such as beans, tofu, quinoa, etc. Prepare your own meals instead of eating out at restaurants. Focus on whole foods that are unprocessed, such as vegetables, fruits, starches, and nuts, since they are usually the cheapest ones in the market. Consider buying in bulk, since big packages of food are priced at a better value compared to smaller containers.

At the end of the day, Earth is our home. And if you've got beef (pun intended) with what these scientists are calling climate change catastrophe, then maybe you should consider switching up a few things in your diet.
