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.

Pets Are More Than Just Furry Animals And They Shouldn't Be Overlooked

People who say they hate animals should stop being so negative and start looking at the more positive things that animals bring to society.

Pets are a great asset to a family. They help with so many things and they are so smart. Many people think that having a pet is the worst thing and that they are so expensive and all they do is make messes.

To the people that think that: stop being so negative. Everyone has the right to speak their opinion. But for those who do, we just have to remember that it is only an opinion and it isn't necessarily right or wrong.

Pets are great for many things like being therapeutic. Any kind of pet is a great (and free) listener. They don’t judge you; they just listen, and then afterward, you can be snuggled up by them.

Dogs especially are great because they help with many workers in need, such as police when they help sniff out drugs. Dogs also help people that are blind to guide them where they need to go. They are therapeutic for war veterans who have PTSD or who are just feeling lonely after being home.

Pets may be a lot of work, but they are caring and they can sense when something is wrong. Pets are a lot of work most of the time, but just think of it this way: the pets we have are like children and should be treated like children. So if you hate pets then you hate children. To me, you can’t like one or the other because they should be treated the same and not with abuse.

Children can learn a lot of things from any kind of pet that they have. Some of the things they can learn are responsibilities and helping with motivation. Learning responsibilities at a young age can be very positive for a child. One of them is getting up and feeding the pet, because if you don’t eat, the animal doesn’t eat either.

People who say they hate animals should stop being so negative and start looking at the more positive outlook animals bring to society.

16 Ways College Students Can Go Green

Besides Recycling.

With Earth Day this upcoming Sunday now is a great time to reflect on our relationship with mother Earth. As college students, it can be hard to think of ways that we can go green that are affordable and are within our control.

Going green not only can help save the environment but can also help save you green ($). So here are some choices you can make a habit in your college life to be more eco-friendly and potentially save money:

1. Use reusable grocery bags.

Americans throw away over 100 billion plastic grocery bags every year. (Don’t Be Trashy, Reduce Your Waste!) To help combat this, you can take your own reusable bags with you to the grocery store. In addition to reducing the use of plastic, I like to use the reusable bags because they are stronger and help me to limit my shopping habits because I only buy what will fit in the bags.

2. Create a shopping list before leaving home so you avoid the impulse to buy more than you need (and to stay in budget).

3. Buy in bulk to save money and reduce packaging needs.

4. To save your wallet and the environment, use a refillable water bottle instead of bottled water.

If you don’t like drinking straight tap water, consider investing in a water pitcher with filters.

5. Brew coffee at home and use a refillable mug.

But if you bring your coffee mug with you, you can even ask many of your favorite coffee shops to put your coffee in your mug instead of a paper cup!

6. Use a reusable bag and reusable containers like Tupperware to pack your lunch instead of plastic or paper bags.

7. Don't use plastic straws.


Plastic straws are in the top ten of litter items found on International Coastal Cleanup Day. Check out the Last Plastic Straw movement to learn more about how plastic straws harm the environment, especially our oceans!

8. Buy locally grown food.

You can help support farmers and the local economy by buying locally grown food that is usually more fresh and cheaper! By limiting the distance needed to transport food, less fuel is used so you can also help to cut down on greenhouse gases.

9. Go meatless on Mondays.

Since the meat industry emits ⅕ of all greenhouse gases, then reducing the demand for meat will also reduce the production of these gases.

10. Go paperless!

Try having all of your bills and receipts sent to you electronically. You can also try to reduce your paper usage by using e-tickets and e-docs. If your professors allow you, consider taking notes and creating flash cards electronically. In addition to not having to buy notebooks or flashcards, you will be assured that you will never lose them and can access them anywhere!

11. Reuse school supplies.

If you can’t go paperless, be sure to reuse your notebooks for all remaining paper and use both sides of papers whenever possible.

12. Cut your shower time and try to use less heated water by taking warm showers instead of hot ones.

By shortening your shower for 1-2 minutes, you can save up to 150 gallons of water a month. I recommend making a shower playlist to help you keep track of how long you spend in the shower.

13. When washing your clothes, only wash full loads so that you make the most of your energy consumption.

Since 75% of the energy required to wash laundry goes into heating the water, try to use less heated water by washing clothes with cold water (which has been known to be better for helping clothes colors and shape last longer).

14. Reduce your energy consumption by turning off and unplugging things that consume energy when not in use.

As always, be sure to turn off lights when not in the room! Don’t leave electronics running longer than necessary, and even unplug them when turned off. Electronics can even use vampire power: power is drawn from outlets when chargers and electronics are left plugged in. Using power strips can prevent this since by disconnecting electronics from the power source then they cannot draw vampire power from the outlets .

15. In addition to reducing your energy consumption, you can take the stairs instead of the elevator to help keep you in shape!

16. In addition to recycling, consider ways that you can reduce your trash and get creative in finding ways to reuse and repurpose your ‘trash’.

On average, Americans create 4.4 pounds of trash every day. Consider joining the zero waste movement and trying to live trash-free!


Hopefully, these will inspire you to re-examine your lifestyle and think of how you can go green and reduce your ecological footprint.

If you want to find out what your ecological footprint is, consider checking with the footprint calculator and then creating a plan to reduce your footprint.
