Highland Lynx was the original name of this lovely cat. Its Jungle Curl-Desert Lynx ancestry is intriguing. Both breeds are new and experimental. Some say the Jungle Curl.

Ragamuffins were created by Ragdoll aficionados who wished to escape the breed association's rigorous standards. The breed name comes from the fact that these cats fall limp (like ragdolls) when lifted up.
Despite seeming alike, the Peterbald is genetically different from the Sphynx and other hairless breeds. Some cats are born with coats but lose them over time. A hairless cat from Russia, where it's frigid, may seem surprising.

A purebred British domestic shorthair, the British Shorthair is similar to the American Shorthair. It may date back to the first century AD, say historians. That would make it one of the oldest known cat breeds.
Russian Blues have plush coats like British Shorthairs. Another breed that makes a good pet. Intelligent and curious, the Russian Blue is also laid-back.
