Dimensioned drawing of a Ragdoll Cat with measurements for height and length

The typical Ragdoll Cat has an overall height of 9”-11" (23-28 cm) and body length of 17”-21” (43-53 cm). An average Ragdoll Cat weighs between 8-20 lb (3.6-9.1 kg) and has a typical lifespan of 12-15 years.

Turkish Angora Cat

Turkish Angoras, known for their silky, fine, all white coats and blue or amber eyes, are beautiful cats with active personalities. Angoras love to be involved in whatever their humans are doing, but do not enjoy being held. Largely independent and determined, Angoras are most happy doing what they want, when they want. The Turkish Angora breed is an ancient breed, originating from the Asian part of Turkey.

Beloved by the Islamic prophet, Mohammed, the Turkish Angora has always been a popular cat in Turkey before becoming a worldwide sensation. However, the Cat Fancy governing board once declared all longhaired cats to simply be called “longhairs,” which almost resulted in the destruction of the purebred line of Turkish Angoras. Were it not for the determination of the Turkish Zoo to maintain this breed of cat, the purebred Turkish Angora bloodline may have been lost forever.

Turkish Angora Cats have an overall height of 8”-10" (20-25 cm), body length of 14”-16” (36-41 cm), and weight between 5-10 lb (2.3-4.5 kg). Turkish Angora Cats have a typical lifespan between 12-18 years.

American Bobtail Cat

The American Bobtail, a cat known for his dotted and striped coat and bobbed tail, is a medium to large cat with a piercing, intense hunting gaze. The first American Bobtail, Yodie, was found at a motel in Arizona in the 1960s. Yodie’s owners believed him to be a cross between a bobcat and a domestic cat, but he was fertile and if he was a true hybrid he would have been sterile. Therefore, the trait for the bobbed tail is simply a dominant genetic mutation which has been passed on to other tabbies throughout the years. American Bobtails are friendly, loyal, and intelligent cats making them great family cats.

American Bobtail Cats have an overall height of 9”-10” (23-25 cm), body length of 17”-19” (43-48 cm), and weight between 7-18 lb (3.2-8.2 kg). American Bobtail Cats have a typical lifespan between 13-15 years.

Japanese Bobtail Cat

The Japanese Bobtail, a purebred cat hailing from Japan, is slender cat with a fluffy, bobbed tail bouncing on its behind. Playful and intelligent, the Japanese Bobtail is mischievous and talented at getting into places it should not. Due to its high intelligence, the Japanese Bobtail is also capable of learning tricks that usually only dogs learn.

The Japanese Bobtail is estimated to have been around since the sixth century as a seafaring cat during the times of the silk road. Revered and immortalized through silk screen paintings and woodcut prints, many legends surround the Japanese Bobtail, especially the tri-colored ones, called Mi-Ke, that were considered lucky.

Japanese Bobtail Cats have an overall height of 8”-9” (20-23 cm), body length of 13”-15” (33-38 cm), and weight between 6-12 lb (2.7-5.4 kg). Japanese Bobtail Cats have a typical lifespan between 9-16 years.
