Whether cats are completely domesticated is questionable, but it is believed that humans have bred cats for specific characteristics for the past 2,000 years. These profiles explore some of those breeds and their unique traits. Each profile covers three specific areas: history, personality and conformation (the physical appearance of the cat). Check out your cat's illustrious history and description, or browse around for your perfect pet.
