1. Maine Coon
These enormous cats are bred in the U.S., and an average male can weigh on an average of 10 to 16 lbs and females from 7 to 11 lbs.
Their lynx look makes them very adorable pets and can grow up to 3.2 ft long. The good news is, these big babies, unlike other cats, aren’t afraid to take a dive. So if you need a swimming buddy, the Maine coon is an excellent swimming partner.
2. Savannah cat
The Savannah cats are a cross between a serval and a domestic cat and are the largest and the most expensive cat today.
An adult Savannah cat can weigh up to 20 pounds, but despite their enormous sizes and coming from a wild ancestral lineage, these cats are remarkably calm, friendly and above all, very smart.
3. Siberian cat
These Siberian cats are obviously gifts from mother Russia. These cats could pass for dogs and even express themselves the ways dogs do.
They are also known to be hypo-allergenic because there are some allergens in their fur and saliva. This means, if you are allergic to cats but would still want to have one for keeps, the Siberian cats are just what you need.
4. Norwegian Forest cat
The Norwegian Forest cats are the only cats with the ability to climb down with their heads first.
A male Norwegian can weigh up to 15 pounds, while females weigh lesser, but despite their massive sizes, they maintain their charm of being sweet and kind and are just perfect for apartment dwellers.
If you’re considering getting one as a pet, understand that these cats require an active lifestyle due to their hunting nature.
These cats were explicitly bred to get pets that would be extremely people friendly. Rag dolls were given their names because they remain relaxed and tame in human hands, and their colours make them even more adorable to keep.
Rag dolls have a very sharp memory, making them one of the smartest cats on earth. An adult male can weigh up to 24 pounds and grow to be around 3 feet long.
6. Van cat
Van cats are one of the oldest sweet domesticated cats and are an excellent choice for cat lovers who want cuddly pets.
