There are so many cat breeds in the world, some of which we've become accustomed to. For example, the Siamese or the Persians can now be found everywhere. But there are some rare cat breeds that only really rich people can afford because the price of some of them reaches unbelievable levels. Let's look at some of these breeds in more detail.

1. Egyptian Mau

You can easily confuse a cat of his breed with an Abyssinian cat. But there is a difference: the coat patterns of the former is distinguished by small spotted speckles. The breed was bred naturally in ancient Egypt.

2. Burmese Cat (Burma)

The homeland of these cats is the East. They resemble Persians pretty much with their semi-long hair and Siamese coloring. They have the same dark mask on the face, the same ears, head, and tail. They also have a golden or beige-colored coat. The body is squat, and the head is narrow with puffy cheeks and nose, which can be described as "Roman". At the same time, the head itself is rather wide and round. 

Their eyes are a little slant and a beautiful blue color. The paws are large and round.

3. Ragdoll

This is a semi-longhair cat with blue eyes that was bred in the late 60s of the last century in the United States by crossing a Siamese cat and a Persian blue-eyed cat. The cat's appearance resembles the Burmese cat, but differs with a more massive back and a wide chest. The weight of an adult cat is 7-10 kg, and the length from the tip of the tail to the nose is up to 1 m. All ragdolls have white-colored whiskers. The coat of this cat is very soft and its touch reminds of a rabbit.

4. Norwegian Forest Cat

This breed belongs to the semi-longhair ones. Most often, it can be found in Northern European countries, for example, Sweden, Norway, etc.

This cat can be confused with the European Shorthair cat but its coat is much longer and adjacent to the body. The undercoat is thick and very well defined. Thanks to its fur, the Norwegian forest cat seems to be bigger than it really is.

This cat has an elongated body with a very strong neck. A distinctive feature of the Norwegian forest cat is the cute ears with a tassel. The eyes on the triangular face are very expressive and kind of gloomy, so the whole look of this cat is somewhat wild and sullen.

5. American Shorthair

The ancestors of these cats arrived along with their owners with the first settlers from Europe to America. Their body is very massive, due to the strong and heavy bones, well-developed muscles, powerful legs, and wide chest. The above features are the most distinctive in males. All of them are quite big and stocky.

The rib cage is round and well-developed. All this combined with a powerful square head, pronounced cheeks, and a firm chin gives the impression of a strong and enduring animal. The eyes can be of any color: copper, yellow, green or blue. The coat is short, rather dense and thick.
