    My favorite breed of cat is called the /kot/ cat general. Sounds crazy, but it's a really great breed of cat.

    All cats are just cats, go for a common shorthair of any color you like.

      this is a common cat-redditor myth. by myth i mean it's false. by cat-redditor, i mean from the people who brought you "chonkers" and "le cats are gods btw im an atheist". no, not all cats are cats. telling people this shit leads to them getting cats with undesirable temperaments and chucking them outside to die because they're sick of it and don't know how to work with cats yet, and then comes the next cope when they have problems
      "cats set their own terms! you need to adapt to them! maybe the cat is too smart to care!? ACTUALLY THEY ARE BORED BECAUSE YOU DIDNT LET THEM ROAM AND TURN INTO DOGFOOD OR CAR DECOR!"
      no, you have an animal with a bad temperament and you could have avoided this if you got the correct breed for your skill level.

      ragdoll, period. you can upgrade to a more difficult cat later when you get cats #2, #3, and #4.

      Maine coons, not ragdolls they're sensitive and cannot be let outside, they're also highly intelligent and need mental stimulation

      NO cats can be let outside unless you have a catio. not up for debate. if you do not have a proper enclosure you are shortening your cats lifespan by 10-15 years. i don't care what you think drivers, dog owners, or nature should do. in their natural environment, the juvenile version of the wild version of the cat is prey to everything. our domesticated cats are permanently in a juvenile mindset, only somehow even less wary. they're fricked. they die almost instantly.

          B...but that one anecdotal instance of a cat living a long life outside going against mass amounts of actual data! kek

          There's also the fact that even if a domesticated cat survives outdoors, that owner is still absolutely garbage. That owner is letting the neighborhood deal with the cat instead of him/her. It'd be like a parent sticking their kid in front of the TV or yeeting them to their neighbors the vast majority of the time. Yeah sure, the kid could survive until 18, doesn't mean that parent isn't shit.

          a breeder, I'm from Yurop though. they seem serious and professional, was given a lecture on how to care for it and I'll also get a written guide. did my homework already though but it can't hurt

      The absolute state of first worlders. Just adopt an ordinary kitten born from a mother that was once a rescued stray female or descended from a hungry stray kitten that one day meowed at the doorstep of your friend's or relative's house. Alternatively you can rescue a stray kitten yourself, but it will be harder to socialize them and they'll always be a bit semi-feral. Remember to vaccinate and check for diseases, when it's approaching sexual maturity try keeping it inside, spay and neuter.

      Cat and dog "races" are most of the time inbred disease-ridden deformed freaks that some victorian era losers mass produced for show. Maybe unless you need a certain race that is good for a very specific task, the good ol' mutt is always the best.

        Non-purebred cats are awful pets. Too much outdoor cat homosexualry reverses their development so they are genetically like dingos and huskies, also awful pets.

        If you think cats shouldnt be purebred then I think cats should be exterminated if people are too lazy to keep them properly. How about we have cat breeds and only exterminate the mutts and mongrels shitting up the alleyways contributing nothing but disease and filth? It worked for dogs.

        Yes, go to any dog fox or deer thread to see lots of them.

        The vast majority of furries are here for horse and big cat threads. Dog threads are practically furry free unless its a horse/big cat tourist or a schizoid troll trying to force his narrative. You know there's a schizo here who pretend to be a dogfricker and then switches IPs to beg mods to ban /dog/ from Wauf, right? It's some newbie that came here and developed a mental illness where he thinks he's bugguy.

    Go to the shelter and find one that is generally calm and nice to you. It doesn't matter as long as it isn't sick. My friend did that and found a good one.

    Just ask around if one of your neighbors' moggie cat had a litter.

    Purebred cats are even more of a meme than dogs.

    Any cat will do, there's not the range in difficulty and temperament you find in dog breeds. For starters you might want to get a kitten from a certified breeder - if you adopt some stray theres no way to make sure it's not sick or an outdoor cat or might have traumas that make it difficult to keep or whatever.
    The worst cat I ever owned, behaviorally speaking and healthwise, was a Persian. Avoid Persians like the plague that's all I'd say.

        Too dark. People aren't that sadistic usually. They'd rather just abandon something and have it become someone else's problem.
