#1 Most Popular Breed is the Domestic Cat – ancestors were around long before most of today’s recognized cat breeds. Known as “moggies,” “mixed breed,” and “alley cats.”

 Jessie Cat says: I am a mixed breed. Seems like most cats are. But some of the other purebreds sure do stand out in a crowd!

Gina says: I agree. Most of these breeds I’ve only seen in pictures. Very unique and beautiful. But so is Jessie!! (she’s rubbing vigorously against my legs)
