A Bengal cat is an athletic animal, alert to its surroundings; a friendly, curious, confident cat with strength, agility, balance and grace. It is a medium to large cat which exhibits a very muscular and solid build. Its wide nose with prominent whisker pads and large oval, almost round eyes in a slightly small head enhance the wild appearance and expressive nocturnal look. It’s very slight, to nearly straight, concave profile and relatively short ears with wide base and rounded tips add to the Bengal’s distinctive and unique appearance. The short, dense coat has a uniquely soft and silky feel. The coat may be glittered or not glittered, with neither type to be given preference. A thick, low-set, medium-length tail adds balance to the cat.

The British Shorthair is one of the largest breeds of cat. It is chunky and substantial and the male is much larger than the female.
These are the ‘gentle giants’ of the cat world. They are loving and affectionate. They are good with children and other animals. They do not continuously demand human attention and are quieter than their foreign counterparts. Nor do they have the curious nature that gets many foreign breeds into trouble and if allowed out in the garden they are unlikely to roam. However they are often more than happy to be indoor cats.

The Siberian personality is usually friendly and adventurous. This breed does especially well with people, other cats, and even dogs! ... However, while Siberians are mellow and easy-going, they do have a very playful personality. They are known for their sense of adventure and agile ability.
It may come as a surprise to many that the Siberian is considered a hypoallergenic cat breed. But they have gloriously long hair and thick coat that's resistant to the most extreme weathers, meaning that the Siberian actually produces far less Fel d 1 protein than other breeds.

The Sphynx is an outgoing cat that is very affectionate. They are very warm and soft to touch and this must one of the most appealing things about the Sphynx as to many people they are not the most attractive cats to look at. They do tend to be something of a conversation piece. Although they do not appear to suffer unduly from the cold, central heating is probably appreciated.
