The Himalayan is another really cute breed. They are really common in America, but they can also be found in the U.K. They have a really long coat, with unique markings. They are very social cats as well and tend to get along with people pretty well. They do tend to be a bit on the expensive side though, simply because they are so cute, and people just really want Himalayans.
The Ragdoll breed is really popular because they are not only cute, but they also lay around like a ragdoll when you pick them up. They are great lap cats, and they are also really gentle.
