If you are looking for a small cat, your choice is largely a matter of personality.

Step 1: Consider an Abyssinian
If you’re looking for a playful, intelligent cat, consider an Abyssinian or a colorpoint shorthair. Abyssians are colorful cats because each hair in their coat is a combination of colors.

Tip
Some believe the Abyssinian is a direct descendant of the cats that were worshiped by the ancient Egyptians.

Step 2: Investigate a Devon Rex
Investigate a Devon Rex. These cats have large eyes and huge ears, making them look somewhat elfish. This is an affectionate cat that has relatively few health issues.

Step 3: Research a Singapura
Want a cat who stays a kitten forever? Research a Singapura. This is a muscular cat with large eyes and ears that never outgrows its kitten size.

Step 4: Ponder a Russian Blue
If you’re looking for an independent cat, think about Russian Blue breed.

Tip
Russian Blues are fairly compatible with other pets and children — something to keep in mind when researching.

Step 5: Explore a Javanese
If you want a cat that loves attention, think about getting a Javanese. This is a strong muscular cat with long tapering lines.

Step 6: Give some thought to a Cornish Rex
Give some thought to a Cornish Rex. This is a cat with a soft coat. It is highly active and needs little grooming. Nice things do come in small packages after all, you just have the find the right one for you!

The Singapura breed cat is considered the smallest cat breed in the world. Adult females weigh up to 6 pounds and males up to 8 pounds.
