Cats are the most popular German pets. But which cat breeds do we really like to keep?

The number of cats in German households fluctuates between 8 and 8.2 million. The fluffy balls of wool are by far the most common. The European Shorthair is clearly in first place among the most popular cat breeds in Germany. It is related to the normal domestic cat and is particularly popular due to its diversity: it is available in all possible colors. It is extremely easy to care for and makes a cozy room tiger as well as an agile outdoor goer.

In the second place there is a very big hummer. The Maine Coon cat can weigh up to ten kilograms and over one meter long. The cuddly tigers are extremely playful and mostly very focused on their people when they spend time with him from an early age. Third place looks very different. The British Shorthair can be found here. It is often referred to as a compact cuddle package. She likes it slow and calm and is essentially the way she looks: meek and patient. The majestic Persian cat follows in fourth place among the most popular cat breeds in Germany. Her look mostly looks a bit grim through her somewhat flattened face. But the cat is not a grumpy bitch, but a relaxed, mostly motionless, fur ball that needs a lot of care. Not so fifth place: the Siamese cat has a short, easy-care coat and has its own character. She likes to set the tone, is considered somewhat idiosyncratic, but is also extremely fond of being with people. She is a cat for experienced owners who is particularly smart and quite dominant.
