The largest breed of cats in the world is TOP-6.
The human essence is such that everyone wants to have all the best, the biggest and the rarest. This also applies to the cat’s world. It’s not for nothing that every time new breeds of cats are brought out to reach their place in the Guinness Book of Records.
So felinology is not slumbering and creating with each time more and more kinds of cats and each of them has its own characteristics.
Discussing the largest types of cats in the world, each evaluates them according to different parameters. For some, the size of large breeds depends on the length of the cat, for someone, weight plays a role, and for others, the indicator is growth.
Leaders of the nomination “The largest breed of cat”
To date, two furious rivals fighting for the title of “the largest breed of domestic cat” are: Savannah and Maine Coon.
It’s no secret that the third rival was intended to be a representative of the asher kind. But as it turned out, this breed was a fictional creation of a felinologist and as such not existing, but simply given out a savanna under the mask of a supposedly new unique asher.
After the exposure, this participant was disqualified from the competition, but it is worth knowing about some nuances concerning this case. After all, to this day has not yet been rendered a judicial decision regarding this breed.
A thorough genetic examination is conducted to reveal the truth about the asher creation. The owner of this new species, Brady, assures us that these two cats are absolutely two different breeds.
He explains that the only similarity of these breeds is the serval gene, and as yet the genes of the Asian leopard and even the predatory cat are mixed (see photo of the Asian leopard cat).
I place is a savanna breed.
Characteristics of the breed.
This species is considered a big cat in terms of weight, and also stands out by the growth and length of its torso. Weight: 12-15 kg (about the same weight as Maine Coons, while it is known that there are other representatives achieving more weight, about 20 kg). Height: about 60 cm.
As for the belonging of this breed to the home representatives of their kind, one can argue for a long time, since it was caused by a combination of African serval species with a simple cat. But if you think about it, the ancestors of most pets were wild.
Heiress of this breed, a cat named Trably, the first one bothered to get into the Guinness Book of Records. Her height then reached the withers up to 48cm. Therefore, the title of the highest – it was her.
In addition to these achievements, this species is, to date, the most expensive in comparison with others, the maximum price of # 8212; twenty-five thousand dollars. Also see which is the most expensive cat in the world.
II place – breed Maine Coon.
Description of the breed.
Maine coons are not only cats of large species, but also charming pets with sharp tassels on the tips of the ears, like lynxes, fluffy hair and a variety of colors. Weight: from 8-15 kg. Height: up to 41 cm. Stewie – a thoroughbred cat from this region, broke the record and became the longest cat in the world. The length from the tip of his fluffy tail, to the nose was 123 cm.
III place – representatives of the Shawzi (chauzy)
Description of the breed.
In addition to the above two legitimate contenders for the title of “the largest cat”, you can imagine a representative of reed cats, the Shawzi breed (also known as chausi or housey). Weight: up to 18 kg. Height: 40cm.
The main task for creating this breed, crossing the reed cat and Abyssinians (see all the photos of the cane cat), was the idea of the breeders to get a variety of domestic cat, to protect wild cats from confinement in captivity.

IV place & # 8212; charming cats ragdoll.
Description of the breed.
The breed of Ragdoll cats, although it differs in size from ordinary cats, is also difficult to call gigantic. Considering that large in this breed are mostly males and then not all. Weight: 9 kg. Length: 1 meter (record). These cats, especially their breed, are also called rag dolls. And all thanks to them at the genetic level, built-in dispassionate ardor, good-looking and not aggressive behavior.
V place – short-haired pixie-bean (domestic lynx)
Description of the breed.
Another, but not the last, representative of feline giants is an artificially derived short-haired pixie-bean, a domestic lynx. These cats, externally, differ little from lynxes.
They are like representatives of these animals, but in miniature: the same sharp brushes on the tips of the ears and color. And also the pixy bot is made by a short tail (5 cm, sometimes 7-10 cm)
VI place – representatives of the North, Siberian cats.
Description of the breed.
Representatives of the breed are Siberian cats from Russia. Among the tribesmen, they are distinguished by their size. Weight: in males maximum reaches 12 kg, and in females up to 5-6 kg. The peculiarity of this individual is their external fluffy and glorious appearance. They are like a big and light lump of caress. At the same time, scientists guarantee that Siberian cats are among the hypoallergenic breeds, which means that they do not provoke an allergic reaction in sensitive people.
Curious cases.
One of the criteria of giant cats is also their weight. And in this case, the winner was none other than the one entered in the Guinness Book of Records under the category of the most plump cat – SpongeBob.
Its weight was 15 kg. To date, this cat had to be put on a serious diet. And according to a certain decision of the founders of the book, this column of the record was withdrawn for the safety of the feline representatives, so that the breeders would not sacrifice their health for the victory.
For a long time, such nominations were awarded repeatedly, and the most impressive result was with the Austrian cat Khimiya. He weighed about 21 kg and subsequently died of obesity.
It’s over to have the biggest cat in the house that’s nice and kind of becoming pride, but the main thing is first of all love to the animal and caring for it.
