Our team has been hard at work for the last month tracking down rare cats. Let me tell ya.. this has not been an easy task. Some are so rare their are only 2 in the United States. Before getting the request to locate these breeds, we had NO idea how many new cat breeds have been created in the last 10 yrs. Have you ever heard of a Cheetoh? How about an Australian Mist? A Bambino?
Maybe I will get lucky and find a breed that does not cause me to have an asthma attack. Ohh ya BTW I am HIGHLY allergic to cats. Maybe that is why I have not kept up with all the breeds. I knew most of them when I was a kid. But since I could not become obsessed with them due to my allergies I stopped paying much attention to them after the age of 12.
I had the opportunity a couple of months ago to attend my very first cat show. It have to say I quite enjoyed it for the 1/2 hr I was able to be there. If you ever get the chance to attend one go. The people showing the cats are very, very nice as well as helpful. I of course am there primarily to scout cats to appear on Animal Planet's CATS 101. We are currently filming the third season. While attending it became clear to me that there certainly are enough breeds to keep us busy for many, many years. So if you LOVE the show let us know. Oh and of course let Animal Planet know too. If you have a minute please write a comment below and tell us what cat breeds you would like to see profiled.
