This week we will be exploring breeds that cost between USD$1,200 and USD$2,000. We hope that you enjoy this little peek into their personalities.

American Wirehair - $1,200

The American Wirehair came from a spontaneous mutation in a litter of cats from New York in 1966. These types of mutations are uncommon but not necessarily rare and happen when two ordinary cats mate, and the resulting kitten it totally different from its parents. The most interesting aspect of the American Wirehair is that this mutation has not yet appeared in any other countries and therefore makes it especially unique, and 100% American.

As the name suggests the American Wirehair is born with a springy, wiry coat which also includes its ear fur and even springy looking whiskers. How cute! Similar to the American Shorthair, the Wirehairs have an even, balanced temperament with a gentle and quiet personality. They also prefer the indoors over being outside, which anyone with a crimped hairstyle can appreciate. They really are a gorgeous cat and incredibly popular in Germany.

American Curl - $1,300

If you love curls, then you’ll love the American Curl. This cat is blessed with the cutest little ears you will ever see. Like most other cats with unique attributes, the ears are the result of a spontaneous mutation. First appearing in California in 1981 they are found around the world (and a few of us here at Land of Meow have even seem them on the streets of Spain enjoying time with their humans).

They are a lovable and physically affectionate cat that really enjoys a good loving headbutt, and are perfect for those who are looking for a cuddle buddy.

Friends to both children and cats, the Ragdoll is a great addition to a family and well worth the cost of bringing it into your home.

British Shorthair - $1,500

The British Shorthair is the teddy bear of cats. With their stocky body and smooshable round face it’s hard to stop cuddling them. They have a lovely quiet and mellow temperament and are incredibly loyal to their humans, happily following them around the house. Wherever you sit, they sit, what’s not to love!

Egyptian Mau - $1,500

The ancient Egyptians were well known worshippers of cats. In fact, in the “Book of the Dead”, Ra, the Sun God, is portrayed as a Tabby cat much like the Egyptian Mau, complete with a “scarab beetle” or “M” marking on the forehead.

The Mau’s most striking characteristic is its spotted coat and large green eyes. They are a smart breed that learns quickly but are cautious of strangers and will often adopt a single person in the family to be their favourite. They are also an athletic cat. In fact, they are the fastest of the domestic cats, so plenty of opportunity and room to jump and run is needed. It’s not a cat suited to living in an apartment or small house and will act out if confined for too long.

Friendly and loyal they are perfect for an active household that enjoys including the cat in their adventures.

Siberian Forest Cat - $1,600

The Siberian Forest Cat is the national cat of Russia and just as the environment demands, it is a large, strong cat which is noted for its agility. A friendly and affectionate cat, it loves humans, and not just their own but all humans. This cat plays well with children, other pets, strangers and even water. With a Siberian Forest Cat in the house you’ll never be bored.

The Siberian Forest cat is also incredibly intelligent and works with its humans to create a harmonious family unit. In Barnaul, Siberia, is a couple of Russian farmers who have numerous Siberian Forest Cats living on their farm. The cats protect the chickens and rabbits from mice, rats and other vermin in payment for lodgings in the barn. Alla Lebedeva proudly posts many of the cats on her YouTube channel. Pop on over for your dose of gorgeous cuteness!

Elf Cat - $2,000

The Elf Cat is the new kitty on the block, originating from a cross between a Sphynx and an American Curl. With a similar body to the Sphynx, it has more skin ‘wrinkles’ especially around the shoulders, ears and muzzle, but this extremely rare cat stands out from the crowd due to its delicately curled ears.

Bred to retain the best qualities of its parents, the Elf Cat is intelligent, friendly, outgoing and extremely affectionate. A loyal cat with an active and curious mind, they adapt easily and get along with other animals very well, which is great since the Elf Cat likes company and if you tend to be away from the house a lot it's best to get them a buddy for companionship.

La Perm - $2,000

If you want a cat that is full of mischief and will make you laugh then the La Perm cat is for you. A small and undeniably cute cat with a lovely curly coat, they are a clever breed often described as clownish and something of a mischief maker. They know to use their paws in much the same way a human would, and are adept at opening doors, swiping things and will even tap you on the shoulder when it wants to get your attention. Whilst not a clingy cat, the La Perm does like to be around its humans. Moderately active, it will retrieve items in games of fetch as long as they don’t last for too long. Quiet of voice, gently and patient, they get along well with humans but need to be socialised as kittens to accept other cats.
