Top 10 BIGGEST CAT Breeds

Hey YouTube, Jim here! Welcome to Top10Archive! Much of our population is often split into
two kinds of people: dog people and cat people. Dog people enjoy the loyalty, the playfulness,
the hilarious dopey nature of canines. Cat people… well, I don’t know, I can’t
relate. What I do know is that it is common for people
to have several cats, and love big fat ones. How fat? You’d be surprised. There are many strange cat breeds that grow
so much you start to wonder, is this legal to own? So, join me today and find out more about
the Top 10 Biggest Cat Breeds! But before we get started, why not become
an archivist today by clicking that subscribe button and notification bell so you don’t
miss out on any future uploads! If you end up enjoying this video, let us
know by giving it a thumbs up and in the comment section, tell us which cat breed you like
the most or would like to own! 10. Burmese
Ah, the Famous Burmese cats. They were bred from a cat named Wong Mau,
the first of their entire kind, who was brought to the U.S. and bred with a Siamese in 1930. Unlike other cats on this list, they’re
actually friendly, curious and are overall pleasant, which could be from their Siamese
breeding. Burmese cats aren’t enormous, but rather
medium-sized cats. They’re still heavy, weighing anywhere between
8 and 12 pounds, so you better work out enough to carry one on each shoulder, as they’re
not solitary cats, but rather love company. 9. Persian
The Persian cat has its origins where you might imagine, in Mesopotamia (now Iran). They were brought over in the 17th Century
to Europe by an Italian nobleman who just couldn’t resist them. Later, their popularity spread, becoming a
favorite for Queen Victoria. They’re said to be selective and independent,
and also proven to be huge. Females normally weight up to 11 pounds, and
males up to 14. They also have health problems like eye conditions
and respiratory issues due to their scrunched-up faces. 8. Norwegian Forest Cat
As the name states, these cats origins began in Norway. This means, with its long hair, it’s very
resistant to cold. Physically, they’re similar to the Maine
Coon and are quite popular in Scandinavian countries. Females of this breed grow to be around 15
pounds, and males up to 20 pounds. What I love the most is the pictures of this
breed’s owners carrying it across their arms, with more cat hanging out of the sides
than not. This is a large cat, everybody, in case you
didn’t notice. They’re also big shedders, so forget about
black clothing if you want one of these. 7. The American Bobtail
This cat may sound scary with that name, but you have to keep in mind the fact that there
are several variations of the type. There are Japanese, American, and Kurilian
Bobtail cats. However, despite the many variations of them,
they’re not actually related. The American Bobtail has particular features. For instance, it has a short or sometimes
entirely absent tail, which makes it look very strange. On top of that, they actually can weigh up
to 11 pounds as females and 16 pounds as males on average. 6. Siberian
A Russian feline that’s actually good for those with allergies (finally!) This is due to the fact that they produce
less Fel D1 protein, responsible for triggering allergies. Overall, this is a strong cat, it’s going
to be there for you, it’ll sit on you when you’re upset, it’s bulky, it’s chunky,
and, it’s reliable. It has a pretty good resume, if I do say so
myself. The only thing is, it’s kind of heavy. Females will weigh around 8-12 pounds, and
males grow to an average of 17 pounds, sometimes weighing even more. 5.The Ragamuffin
No, you can’t pick one of these up at a bakery, it’s also much heavier. A Ragamuffin is a cat related to the Ragdoll,
Persian, and Himalayan cat, with whom it shares a lot of adorable traits. It takes a long time for the Ragamuffin to
fully reach its weight potential, which is around 20 pounds. The breed was established as a separate breed
in 1994 and are known for their thick, rabbitlike fur. 4. Ragdoll
Before we talk about how heavy this cat is, I just want to say I fully understand why
people get this cat when it’s a kitten. It’s got blue eyes and silky hair. It’s a docile and tranquil cat. In fact, their name comes from their tendency
to go limp when picked up. If you didn’t know it was about to gain
a ton of weight, you’d absolutely melt for this cat. On paper, this cat is the perfect pet. Before its fur gets all long and fluffy and
gets that “older cat” look, it’s an adorable small bear. Once it grows, though, they can reach weights
in excess of 20 pounds! 3. The Chausie
Not your average kitty, the Chausie is a high-price breed. People will often go to other countries to
find them and breed them for profit. Why? They’re like the Jennifer Aniston of cats. Except, unlike Jennifer Aniston, these cats
are heavy. Males can reach up to 22 pounds. They’re jungle cat-looking felines, with
whom they definitely share a genetic line. Now, though, they’re far enough removed
from their wild side that they’re quite nice to have around the house, if you’re
not afraid of a large cat who looks like it could ruin your day, that is. 2. The Maine Coon
This cat is one of the oldest in North America. It’s named after where it was first discovered,
in Maine, and they’re known for being friendly, smart cats. They’re the type of cat who is more into
playing than laying around being caressed. They’re long, tall creatures weighing anywhere
between 10 and 25 pounds! Think about that! At 10 pounds, we think we have a large baby,
and that’s just the starting weight for this pet. These cats love activity but if you’re not
careful, they’ll get overweight on you real quick. 1. Savannah Cat
The Savannah Cat is the largest domestic Cat breed. However, “domestic” is an interesting
way of putting it. The Savannah Cat was actually created as a
crossing of Siamese cats and the African wild cat. It’s not even recognized in the UK as an
actual breed. Not to worry, though, the U.S. loves wild
things, so they’re perfectly acceptable here in your living room, since you are actually
allowed to have it in your house legally. Their size varies widely, but they can weigh
up to 30 pounds. They’re not fat, but rather sleek like a
small dog. Visually, the Savannah Cat is very elegant,
looking more like a cheetah than a housecat. They do have some downsides, like it’s going
to look at you like a cat that won’t text you back. It’s also prone to straying far away and
preying, but hey, their tastes are no one’s business but their own.

    Wow, cats are beautiful. I like Siamese, and the Savannah cat is gorgeous. However, after raising many cats as my kids pets, I've decided that they stink, and aren't worth owning. Nice to look at though.

  27. rucussing says:

    Cannot go wrong with a Maine Coon Cat, big pile of friendly fur! Love to play and contrary to the video was a long time lap sitter. Although if it was in the summer time, you really do not want to have a large hot kitty sitting on your lap, or on your shoulder, which is where my Mad Max liked to sleep! PS, never open a coke that has been sitting for a while, if your cat is asleep on your shoulder. When I opened my coke and it went "Pssssst" he used my shoulder as a launching pad! Screaming does not help, it just delays you from going to the bathroom to stem the bleeding and applying the bandages.

    That huge cat is not happy, and if you really love your pet you will not let this happen. Some think it is funny, some just don't care as it is just an animal, right? But come on, letting your pet get that huge is not love, how do I know all this, I have had cats all my life, and I am now 62 yrs old,  and we even have one that is part maine coon,  and we watch him closely, he already weighs 25 lbs.

  36. Deannajoy Sabourin says:
