Top 10 Unusual Cat Breeds

Teacup Persians are a breed that has become quite popular recently. Many people have moved into smaller houses and apartments, and because of the space restrictions, the demand for teacup Persians has exploded. Teacups are not a strange genetic mutation, but rather the result of selective breeding of smaller-sized Persians. These cats are unique, as they look exactly like normal Persian cats, with long fur and their distinctive flat faces, but will never grow more than 6lbs. for females and 7lbs. for males. Full grown, they are about 8 inches tall while sitting. Standard Persians range from 10lbs. to 13lbs. in weight. Despite their small size, Teacup Persians are still Persians, and are susceptible to the myriad health problems that normal-sized Persians are, such as urinary tract disorders, lupus, eyelid cysts, and various cancers.
