Cats, ranked

Which cat is the top cat? You’re about to find out.

Using the same complex (kind of) algorithm we used for our dog ranking, we have ranked 30 of the world’s most popular cat breeds from thirtieth-best to first-best. 

And the absolute best part? Zero cats will care that we did this — or that we are alive at all.

Of course, if you want to adopt a cat, be sure to check out your local shelter first. The cats there might not be certified by the Cat Fancier’s Association, but we bet you will fancy them anyway.

Now, our ranking:
