  Are there any breeds of cats that stay small after they're grown?
My husband and I have been thinking about getting our first cat. What we wanted to know is, are there any breeds of cats that stay small even after they are older? Like a poodle for dogs. We would love to have a cat that would be the size of a kitten it's entire life, and are wondering if such a cat exists. Thank you in advance.

I have a russian blue, and I consider him to be small. Not kitten small, but still pretty tiny. He's barely 8 pounds and is all muscle, so he's only that heavy because of that. Most russia blues don't get too big, so might be worth looking into if you think that's an attractive cat.

There is one breed of cat that's known for being rather small - the Singapura - but it's quite rare - starting at about $1,000 for a pet quality cat and THOUSANDS for a show quality cat.

And for other "teacup" or "mini" cats - reputable breeders do not breed these animals. Their diminutive size s them up to a myriad of health issues including heart failure since their hearts are so tiny. Reputable breeders breed to BETTER a breed and for the love of a breed. They don't do so at the expense of the health of the animal and solely to make a buck on idiots wanting something "trendy". These mutant tiny animals tend to live very, very short lives. Please do not support the breeding of animals at the compromise of their health.

If a regular sized cat is too big for you just don't get one - get a hamster.

My perisan cat is the size of a ktten. Look at the parents and you will be able to get a good idea of how big they will be when they are older.

Also females tend to be smaller than males.
