Top 20 cat breeds
Like every year, the LOOF published its ranking of the most popular cat breeds in France. And it is once again the Maine Coon who is on the 1st step of the podium!
The LOOF is the organization which keeps the Genealogical Book of purebred domestic cats up to date in France, by issuing pedigrees which make it possible to distinguish “purebred cats” from “cats of appearance”.
Each year, this organization classifies the different breeds of cats to find out which are the most popular in France. And this year again, as has been the case since 2010, it is the majestic Maine Coon who is at the top of this ranking with a popularity that continues to grow.
But the rest of the ranking of the favorite cat breeds of the French has some surprises in store this year, in particular a nice rise of the Ragdoll whose popularity continues to grow.
