Top 5 Smallest Cat Breeds

Devon Rex Kitten!Devon Rex Kitten!

These are the top 5 smallest cat breeds based on overall size and weight. Cats that stay very small are in high demand, and these little kitties are the tiniest.

Some, like the Devon Rex and Cornish Rex, even have curly hair that doesn’t shed – bonus!

All five of these little cats are considered newly developed breeds, with most originating within just the last few decades.

There is some controversy, however, about the origin of the Singapura.

The Singapura is the smallest domestic cat breed, and was supposedly a naturally occurring breed from Singapore, but DNA tests seem to suggest they are actually a variation of several well-known European and American breeds including the Burmese and that the whole tale about Singapore was a bit of a publicity stunt to lend some spice to the breed.

Well, check them all out right here. Enjoy the Journey and always remember…. Cats Rule!
