My favorite breeds are Siamese and Maine Coon. Mine came from rescues. I also have 2 domestic shorthairs, a tux and a brown tabby.

My favorite is the Maine Coon. My Maggie is my girl! She's very affectionate and also very nosy. She gets along very well with my other two cats.

Even Though I prefer Main Coons or Sphynx, I think they ranked fairly.
