There are many different cat breeds. There are kittens that are sold on the market for $ 1, but there are those that go with the hammer for 5-7 thousand same dollars. Which cat is most expensive? What kind of breed will hit the pockets the hardest?
The first place by right belongs to a very interesting breed - Savannah. The price for one kitten of thevaries from $ 4,000 to $ 20,000.Savannah is the most expensive and largest breed of cats. A kitten with an interesting spotted color came in sale in the 80 years of the last century, and their cost at that time amounted to more than $ 20,000.The main goal of creating such a hybrid was the elimination of the fashion for cheetahs and leopards as pets.
Now rich people who love the exotic in everything, can create a pet that looks very much like a wild unbridled beast. However, this breed does not require difficult care. In spite of numerous failures, frank interference in the evolutionary period, I managed to get what I wanted: an ordinary domestic cat was built with an African serval. But, it should be noted that the result of all these actions is worth it: now the adult domestic savanna weighs an average of 15-17 kg, its height is more than 50 cm. Pretty cute kitty came out. ..
Second place is the handsome togger. Its value ranges from $ 1000-5000.Many lovers of cats, as well as zoo workers, would like to communicate daily with large representatives of a family of cats: lions, pantheries, tigers. The Totegger breed is, in fact, another way to comfort those who want to become closer to the wildlife of animals. Breeders claim that the breed standard is not yet fully established: they want the animals to have rounded ears! The founder of this breed is Judy Saden, who wanted to earn not only good money for lovers of cats by creating an unusual breed, but also to preserve the image of the tiger for future generations( if in the future these animals die out).
In the third place is the beautiful breed - Bengal. The cost of one kittens varies within the limits of 1100-4500 dollars. It is known that the Bengal breed of cats originates from Asian leopard cats. In the middle of the last century, this beast because of its valuable skins was destroyed. Poachers sold cubs to tourists, among whom was Jean Mly. A kitten who received the name of Malaysia honor of her homeland, in the house of the new mistress felt not very cozy. The hostess introduced him to a pet cat to help the baby adapt. Then in this couple came the kids. This offspring gave impetus to Jean Mly. She decided on experiments in genetics. Of course, these tests lasted not more than a dozen years and were completed only in 1987.It was in this year that the company was able to see the first representatives of the Bengal breed of cats, more details of which can be found here.
Of course, not all breeds are listed here, but only the most expensive ones are selected. But not a breed and not a kitty's price is important. The most important thing is how much the owner loves his pet.
