Welsh Cat Breeds

Postby Mavericker on Fri Oct 06, 2006 9:19 pm

Hi. I'm doing research on Welsh cat breeds. I know that European shorthairs are found all aorund Europe, and if I'm not msitaken, British shorthiars are found in Wlaes, but are there any cat breeds that originated in Wales? Please let me know. :D

Seriously, are there any cat breeds in development in Wales. What cat breeds are popular in Wales?

I don't think there are any. The Cymric (a semi-long-haired Manx) sounds like it might be, but a little research has showed that the breed has no connection with Wales at all.

Catteries: http://www.walesindex.co.uk/pages/1690_624.html

Although a wide variety of cat breeds will be found in Wales, there are no specific Welsh breeds I can find. Most cats in Wales, and everywhere, are just moggies!

A "moggie" is a ganeral name for a cat by some people.

Thank you. I just wanted to be sure he wasn't insulting my feline friends by calling them alley cats.
