Could you please tell me how many breeds of cats exist in the world? I know there may not be a clear number because new breeds are added once in a while, but I'll be happy even with an approximate number. Thx!
I'm not sure if anyone has made accurate calculations as regards the exact number of cat breeds in the entire world, but the International Progressive Cat Breeders Alliance (IPCBA) recognizes 73 cat breeds while the Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) - only 41. The International Cat Association (TICA) recognizes 55 breeds. I suppose it all depends on what cat association you're talking about.
