Default What's A Cat Breed You WOULDN'T Want To Own?

I know this is a cat forum,but we all have our preferences.So what is a cat breed that you don't think you would want to own? Me personally, I don't think I would want a Savannah,simply because I don't think I could accomodate their needs. They are beautiful though.

Hmmmm, I think feelings could be hurt by this thread. I don't think anybody wants to see their cat listed as a breed somebody wouldn't want. Maybe that's just me.

I'd probably take anything that was desperate for a home but if choosing, I prefer robust cats and would avoid any breed that had in built health issues. Really I prefer moggies.

I love any kind of cat, even disabled cats but I will only say that I would prefer not to have a sphynx only because I keep the house fairly cool in the winter and would not want them to feel uncomfortable. I hate a hot house.

As much as I love all cats I couldn't have any long haired cats because my partners nose is a big wuss! Lenny doesn't seem to malt atall and he hasn't had the sneezes off him but our best friend has a Persian and even with piriteze he is a mess! If it was up to me I'd live on a farm with one of each size and colour and breed!

Persian or any bracheosephallic cat/dog. Just look like a vet bill on 4 legs.

Obviously, if any cat was in desperate need of a home, regardless of breed, I would take it in if it was up to me and if I could afford to care for it.

But I don't think I'd ever want a Persian. The noises they make freak me out a bit. Plus my aunt's Persian seems to have a lot of issues with sneezing and such.

And, as much as I love them, I probably wouldn't have a Sphynx. It can get pretty cold in my house.

I probably also wouldn't want a munchkin. They just don't seem right to me.

After being owned by two Persians, I wouldn't want any Persian/Himmalaya in the future. Scottish fold and Munchkin are also big no no for me, because of the inherited health issue.

Other than those, I possible could cross out all shorthair breeds from my wishlist (yeah I'm longhair addicted ). I would also remove Balinese because I don't like oriental type cats.

Breeding Munchkins has been banned over here, I think.

Yeah, any high maintenance cat in terms of brushing and stuff is out for me for now, especially persians and such. Maybe someday in the future I'll end up with a long hair moggie, and fall in love, but right now short hairs all the way.

Also sphynx's are a no go for me, and munchkins.
