Arianwen is a prized, purebred Shelter kitty. They have a great purrsonality.

I think it depends what you want. If you are looking for particular traits then you would go purebred. All mine are domestics, but I'd love a mainecoon one day

Whichever you end up with is the best.. LOL!

I'd go the rescue route, though, honestly. There are sooo many cats in rescue and unless the breed you like is extremely rare you can find exactly what you want through a thorough search of shelters and rescues near you.

Rescue kitties are best in my eyes, there is really no better feeling than knowing that you have saved a kittie's life.

But like Zalensia I have a deep desire to have a purebred some day. Also, I would like a Norwegian Forest Cat.

I'd like an NFC one day, too. Or a Maine Coon Cat.

or maybe both...

I've never met a pure bred cat, so I really couldn't say. I do love my shelter baby Tank (Maine Coon + ?), and Nora is an amazing cat (I hope she comes home soon...), so my preference is rescues regardless of breed.

I've found that animals rescued seem to appreciate little things more, like a special treat or long snuggles. I have a few pets from breeders and they seem less interested in people than rescued animals of the same species.

Well it depends on the breed Siamese all the way for me but other than that any moggie with a personality I like is fine by me.
