Some facts:

Scottish Fold are all born with straight ears, but then they turn into a folding ear type, or a straight ear type - which seems kind of pointless

They are easy-going, low maintenence and very affectionate, with little voices and a lazy outlook.

Scottish Fold cats love to sit like this, which frankly is good enough reason to own one in itself.

Cornish Rex

Owned by Lena Dunham, Marilyn Manson, Dita Von Teese and me, Beauty Director Sophie Beresiner

Some facts:

The tight, curly coat feels like very very soft silk, and it curls because there is no 'guard' hair in the undercoat, which makes them non-waterproof

They are quite dog like in their activity levels and their attachment to humans. They can meow very loudly too, and demand company at all times.

Sphynx

Owned by Demi Lovato, Dr. Evil, Steven Tyler and Lady Gaga 

MOST POPULAR

Some facts:

Sphynx cats are usually hairless, and their skin feels like a cross between velvet and shammi leather

They need to be bathed to clean the skin of natural oils which would normally be absorbed by the hairs

They are so keen to meet and be loved by people they're often used as 'therapy cats'. Lucky Demi. They need company, so two is better than one.

Siamese

Owned by K$sha, Marilyn Monroe, Rod Steward, and Ricky Gervais

Some facts:

Siamese cats are (loud) talkers. They will engage in back and forth conversations with you but you'll have no clue what it's about

They don't mind being walked on a lead, which is bound to attract all sorts of attention, which they also happen to like. In any form

Siamese are incredibly sociable and love the company of cats, dogs, babies, birds, anything that will engage in conversation

Exotic Shorthair

Owned by people who are totally overshadowed by the level of fame of the cats themselves

Some facts:

The most famous and popular cats on Instagram are arguably the Exotic Shorthair. You know Snoopybabe, who is a sensation in China? Or Lil Bub? Or the cute kitten in the little girls bicycle basket in that phone ad? All Exotics

Also known as 'Lazy Man's Persian, or 'Persian in a Petticoat'

They like to lie around alot, maybe tap a ball of string for a few seconds before lying around again. The couch potato of cats
