The physique of cats is more than attractive. Between their long mustaches, their bushy tails, and their adorable faces, our feline friends are truly some of the cutest animals in the world!

- The Abyssinian
- The Savannah
- The Sphynx
- The Cornish Rex
- The Devon Rex
- The Oriental
- The Siamese
- The Balinese
- The Singapura
- The Ocicat
The Abyssinian: The Bunny Cat of Cats With Big Ears
If the Abyssinian is also called “bunny cat” (rabbit cat), it is not for nothing! Indeed, its large ears are rather rare in the feline world. Likewise, the Abyssinian has the distinction of being one of the lightest cats, for its size, with an average weight of 4 to 5 kilos.
And even if he looks strangely like a small African wild cat, he does not have the character at all. Indeed, this feline is sociable by nature, whether with humans, other cats, or even other animals!
Coming from a cross between a Bengal cat and a Serval, the Savannah looks like a cheetah. Everything about him is impressive, be it his height, his weight (more than 10 kilos), his musculature, or even… his ears!
But don't be fooled by this beastly physique, the Savannah is a very affectionate and particularly playful cat. And the surprising thing for a cat: he loves water!
If the Sphynx is so famous, it is because it has no hair. Well almost. In reality, he still has a fine down of hair on his body. Beyond its "nudity", the Sphynx is also renowned for its bat face, due in particular to its triangular head and its large straight and pointed ears perched on the top of its skull.
In terms of temperament, the Sphynx is a very affectionate cat, even a stickler. His little pleasure? Climb on the shoulders of his human!
The Cornish Rex
The Cornish Rex is one of the few cats with curly hair. But this is not its only specificity. Indeed, he is also one of the cats with big ears. He has large ears that seem disproportionate to the rest of his body.
Very talkative, the Cornish Rex likes to meow for just about anything and everything, which can become annoying in the long run. However, his endearing character and his "cat-dog" behavior more than compensate for this small defect!
The Devon Rex
Like its cousin the Cornish Rex, the Devon Rex also has a curly coat and large ears, which gives it a certain charm.
Of a benevolent nature, this feline with a very soft coat is overflowing with energy and needs constant attention from its owners. Staying alone all day sleeping, very little for him!
The Oriental cat is a Siamese with a fully colored coat. With his triangular head, almond-shaped eyes, and large ears, he is easily recognizable.
His temperament is in all respects similar to that of the Siamese: he is talkative, possessive, affectionate, and above all very intelligent!
The Siamese: the Royal One of the Cats with Big Ears
The Siamese possesses a natural elegance, accentuated by their azure blue eyes and dark mask on their face. It is not for nothing that he is nicknamed the Prince of cats! What's more, he has relatively large ears, which does not detract from his charm.
This cat is generally very attached to its human, with whom it lives a truly fusional relationship. Its main particularity is that it is sometimes moody: in a few seconds, it goes from a sweet and endearing cat to a talkative and capricious feline.
The Balinese also descends from the Siamese, which explains why it has its place in this classification of cats with big ears. Its hair, however, is longer than that of its cousin and its tail is feather-shaped.
A true hunter, can spend hours indulging in this activity (or playing) but he can also be calm and empathetic, especially when he feels that his master is sad. Be sure, it will be the first to comfort him!
With its 25 cm long and 2 kg, the Singapura is considered the smallest domestic cat in the world. It is their haps for this theirson that he seems to have big ears. Indeed, given its small size, they stand out particularly!
The Singapura has a perfectly balanced temperament. He is affectionate, playful, intelligent, calm, and Singapura. It's very simple, it only has qualities!
The Ocicat, resulting from a cross between a Siamese and an Abyssinian, is increasingly popular in the United States. Its spotted coat is reminiscent of that of the ocelot and gives it the appearance of a miniature fawn.
Easy to live with, this cat knows how to adapt to all situations. As a result, he can live with an elderly person as well as with children. His only requirement: to have space to be able to stretch his legs!
