Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, they say, so a league table of the most beautiful breeds of cat should be taken with a pinch of salt!
Website All About Cats used the 'golden ratio' to study cats' faces and see which of the best-known cat breeds is the most beautiful, mathematically speaking. Some artists and architects believe the Golden Ratio makes the most pleasing and beautiful shape.
Here is the Top Ten: Three breeds shared top spot, Norwegian Forest, Russian Blue and Manx. Next came the Ragamuffin and Siberian, with American Curl sixth. The Selkirk Rex and Siamese were joint seventh. The Maine Coon was ninth and joint tenth were Egyptian Mau and Turkish Angora.
I disagree with this table. My non-pedigree moggie is the most beautiful cat in the world - to me, if not to anyone else!
So here we have it - the most beautiful cat in the world, my Toffee. I dare anyone to disagree! She is not only beautiful but clever too - and has written a book called Not So Sweet Toffee.
