We all love cats and there are some seriously cute breeds out there. I mean, what’s more adorable than a squish-faced Persian or silly Scottish Fold? Why, their kittens of course! Here we’re taking a moment not just to appreciate certain cat breeds, but to appreciate how cute their babies are. Enjoy!

#1 – Persian

Persians come in a few varieties but are mostly known for their uniquely short muzzles, giving them a squished-face appearance. The Persian is a very old breed with an unclear history and are still very popular today.

#2 – Scottish Fold

The Scottish Fold is identified by its folded ears, although not every cat in the breed has them. In fact, because of the genetic qualities that cause the folded ears, two folded-eared cats should never be bred together as the kittens could suffer health problems. That said, correctly bred Scottish Fold cats and kittens are perfectly cute and healthy!

#3 – Sphynx

The Sphynx is probably the most well-known of the hairless cats and its kittens just look like little baby versions of the adults. They might not be everyone’s favorite, but we sure think they’re cute!

#4 – Bengal

Bengal kittens look just like little wild cats with their beautiful markings and playful personalities. Although there is no wild blood in Bengals, they certainly are born with their exotic looks and are becoming increasingly popular.

#5 – Ragdoll

Ragdolls are named due to their tendency to go limp when picked up or held and this starts at an early age. Although kittens might be a little more wiggly, they’re relatively very calm when handled and make great companions for children.

#6 – Munchkin

The Munchkin appears to have a permanent kitten-like look, but baby Munchkins are even cuter! These little cats are a dwarf breed, meaning they’ve got extra short legs!

#7 – Siamese

Siamese kittens look like miniature versions of their adult family members, but they’re maybe just a little bit cuter. These kittens are very active and playful and make excellent family companions.

#8 – Maine Coon

These adorable kittens will grow into one of the largest domestic cat breeds around. Due to their size and great personalities, it’s no wonder the Maine Coon is such a popular choice for cat owners.

#9 – Savannah

These beautiful hybrids were created by crossing the African Serval with the domestic house cat. The result is an incredible hybrid that’s now been completely domesticated, but maintains its exotic appearance. They’re size alone makes them look like wild animals and their kittens look like they just came out of the jungle. 

#10 – Devon Rex
