It has has seen amazing growth and support since its early years. has now grown to include almost 30 searchable databases including Persians, Himalayans, Exotics, Maine Coons, Somalis, Turkish Angora, La Perm, Munchkin, Cornish Rex, Ocicats, American Curls, Norwegian Forest Cats, Siberians, Abyssinians, Japanese Bobtails and more.
