Look at the gorgeous fella. The Savannah cat. The Savannah cat is said to be the largest domestic cat breed. This large is a mix of cross breeding the Siamese cat with the Serval cat. The Serval cat is one of Africa's wild cats. These large cats are not much different than regular cat breeds, but the Savannah cat still possesses that wild hunting instincts much more than the common domestic cat. What this really means is that make sure you don't have any chickens or other pet birds around. You may come home seeing your Savannah licking his lips with a feather stuck to the side. So how big does the Savannah really get? The Savannah can reach well over 25 pounds up to 30 pounds. That's a lot of weight for a cat. This cat is even bigger than a lot of toy dogs.
This is not a stuffed toy sold in a toy shop. The Ragdoll is a large cat with very long hair. Almost like the rock-star of the cat world.

This cat has a nice calm temperament and people who love cats but prefer the quieter or not so active feline will find the ragdoll their perfect choice. But quite does not mean that this feline doesn't require the love and affection it still craves. The male ragdolls can weigh in at 15-20 pounds while females start at a much lighter weight of 10-pounds.
The Bobtail cat is basically a large cat breed which has a very short tail. The word "bob" is short for Bobbette. Which means cut off. The American Bob Tail cat is not the only known "bob" in this class. There are Japanese Bob tails and also the Kurlian Bob tail. The Bobtail cat’s short or absent tail comes about due to a genetic mutation such as is found in the Manx cat, leading to the development of a stunted tail or no tail at all. The American Bobtail is the largest of the Bobtail cat types, with females averaging 7-11lb and males reaching 12-16lb as standard.
