13 Most Expensive Cat Breeds in the World

Our pets are like family. And some people would spare no expense when it comes to adding a new furry family member, especially when it comes to cats. And some cat breeds can be pretty pricey. Prices can vary based on whether you’re purchasing a cat as a household pet or if you intend to purchase a show-quality cat. But either way, you’re going to shell out a significant amount of cash.

Some animal lovers are willing to pay serious money for a furry friend. Back in 2014, a man paid more than $2 million for a Tibetan mastiff puppy. But what will people pay when it comes to cats?

One breed you won’t see on our list is the controversial Ashera. The company that first starting selling these cats (Lifestyle Pets) was accused of selling Savannah cats and then renaming them Ashera. So, if the accusations are true, that would be like listing the Savannah cat twice.

Here are 13 of the most expensive cats in the world. Is your cat on the list?

The first American wirehair was discovered in 1966 on Council Rock Farm in Verona, New York. Both adult males and females can weigh up to 12 pounds.
