About This Quiz

You have to wonder how it came to be that cats were domesticated in the first place. If you've ever experienced an angry, wild cat, you know they're not the most pleasant creatures to be around. It must have been one of those super friendly cats that you run across every now and then that first got the ball rolling. It wandered by some farmer, rubbed against his leg, maybe rolled over to play with something and get a belly rub. Once that happens, they're hard to resist.

Now that we have cats all around the world, and there are so many different breeds, you can really see how some cats have personality traits that set them apart from others. They're a lot like people - some can be playful, some standoffish, and some are just wacky. Our pets really are a reflection of ourselves. So maybe that means you have a little bit of cat inside you. Maybe your inner cat is just meowing to get out right this very minute. One way to find out for sure is to take this quiz! Tell us a bit about yourself, and we'll figure out precisely what breed best represents your inner self. Go on an try it; it'll be purr-fect.  See what we did there?
