From Persian kitties to British Shorthairs, it's clear cats with flat faces have totally captivated the world. Now starring in popular cat videos and countless Instagram accounts, flat-faced felines are getting more attention and adoration than ever. Considering how cute they can be, we're certainly not surprised.
Their flat faces are typically caused by a genetic trait that's popular in the cat breeding industry. This trait actually involves cat's skull shape — a shortened and broad one — which ultimately gives the cat's face that smushed appearance.
If you're interested in adopting a flat-faced cat, there are a few important factors to consider. They often require special attention in various aspects of their health, including vision, respiration, and dental care. Furthermore, many cats with flat faces tend to have long hair that needs to be groomed regularly. Make no mistake, these are not low-maintenance pets. But if you think you have what it takes to welcome a flat-faced fur baby into your home, your hardest decision may be picking which one! The cats in each and every breed are just too cute for words.
