French Cat Breeds

What Cat Breeds Originated In France?

France is home to 3 unique cat breeds; Birman, Chartreux, and the Serrade Petit cat.

How Do The French Name Their Cats?

When choosing pet names, the French pick a name based on the year the cat was born. Each year is designated a letter and the cat name that is picked should start with that year’s letter. These letters run in alphabetical order.

For example, the year is 2021, technically 21 so the first letter of all purebred French cat names this year starts with the letter S. Next year will be 2022, so most French cat names will start with T. And the cycle has been and will continue this way. And the same for dog names too.

This is what the French do. And so should you!
