Since the 20th century we have managed to create a large number of new breeds of cats by breeding the original domestic cat with other wildcat breeds. Other breeds are the result of continuously breeding cats that have a spontaneously occurring mutation. However, unlike dog breeds, different breeds of cats are much more similar in their size and look. This is because dogs have a variety of different functions, whereas cats only have two main functions: hunting and being an adorable pet!
