May 16, 2020
There are cat lovers who treat their little companions like kings and queens! Well, in this case, here are the top 4 most expensive cats on the planet who truly are treated like royalty! You won’t find these felines in your local shelter and if you want one, I’d suggest you start saving up your dimes and nickles! Not only are these cats gorgeous but come with jaw-dropping price tags.
The Persian - $3,000 to $15,000
Although this cat is very popular and owned by many cat lovers, they still come with a hefty price tag. The Persia cat originates from Iran where it is often called by its regional name “Shirazi”. They have good personalities and are often found in the lap of a celebrity. They are best known for their long silky coats and their pressed, flat faces. They are often called the “Shih Tzu” of the cat world, though I have no idea why. If you want a Persian, be ready to have between $3,000 and $15,000 on hand!
The Bengal - $7,000 to $10,000
The Bengal was specifically bred to look like their larger cousins in the jungles. They are somewhat of a mystery as no one knows who started breeding them or from where. They are very playful and can be stubborn from time to time.
Some believe the Bengal is a little on the wild side and recommend buying the fourth generation. Despite there somewhat wild look, these little sweethearts do not bite or scratch any more than you standard tabby. A really high-quality Bengal will cost around $7,000 and can even go for as high as $10,000.
The Savannah - $20,000
While there are cat critics that do not believe this is a real breed of cat, the Savannah is recognized by the International Cat Association since 2001. You will rarely see this cat due to its size and cross-breeding. This is a domestic cat bred with the African Serval.
These cats can reach up to 20 lbs and can seem a little intimidating due to their size. People who own Savannahs walk them on leashes for a number of reasons including the enormous price tag that can run up to $20,000. Keep in mind, if you want a Savannah cat, be ready to dig deeply into your savings or take out a loan. Those that are willing to pay a large amount of money realize these are exceptional gorgeous cats!
Ashera - $28,000
To date, the most expensive cat on the planet is the Ashera priced at $28,000! The Ashera has a lot in common with the Savannah cat because this domestic beauty is often bred with the Serval. The serval is native to Africa in sub-Saharan countries but not in Northern Africa. This is a medium-sized cat that stands 21 to 24 inches at the shoulders and weighs 20 to 40 lbs. It doesn’t stop there, breeders also decided to increase their genetic mix by adding the leopard to create this exotic blend.
You might think this cat should never be around children, but it’s actually bred in a domestic setting. Its marvelous blend has made this cat one of the most popular cats in the world. The Ashera is not a common sight among felines because this beautiful cat comes with a starting price of $28,000!
