Maine Coones and Bengals make you think of big cat breeds, but there are a few that look small and cute. The Minskins.

Most cats that are domesticated are about nine to 10 pounds. So the bigger ones like Abyssinian, Somali, American Curl and Bombay have great "social personalities", according to Graphiq.

Other cats in the eight to nine-pound range include Bambino, Scottish Fold and Devon Rex cats, while one cat, just in the six-pound range is small and sweet, needing little care.

The smallest one is the Minskin, which is a cross-breed between a Munchkin and a Sphynx, with a weight of four lbs. after growing fully. These are wonderful family pets that show a very low activity level with minimal shedding, according to Catster.

It began to get some recognition on in 1998. By 2005, there were 50 Minskins. They seek to be recognised by the The International Cat Association (TICA).

These adorable cats have short legs, a soft sparse coat, some soft fur "points" on their faces, ears, legs and tail. Its rounded head and large eyes makes it look like a kitten. Being completely adorable, its expression is sweet and wide-eyed.

They are also warm to the touch and love to cuddle---and fee like small, personal heaters.
What it loses in stature and size, it makes up in love and cuddling.
