Most Expensive Cat

Is $42,000 too much to pay for a house cat? Well, various sources have reported that a London, England resident didn’t think so when she purchased her second-generation Bengal cat in 1998 for about £25,320. This expensive cat was listed in the Guiness’ number one spot for most expensive cat breed purchased. They aren’t normally that expensive, but they don’t come cheap. Bengals can cost anywhere from $970 – $4000. The International Cat Association, recognizes the Bengal as a pedigree of cat, however the Cat Fanciers’ Association, the largest and oldest registry of cats, does not. This is because they have ‘wild’ or ‘non-domestic’ blood in their recent heritage. The second-generation Bengal in question was reportedly a hybrid of a wild Asian leopard cat bred with a domestic one.

An “Ashera”

British entrepreneur Simon Brodie also offered some expensive cats—the hypoallergenic cat by Allerca for $6,000 and the Ashera by Lifestyle Pets for $28,000. The hypoallergenic claim, however, was never independently proven and three Ashera cats seized on their way to the Netherlands were proven to be resold Savannah cats originally from a US breeder.

Any cat may provide a (feline) lifetime of entertainment and companionship for their owners. However, a new Lexus convertible and a cat from the SPCA might be a better way to spend your money than $40,000+ for the most expensive cat in the world.
