Some Cat Breeds With Wonderfully Big Ears
On the off chance that you’re looking for a cat with big ears (and who wouldn’t be?) I thought I’d cover some breeds that have big ears:
Cornish Rex – One of my first cats was a Cornish Rex, so they hold a place dear to me. With their small, triangle-like heads and large ears, the Cornish is a unique-looking cat.
Devon Rex – Not to be confused with the Cornish Rex, the Devon Rex has slightly larger, lower set ears. They also have shorter whiskers and a more muscular appearance.
Abyssinian – Abyssinians are fairly rare, so you’re forgiven if you’ve never heard of this breed. They look a little wild and have huge ears though, that’s what they’re known for.
Sphynx – Probably the most recognisable of all cat breeds is the Sphynx. This is because they are one of the very few hairless cats – and they just so happen to have massive ears too!
You don’t have to have a breed that genetically has big ears though, any cat can have big ears.
The best part is, you can’t always tell when they’re kittens. I’ve known kittens that looked like everything was perfectly in proportion – only to see their ears continue to grow… and grow!
Good luck with your search for the perfect name, I hope you found what you’re looking for here – if not, here are some more name lists that may help:
