A killer who walks by himself: the most dangerous cat breeds
If you think that a domestic cat is a cute and harmless pet, then do not be mistaken. First, any cat is by nature a predator and a ruthless killer. Secondly, not all breeds are as harmless as it may seem from the outside. And this is always worth remembering, especially if you live with one of the cats listed below.

One of the most ancient breeds of cats, which has an unusual appearance that resembles a Cougar, has a very difficult character. This cat requires education from the moment of appearance in the house, and if this does not happen — prepare for the fact that the pet will not only be aggressive, but also vindictive. However, education and training will turn the Abyssinian into a great friend.
A breed that also looks like a predator-the spotted coat evokes associations with a leopard. Active character, hunting instincts combined with a lack of upbringing can bring a lot of problems to the owner. Bengals do not tolerate any aggression from humans and are always ready to respond in kind.
British shorthair cat
One of the most beautiful cats, which is characterized by a wayward character. If you do not engage in the education of the British, then this is a fairly heavy cat with an independent character that can cause a lot of problems. And do not be misled by the cute appearance of the animal.
Dense and strong breed of cats, which has developed hunting instincts and extremely independent character. All this, as with other breeds listed in this list, in the absence of proper education can turn the Chartreuse from just a pet into a source of danger for its owner.
Perhaps the largest of the domestic cats, which due to its size can pose a threat to people. Provided, however, the wrong upbringing. But if the owners paid attention to their pet, engaged in its education, then you should not be afraid of the Maine Coon.
An unusual breed of cat that is believed to have been bred in Russia. One of the progenitors of the Mekong Bobtail was Siamese cats, which also caused their wayward nature. When threatened, they can seriously injure.
A hybrid of a domestic cat and a predatory Serval, which in principle promises a difficult character of the pet. Savanna has a bright appearance and a fairly high price, but this is the last thing you will remember when the pet responds to some of your actions with aggression.
The breed, which for many is associated with aggression, may in fact be dangerous. The wayward nature combined with sharp claws and teeth, which the Siamese is ready to use at any time, can serve as confirmation of the stereotype of aggressiveness of this breed.
A large and quite heavy cat with a developed hunting instinct and a strong character. If the owner has correctly approached the upbringing of the pet, then there will be no problems with it, but if the person has given up, then the Siberian can be a source of problems and injuries.
Another hybrid-the Abyssinian cat, which was discussed above, and the wild reed cat. The appearance of the predator is supported by the appropriate character — an active pet that requires education and the absence of any, even humorous, aggression on the part of a person. Any display of aggression can lead to a harsh response from Chausie.
However, this does not mean that keeping cats of the above breeds at home is not worth it — a lot of happy owners of these Pets are the best confirmation. But, if you are going to choose a pet from representatives of these breeds, remember that you will need to educate your pet.
