3 Cat Breeds That Could Take Over The World

Well, the site is called Article Cats so of course we want to discuss the inevitable feline world domination. I don’t know about you, but I am looking forward to the day when the CatGods rise and overtake humanity. I mean, they sleep 16 hours a day which is more than enough time to do human things.

Upon finishing grueling research that involved countless hours of sifting through cute cat pictures and videos, I have narrowed it down to three specific breeds that could rise to power and start Catpocalypse.

American Curl

This breed originated in California in 1981 when strays showed up on the doorstep of the Rugas family. The female Curl gave birth to a litter of kittens with the same strange ear mutation as their mother. In 1999, the American Curl was the first cat breed to be admitted to the Cat Fanciers’ Association with both long and short hair versions.

Possible World Domination? 

This stray female is the ancestor of every American Curl cat located in the US. This clearly means they are all psychically linked and could rise up in a furry sleeper cell style attack. And you can’t tell me those ears aren’t equipped for supersonic hearing.


Scottish Fold

Also known as the Coupari cat in Canada, the Scottish Fold is yet another totes adorbs kitty with ear mutations that could easily take over the world. The Scottish Fold, originally the “lop-eared” cat, appeared in 1961. Susie was her name and she was a stark white barn cat near Coupar Angus in Perthshire, Scotland. She gave birth to kittens and two of them took on her genetic floppy ears.

Farmer and cat lover William Ross teamed with geneticist Pat Turn to start a breeding program. The result was 76 tiny kittens in the firs three years, 42 with folded ears and 34 with straight. Making the ear mutation the dominate gene. Thanks, science!

Possible World Domination?

Unlike their cousin the Curl, they don’t have the advantage of possible supersonic hearing. Instead, they will take over by worshiping Buddhist deities and lulling us all into a peaceful existence under the Round Eye, Floppy-Ear rulers. Scottish Folds are often found in the “Buddha Position” with their back legs stretched out and tiny cute paws resting on their tummies.


The Savannah is a fairly new breed of domestic cat with an acceptance in 2001 to the International Cat Association. The cat is a cross between a domestic cat and a serval which is a medium-sized, large-eared, wild cat from Africa. The first Savannah was born from a male serval and a female Siamese in 1986.

Possible World Domination? 

Well, I shouldn’t have to specify but they are directly descendent from a WILD ANIMAL! The most interesting, and likely of reasons to take us over, is that a Savannah can actually be bred up to 80 percent back to its original wild ancestor. They are also one of, if not, the largest cat breeds coming in much taller than standard house cats and weighing up to 25lbs. Our only hope lies in their temperament which is said to be closer to dogs. They are fiercely loyal to their owners and can be trained to walk on a leash. Of course, this is all probably a ruse and they have been plotting from the start! By the way, their hiss is said to mimic that of a snake and they can jump about 8 feet straight up from a standing position.

With all of the other ideas about how the world will be dominated, it simply makes sense to consider these three cat breeds as literal options as we work diligently to stock pile goods to survive the end times. Perhaps we should consider stocking up on cat-nip. After all if they are all high perhaps we can come to terms with them and serve as servants much like we already are if we currently live with felines.
