 FUTURE CAT BREEDS?
This is a history of cat breeding developments in the 21st and 22nd Centuries and is based on extrapolation from genetics knowledge and breeding trends during the late twentieth/very early twenty-first centuries.
The trademarking of breeds and/or breed-names to circumvent/shortcut the route to breed recognition was also ended in part due to GCR rules which disallowed trademarked breeds/breed-names and in part due to the outcry over an attempt by a French couple to trademark their own children.
Cat fanciers continue to hope that these will turn up during the 22nd Century although the huge reduction of free-breeding cats around the world (the virtual extinction of stray and feral cats in Australia due to sterility viruses) means that fewer random mutations are being seen.

 Cat Breeds, Types, Variants and Hybrids
