What would a list be without some controversy? Luckily, the Ashera cat is surrounded by it.
Nonetheless, this hybrid still claims the top spot on our list of the most expensive cat breeds in the world.
If you want an Ashera, you may have to cough up a whopping $20,000-$25,000. Some Ashera cats even sell for as much as $125,000.
What is the reason for this hefty price tag?
Well, it is mostly rarity. A Los Angeles-based company only breeds about 5 of these gorgeous felines per year. So if you ever manage to get one, you will be among one of the very few to ever own this remarkable cat breed.
Aesthetically, this cat breed looks very similar to a snow leopard in terms of its pattern. Its temperament and behavior resemble that of Savannah cats.
But what on Earth is the controversy that surrounds it?
Well, some experts argue that genetic testing shows that some Ashera cats are actually Savannah F1 cats.
Regardless, this wraps up our list of most expensive cat breeds in the world.
