These Are the Most Expensive Cat Breeds in the World

Khao Manee

4. Khao Manee

The name Khao Manee translates to ‘White Gem.’ A very rare breed, the Khao Manee trace their ancient origin to Thailand with ancestral roots that date back up to hundreds of years.

These cats are believed to bring luck and prosperity to their owners and are a popular choice of pet amongst the Thai royalty.

Also known as Khao Plort or the Diamond Eye Cat for their pure white coats and azure blue eyes (which may vary to ambers and green), Khao Manees with heterochromatic traits are considered the best. Pedigreed kitties of this breed may fetch up to $11,000.
