As we know cats are prolific breeders, the Alley cats outnumbered any other breeds in North America, as there are hundreds of them in the streets of North America. 

You can easily find out the breed of the cat by means of its appearance. Some people classify the cat breeds on color. But identifying a cat based on the color is not an easy task except Siamese cat. Most of the Siamese cats are almost black. You can easily identify a Persian cat by their hair and body type.
