What Breed of Cat Best Fits My Personality?
Felines are overflowing with character, and some of their traits will blend better than others with your own personality and lifestyle. If you’re considering a cat companion, our team is here to help you find the perfect match!
First: Assess Your Lifestyle
- Are you away from home a lot? Perhaps a kitten that requires a lot of attention isn’t the best option for you. And along those same lines, if your cat will be spending a lot of time alone, you may want to consider adopting more than one cat!
- How big is your living space? A Bengal cat that needs a lot of room probably isn’t the best choice for apartment living. On the flip side, a cat with a quiet demeanor may feel overwhelmed in a large house.
- Are you a first-time cat owner? Consider adopting an older cat with a calm disposition.
- Check your finances. Before adopting any pet, it’s important to be sure there’s room in the budget for routine checkups and the possibility of emergency care.
Which Type of Cat is Right for Me?
There are lots of different cat breeds to choose from, and there’s one out there who will make the perfect feline friend for you! Sum up your own personality in one word, then see if there’s a cat with similar traits below.
If you love staying inside, Russian Blues and Himalayans aren’t overly active and make great, cuddly companions for homebodies.
Cats and thrill seekers don’t normally go hand-in-hand, but the Manx actually enjoys long car rides and playing in bodies of water. They’re easy to leash train, and can learn to play fetch!
Got energy to spare? A high-energy breed like a Siamese cat could be just the feisty feline you’re looking for.
If your idea of the perfect evening is curling up with a good book or a movie, breeds like Ragdolls, Persians, and British Shorthairs will equally enjoy the slower pace.
Bombay cats are highly social, extroverted cats who love to follow their humans around like a furry little shadow. They’re also vocal and enjoy “chatting” with anyone within earshot.
It’s okay to crave companionship, and a Devon Rex will gladly stick to you like glue once she’s done grabbing your attention with one of her playful performances.
If you’re looking for a big, warm ball of love, the immensely loyal, lovey-dovey Maine Coon is the right choice.
