10 Friendly Cat Breeds that Make Perfect Pet

Maine Coon

This shaggy, rugged cat, with its tufted paws and soulful eyes, has captivated families for years. Maine coons, who are energetic and can be trained to perform tricks, have been known to follow their owners about the home and entertain them with their antics.

Abyssinian

The Abyssinian, one of the oldest cat breeds, is intelligent, curious, and passionately loyal. It loves people, but prefers to be near them rather than on their laps. This breed is clever, energetic, and outgoing. It enjoys playing with humans, but it is also happy to entertain itself or play with other pets in the house.

Birman

The person who called dogs "man's best friend" evidently had never met a Birman. This sociable cat is affectionate, lively, and eager to please. With its beautiful blue eyes and precious face, it appears as nice as it acts. The Birman is a terrific choice for a household with children and other pets, as well as a great cat for solitary people.

Cornish Rex

The Cornish rex is not just one of the friendliest cat breeds to humans, but also to dogs and other pets. This breed, with its unusual bat-like ears, petite stature, and huge, expressive eyes, is recognized for being lively and playful, and its coat is as soft as a lamb's. Its origins are in Cornwall, England.

Devon Rex

The Devon rex is the most social breed. This cheerful, fun-loving cat insists on being at its human's side and dislikes them when they leave. This cat's temperament is as silly as its appearance, with huge ears and a tiny, elfin face.

Ragdoll

The ragdoll cat is large and friendly, and was developed for its relaxed nature—hence the name, which refers to its tendency to fall limp when hugged. This nice cat is well-behaved and devoted. It is not commonplace for the ragdoll to meet family members upon their return home and spend hours snuggling by their side, staring at them with its stunning blue eyes.

Ragamuffin

Owners claim that once you have a ragamuffin cat, you'll never want another breed. The ragamuffin is sweet, docile, and even-tempered, and gets along well with both children and other pets. With soulful eyes and a luxuriant long coat, this lovely and happy-go-lucky kitty is equally satisfied living in a studio apartment or a mansion, as long as it is surrounded by its loving family.

Persian

Siamese cats are believed to have originated in temples in Thailand, formerly known as Siam. Perhaps this is where they formed their strong affection of humans. These cats adore their family, and when they don't get their way, they're really outspoken about it. If that doesn't work, they can inspire you with their expressive blue eyes.

Sphynx

While the appearance of this hairless cat breed may be unappealing to some, its disposition is delightful. The sphynx can be quite the clown, attempting to be the focus of attention by its antics. While these cats are lots of energy, they're also renowned to be fantastic at cuddling with humans, dogs, and other cats.
