The 5 Most Affectionate Cat Breeds

The 5 Most Affectionate Cat BreedsWhen compared to dogs, people are under the assumption that cats are independent and unfriendly. There are some cat breeds out there that just don’t like tons of attention and cuddling. However, there are also some cat breeds that love be affectionate, love to cuddle and love to bond with their human family. Here are some of the most affectionate cat breeds.

Ragdoll

Ragdoll cats are probably the most relaxed, laid-back cats in the world. They are called Ragdolls because, much like a ragdoll, they go limp when you pick them up. They don’t like to venture off on their own, but would rather just lay on someone’s lap and chill for a couple hours. Not only are Ragdolls affectionate, but they are patient and tolerant as well.

Egyptian Mau

The Egyptian Mau is known to be one of the oldest breed of cats in the world. It is said that they date back to the time of the Egyptians. While this cat breed may look much like a wild cat, they are in fact very affectionate cats. These cats have been known to wag their tails, much like a dog does when they are happy and excited. They also love to knead their front paws on the lap of whomever they may be sitting on.

Maine Coon

Maine Coon cats are nicknamed Gentle Giants, mostly because that is exactly what they are. They are rather large cats who crave attention from their human family. They have been known to want to constantly follow their human family members around, often being clingy at times.

Tonkinese

Tonkinese cats are a mixture of Siamese and Burmese cat breeds. This cat breed is well-known for being friendly, warm and outgoing. They also tend to be more laidback than their Siamese counterparts. The Tonkinese cat is quite active, enjoying playing with their human family members, but they also love to cuddle on their laps just as much.

Siamese

Yes, it is true that Siamese cats can be rather demanding at times. However, it is also true that these cats love spending all the time they can with their human family. This cat breed is always affectionate with all members of the family, but they usually take a keen interest in one family member over the others.

    This is so nice! We have a cat at home and he’s really sweet especially with my twins. I think this post is going to help people who are thinking of adopting a cat!

    I am a cat lover! Love them all! Well, almost all of them. I really don’t think I could get all warm and fuzzy over a bald cat. My sister has a mancoon, Niko, and that cat has so much personality, is way over jealous of the other cat, Bella, in the house and he wants love all the time!

    My sister owns a Persian, and it’s kind of grumpy. Maybe she should get another cat with any of these breeds. 😉
