The Different Personalities of Cat Breeds
Some people don’t realize that cats come in different breeds. While many dog breeds are well-known, cat breeds get less attention. However, just like dogs, cats come in many different breeds and their personality, among other things, may be impacted by their breed. If you have questions about cat breeds and live in the Las Vegas or Henderson area, feel free to reach out to A Cat Hospital. Our veterinarians are happy to help. For now, let's take a quick look at some of the different cat breeds and their personalities. If you are welcoming a new cat to your home, make sure you stop by our veterinary clinic.
Cat Breeds and Their Personalities
First, remember that each cat is different and while personality traits are often common among certain breeds, individual cats may have a different personality. Currently, the Cat Fanciers Association recognizes 45 different breeds. Let’s take a look at some cat breeds and their personalities.
Abyssinian: These sleek beauties are well known for being very active, but also quite affectionate.
Balinese: A slender beauty, often with splashes of long hair. These cats are known for being vocal, while also active and affectionate.
Bengal: Looking like small leopards, Bengals are athletic cats known for being curious, perhaps too curious for some, as they are often getting into trouble.
Bombay: Featuring slick, black hair, the Bombay is a known lap cat. Know for being playful but also very affectionate.
Burmese: These stocky cats love people, sometimes more than other pets and animals.
LaPerm: Many active cat breeds avoid lap time, but not the LaPerm. This fuzzy beauty is plenty playful but often willing to cuddle in your lap.
Maine Coon: Perhaps the largest domestic cat breed, the Maine Coon is a rugged, majestic animal. While sometimes not as cuddly as other breeds, the Maine Coon is generally an easy going cat.
RagaMuffin: Often among the most docile breeds, the RagaMuffin loves people and spending quality time with family.
