There are numerous cat breeds and it is important to choose one that is right for you and your family.

 

When choosing a cat the first thing you need to think about is whether you will be able to deal with a cat that is vocal.  Some breeds can be almost noisy.  Many people do not mind this vocalization, as they know that the cat is merely communicating with them, but it might be a problem if you live in an apartment or you already have a house of loud kids. 

 

Vocal breeds include:

  Siamese

  Korat

  Bumese

 

Quiet cat breeds include:

  Scottish Fold

  Somali

  America Curl

 

We all know that cats decide who they want to cuddle with and when.  This also means that you can choose a breed that loves to cuddle or, if youre not the cuddly type, then you may want a cat that is more aloof.  Aloof cats are able to occupy themselves, while cuddly cats need more attention.  Your lifestyle will also help you decide which type of cat you will want.  Remember that cuddly cats are also best for children.

 

Cuddly cat breeds include:

  Snowshoe

  Abyssinian

  Maine Coon

  Ragdoll

  Tonkinese

  Himalayan Persian

 

Less sociable cats include:

  Norwegian Forest Cat

  Nebelung

  Russian Shorthair

 

If you want a cat that is not always in mischief or one that needs to be able to amuse itself, then do not choose:

  Sphynx

  Siamese

  Rex

  Balinese

  British Angora breeds

 

If you are a homebound person or if you have a lot of free time these breeds can be excellent for you.  If you are not home very often, be prepared to come home to the unexpected.

 

While you are looking for the right cat breed, dont be too caught up in these personality features.  Personalities will differ in the breeds as well and will have a lot to do with the environment that the cat grew up in or is going to grow up in.  One of the most important features to consider is whether you want a short hair or a longhaired breed.  People who dont have a lot of time to spend on grooming will want to go with short.  Grooming adult longhaired cats can be time consuming, although the cats will be beautiful.  If you neglect the long hair, however, it will definitely become a tangled and matted mess.  This means that you may have to have the cat shaven and start all over with their long hair. 

 

Once you have considered these different features and personality traits, then you can begin looking at the different breeds and begin to search for the one that sounds like it will fit your style.
