The appearance of a kitten in the house is the final stage, the result of a conscious and conscious choice, primarily of the breed of the future pet. If you approach the question of a pet differently, then the matter can end very badly. In the best case, the kitten will return to the family of the mother cat, and in the worst case, it will go outside. So how to choose a kitten breed?
Life style, social status, marital status of the future owner are very important. For example, in families with children under 3 years old, it is generally not recommended to keep cats and dogs.
Pensioners, unemployed people have the opportunity to spend a lot of time with a pet, giving it maximum attention. For them, the most suitable choice would be such "companionable" and sociable breeds of cats as Siamese, Persian, Abyssinian, Burmese, Turkish van and, if living space allows, even Maine Coon.
For a lonely working person, a cat that perfectly tolerates loneliness, does not get depressed and is able to entertain itself is suitable. These include cats of the breed: Russian Blue, Scottish Fold, Tonkinesis, Balinese, British Shorthair, American Wirehaired, which received this name not for its coarse coat, but rather for its appearance. Long-haired cats are not suitable for a person who spends most of their time at work. Persians and other long-haired breeds need regular and thorough grooming: washing, combing. Do not forget about frequent cleaning of the apartment. While representatives of short-haired breeds do not cause such trouble.
For a family with children, you should choose breeds that are tolerant and highly adaptable. Burmese cats, Scottish Fold, Abyssinian are excellent companions for playing and watching football matches, TV series, patient with constant carrying in their arms. Peaceful, affectionate and sociable cats-dachshunds Munchkin are wonderfully suitable for a family. By the way, it is better not to buy a long-haired kitten for keeping in a family. This is especially true for a family with small children. Children adore cats, but awkwardly pressed fur, accidental discomfort caused to a cat, can become a source of conflict between a child and a pet. In addition, short-haired breeds tend to be more playful, more outgoing and tolerant.
