Many, when going to get a cat, try to choose a pet according to their character. Someone seeks to bring more comfort to the house with the help of a cat. For those who are looking for an obedient and good-natured cat, you should pay attention to the breeds that have won the fame of the most affectionate: Ragdolls, Angora, Burmese and Devon Rex.
Communication with an affectionate cat is not only pleasant, but also useful. At the same time, a person's nervous tension is relieved, negative energy leaves. Cat owners have healthier, better sleep and less aggression.
The Ragdoll is a cat breed that appeared in the United States in 1965. According to one of the legends of the American Anne Baker, an angora cat Josephine brought an unusual litter. The kittens were distinguished by phlegm and low muscle tone.
Perhaps one of the most affectionate cats can be safely considered the representatives of the American Ragdoll breed, which translated from English means "ragdoll". Angora and Persians were used to breed these cats, giving the new breed their elegant appearance and the best qualities of character. After all, breeders specially selected the most peaceful cats.
Ragdoll cats differ from their counterparts by constant muscle relaxation, which is why they do not jump very successfully from a height, but they are completely calm in the hands of a person. These affectionate animals are incredibly attached to the owner, but at the same time they will not mind if one of the guests strokes them. Of course, such a cat is not averse to playing, especially in youth, but nevertheless she is an obvious phlegmatic and prefers to lie, moreover, closer to the owner.
Fuzzies and not so
Those who would like to see a more playful animal in their home, but just as affectionate, are advised to pay attention to Devon Rex, Burmese or Angora cats. The undoubted decoration of any home is the semi-long-haired white angora cats. They are quite active, sociable and well trained. Their disadvantages include a pronounced attachment to only one of the household members, on the other hand, it is worth noting that they do not like to be alone.
Calm and affectionate Burmese love to spend time on the lap of the owners. Compared to ragdolls, these cats are more active, and if they are invited to play, they will always take it with enthusiasm.
Among short-haired cats, Devon Rexes are considered the most generous for affection, which, however, are distinguished by a restless disposition. For their playfulness and sociability, these animals are even called "cat-dog" or "cat-monkey". Devon Rexes like to get closer to the owner, and ideally sit on his shoulder and purr. This cat is a great companion that will support the person in the game and will be gentle if cuddled.
Devon Rex cats are endowed with rare, soft, very short and curly hair, which never causes allergies, even in people predisposed to it.
It is worth noting that among Burmese and Angora there are unfriendly pets who prefer loneliness, but these are only exceptions, which, as you know, confirm the rule.
