These Are the Top Friendliest Cat Breeds

There are plenty of cat breeds that are naturally friendly, and below, we will take a look at some of the top friendliest ones. If you’re a cat person but want one that loves to cuddle and play with you, continue reading and check out these breeds.

Bombay

This breed is also a mixed one, hailing from the pairing of a sable Burmese and a black American shorthair. The Bombay first showed up in the ’50s and was officially recognized as a breed in the late ’70s. The beautiful coat and large, expressive eyes are just the first things that you notice. Then, the kitty will show its true character as it jumps up and demands attention and cuddles. They love to get love and will probably knead and purr once you give them what they are asking for.

Maine Coon

These giant cats originated as a mix between the local shorthair cats and the cats of the seafarers of the 1800s. The result of these two breeds getting together was large, sturdy cats with beautiful, long coats and tails that look like a raccoon. This majestic looking cat is larger than the normal house cat, but that size is proportionate to the amount of love they want to get. Friendly and playful, the Maine coon plays well with other pets and humans, including children. They do require more grooming, but the love they give is well worth the extra work.

Ragdoll

This breed was born in the ’60s. Though no one is certain, they are most likely the result of a breeding between a Persian female and a Birman male. This mixture produced a cat that has a relaxed attitude, and they like to floor like a ragdoll. These cats are sometimes called “puppy cats.” This is because they are very lovable and playful. They love hanging out with their humans, and this includes walks on leashes and even playing fetch. Don’t worry about the family dog, either. They will love the dog just as much as you.

Tonkinese

In the ’50s, a Siamese cat was crossed with a Burmese cat, and what resulted was the Tonkinese. The mixture of the two breeds, of course, yielded a cat that inherited traits from both sides, and this includes friendliness and playfulness. Tonkinese kitties are attention hogs and have a tendency to not leave you alone until they get the attention that they crave. This craving for attention extends to any human in the vicinity, as they are very social.

Burmese

After what looked like a dark-colored Siamese was mated with a Seal Point Siamese in the ’30s, the Burmese breed came into being. Throughout the years, the breed has been bred to have a darker coat. The result was an athletic cat with a soft coat and a love of affection. Burmese cats share the talkative nature of the Siamese but also retain a loving nature and friendliness. Even after your kitten has become a cat, they will still be playful.

Siamese

This breed finds its origins in the beautiful Southeast Asian nation of Thailand, where it was once said that they were sacred to Buddhist temples. The breed found its way west in the late 1800s and has since become one of the most popular breeds, probably because they are beautiful and very friendly. Siamese cats may be best known for their talkative nature, but this is just part of their communication system to let you know they are ready for some love. They bond with their humans very deeply but are still willing to get and share affection with others.
