Considering a cat companion
Your roommate moved out and you’re now enjoying the silence of your apartment. Maybe it’s a bit too quiet… if you’re considering filling the empty space with a purring fur-ball, you must know a few things about cat personalities. Here is what we like.
Persian: their pansy-like faces and long flowing coats brought them the first position in popularity. Excellent for indoor living with a sweet, gentle personality, and melodious voice, one gaze into their big eyes and you’re under their spell. A daily run-through with a metal comb and a face wash is recommended, as well as regular baths. They live up to 20 years and are not big fans of high jumping and climbing, just make sure they have they’re scratching spot, to keep them and your property manager happy.
Bengal: a mini tiger for energetic people. These cats are busy by nature and show affection whenever they want to. Playing, chasing, climbing, and investigating are the most used words in their language. Unlike most cats, they enjoy water and might join you in brushing your teeth or taking a shower. The perfect way to start the day! Expect them to follow you wherever you go, as they know that’s where the excitement is.
Exotic Shorthair: relatives of the Persians, without the time allocated to grooming. With a quiet and sweet disposition, peaceful, loyal, and very easy going, they love sitting on your lap as you read a book or watch TV.
Ragdoll: crave for affection and your undivided attention. They’ll run at the door to greet you, and follow you around the house. You can teach them to play fetch and expect them to come when you call for them. Not overly active, they’re exceptionally gentle and laidback.
Oriental Shorthair: the embodiment of loyalty in cats. Very sociable, lively and intelligent, they’ll find the sweetest way to interrupt you in your busiest moments with a little nudge or nuzzle. They’ll tell you all about their day and will comment upon everything you do. Consider a playmate as they don’t like being an only child.
