In a general sense, with regards to pets, cats are much better suited to Belleview apartment life. Many are quiet, clean, and eager to curl up with their desired human. However, it is indeed true that particular cat breeds are most suited for apartment living than others. The breeds that offer the best fit are typically the more social, lower-energy animals that bond well with their people. We share here seven breeds that rank among the best suited for apartment life.
1. British Shorthair
This short-haired cat is a favorite for apartment-dwellers because they are independent but still really affectionate and loving. While British Shorthairs love to play, when playtime is over, they are low-key and tend to entertain themselves. They make great apartment pets because they do not exactly need that much grooming and easily adapt to their owner’s personality and lifestyle.
If you like your cats best on the quiet but fluffy side, you can’t get one better than a Persian. These cats are attractive and warm, preferring a long nap to any uncontrollable play. Persians are about as mellow as it gets. They, furthermore, do well in apartments since they don’t demand a lot of space to roam.
3. Scottish Fold
Scottish Folds are a great fit for apartment life because they are very affectionate but not too clingy. In addition, these cats are typically relaxed, rarely becoming moody or freaked out. Intelligent and adaptable, Scottish Folds like a stable routine and a great deal of care from their owners.
One of the most popular cat breeds, Ragdolls are big, beautiful, and sociable companions. So much like Persians, their coats are quite fluffy and may need some extra grooming. But, admittedly, they are fairly higher on the energy scale than their fluffier cousins. Ragdolls love their people and will want to play and snuggle with you just as long as you will allow them.
5. Russian Blue
If allergies are a matter of concern, you might consider adopting a Russian Blue. These short-haired cats have fur that is less likely to trigger an allergy attack. But definitely, there are various reasons to go for a Russian Blue for an apartment pet. They are curious, adoringly playful, and very loyal to their favorite person.
6. American Shorthair
If you’re looking for a great family cat, you can’t go wrong with an American Shorthair. These cats are very low-maintenance and like best to take plenty of naps. They are usually good with people of all ages as well as other pets. All an American Shorthair likes best is a perch by a window and your best back-scratching skills. They mostly live long lives, making them a superb choice for any person who wants to enjoy multiple years of companionship with their furry friend.
Last in order but certainly not the least, another breed with a long, silky coat, Birmans are the friendliest cats around. While a bit more difficult to come across, Birmans make great apartment pets because they thrive on playing and cuddling with their favorite people. When they are not playing, Birmans are usually sleeping or grooming themselves. All that hair, certainly, takes rather a bit more work to keep looking its prettiest.
