What is my cat’s personality?
This question can also read ‘what breed is my cat?’ This is not a trick question. Also, we’re pro any cat, regardless of what breed they are or aren’t. (Read about purebred cats, pros, and cons). The reason we ask is because if you know your cat is a particular cat breed, this carries oodles of genealogical data.
For example, some breeds like working out, but others prefer the chill. Also, you’ll find some cats are all about the gossip whereas others may be the shy introvert side of things.
If you’re keen on finding out these breed traits, read about some popular breeds here:
- What cat breed are you?
- Friendliest cat breeds (by no means an exhaustive list!)
- Different cat breeds (also, not an exhaustive list)
Anyhoo, these aren’t strict parameters, because every cat also just has their own caternality (yes, we made that word up). These breed insights are just going to give you that little bit of an edge in understanding more about cats and their needs.
