Top 5 Most Affectionate Cat Breeds

Cats are looked at as cold animals that are highly independent.

Well, WRONG!

Compared to dogs, these claims seem very true, but in reality, cats are very loving, affection, and quite loyal animals.

The way they express love is different, yes. But we all have different ways of showing love and affections.. so let's kick this stereotype to the curb!  

#5 Persian Cats

They love to be stroked, hugged and their favorite thing is some quality quiet time in the lap of their favorite people.

They are good-natured, elegant and very relaxed. Persian Cats are really loving cats that enjoy spending time with their owners, even if they look sad all the time, they really are not!


#4 Exotic Shorthair

Exotic Shorthairs are the perfect chill cat. They are love to spend time in safe environments where they can relax fully in the company of their beloved owners.

Not number one when it comes to the most active of breeds, but we can guarantee that they compensate with their love for showing affection.



#3 Burmese

Burmese Cats are really friendly. 

They will fight for your attention and love nothing more than curling up on the sofa with their favorite human.

They will enjoy long naps next to you, and the warmth of your love.


#2 Maine Coon

Maine Coons are very friendly and social, and will be happy in a multi-cat household or a house with dogs.

They are confident and loving, but don't expect attention as much. They will enjoy your attention and many will ‘talk’ to you through their adorable meows.

Quite friendly with strangers too, they bond quickly with anyone willing to stroke their fluffy fur.


#1 Sphynx

The Sphynx is the breed considered the champion of the friendliest breed.

There is no doubt that the Sphynx loves their humans, affection, and a good play session to bound even more with their owner.

Perhaps they are so loving with their human companions because they rely on us to keep warm and clean a lot more than other breeds.


If your cat didn't make it in this top 5 don't worry, we believe all cats are loving creatures that communicate love in a different way. It's up to you to learn the love language of your cat and show him/her the best care possible.
