British Shorthair

The British are some of the most independent cats. Of course, they are very fond of the owner and are endlessly attached to him, but they can do it themselves. They can be left alone in the apartment for several days - and they will not go crazy. The main thing is to feed.

The "British" are distinguished by their intelligence and aristocracy. They will never allow themselves to pounce on a person - unless, of course, he respects the limits of decency. Not too affectionate, but charming, they also need a polite, attentive and calm attitude. They love children, but do not tolerate familiarity.

Siamese cat

Suitable even for the laziest owner

This is an abbreviated list, but the cats that are easiest to care for are shorthair without any fads in appearance.

Longhair cats often molt and require careful grooming, while hairless cats freeze and sweat. Pets with short hair are an excellent choice for a busy owner.

How to choose a cat for a child

When a new pet is purchased for the child, at his request, parents should think very well and weigh the pros and cons.

You should not buy a cat in a family with a very young child, at least until he reaches the age of three, and preferably five. Such a baby is not yet able to realize that a cat is not a toy, but a living and intelligent creature that requires love and respect.

At a more conscious age, the child is able to appreciate that the cat will be both a companion in games and a living subject of care and care.

Adult family members should remember that if a child suddenly gets sick or tired of a pet, all responsibility for the cat will fall on their shoulders.

The benefits of cat participation in family life with children are obvious:

  • Pets are an excellent "antidepressant", they are able to calm, relieve irritation from a small person, help him fall asleep faster.
  • Cats teach children to be responsible and caring owners, which will certainly help in becoming a good parent in adulthood.
  • Children who grow up next to a cat are not prone to allergies and many other diseases. Pets can even extinguish some diseases, for example, migraine.

When choosing a pet for a child, it must be taken into account that the cat should be:

  • friendly
  • sociable
  • affectionate
  • active enough
  • playful:
  • not too demanding to care,
  • not aggressive, but able to fend for themselves.

Not all cat breeds will meet these requirements.

American shorthair cat

Sociable, but very independent cats. They love to be near the owner, but rarely find themselves in his arms - and they just don’t really allow themselves to be stroked. It is easy to worry about the absence of the owner if he is at work all day or often goes on business trips.

Very active, love to play. Such a cat definitely needs rattles or something like that. They keep the hunting instinct and easily catch mice.

They get along with the children, but do not allow themselves to squeeze.

Which breeds are non-aggressive

To say that some breeds are prone to aggression, and some not, is not entirely correct. In any inappropriate pet behavior, only the person is to blame.

If from a young age a kitten grows in a dysfunctional environment, a friendly creature is unlikely to grow out of it. Even if it is a benevolent Exot or an infinitely balanced Nibelung.

Nevertheless, nature imposes certain features on the character of a particular breed. The most friendly animals around the world unanimously recognized the following species of cats.

Russian blue cat

Natural breed, known in Russia since the 16th century. The owner of a short coat of silver color and bright green eyes. They are very beautiful, but all over the world they are appreciated precisely for their benevolent and complaisant character.

Another advantage of these animals is silence. Reserved behavior even during libido. Ideal for children. Playful in moderation, but completely non-aggressive. They will never offend a child; rather, they will be his nanny.

The world price for representatives of this breed starts from a thousand dollars, in Russia you can buy much cheaper - for 30 thousand rubles.

Many beautiful legends are composed of these beautiful “children of the fog”. They look like Russian blue cats with silver color and emerald big eyes, but their coat is much longer.

The main advantage of the Nibelungs is their surprisingly patient and affectionate disposition. Loyal to the owner and all household members to the core. At the same time, they will never drop their truly royal dignity.

At a young age, it’s not a problem to keep children company in noisy games; they become more sedate with age. Possessors of a quiet, almost soundless voice behave very unrestrained during the rutting season.

If the pets are not intended for breeding, it is better to be neutered in a timely manner.

Despite a good hunting instinct, they never show aggression towards people, especially children. Rather, parents will worry and worry about them no less.

There is no Nibelung in Russia, the cost of kittens in the world is very high, about 10 thousand dollars precisely because of the rarity of these pets.

Disadvantages

They require a polite, respectful treatment,

Not too affectionate to outsiders or just family members.

American shorthair cat

Sociable, but very independent cats. They love to be near the owner, but rarely find themselves in his arms - and they just don’t really allow themselves to be stroked. It is easy to worry about the absence of the owner if he is at work all day or often goes on business trips.

Very active, love to play. Such a cat definitely needs rattles or something like that. They keep the hunting instinct and easily catch mice.

Neva Masquerade Cat

This, in fact, is a Siberian cat, crossed with a Siamese, having a peculiar, very beautiful color-point color of various shades and bright blue eyes.

The calm of the Siberian is diluted with the excessive activity of the Siamese. As a result, this pet is moderately playful, very intelligent and friendly.

Ideal for children, it will never scratch or bite a child, even after playing too much. But it must be remembered that thick and long hair with voluminous undercoat requires careful weekly, and during molting and daily care.

What breed of cats to choose: type of coat

First of all, decide:

  • how much do you care about the abundance of wool on carpets, furniture and clothes,
  • how much time are you willing to devote to grooming (daily, once a week, only as a last resort).

If daily combing of wool, which can also become tangled and form tangles, is not for you, then you better pay attention to short-haired breeds. In addition, they shed less intensively (for example, from a Persian cat in hot summer you can comb the hair the size of the same cat!).

Coated cat breeds: list

The most common shorthair cat breeds are:

  • european shorthair
  • British Shorthair
  • Scottish fold (fold and straight)
  • Russian blue
  • Siamese
  • thai
  • oriental
  • abyssinian
  • burmese
  • cornish rex
  • devon rex
  • sphinx

By the way, if you think that having a naked cat, you can completely get rid of the need to care for it, then you are mistaken. Sphinxes do not need to be combed, but daily need to be wiped with a damp cloth, because otherwise they leave greasy spots on everything that they touch. The fact is that grease is released on their skin, which leaves prints on the furniture, floor and hands.

Longhair cat breeds: list

The most common long-haired cat breeds are:

  • persian
  • norwegian forest
  • Siberian
  • turkish angora
  • nibelung
  • Maine Coon
  • ragdoll
  • burmese
  • turkish van

Care for longhair cats also varies by breed. Some breeds shed less than others.

And of course, it is better for allergy sufferers to choose cats with short hair (although the reason for the allergy is usually not in the hair).

What breed of cats to choose: size

Of course, Mainkun differs from Manchkin not as strikingly as the Great Dane from the lapdog, but nevertheless, the size should be taken into account. If only because large cats need more food, and the cost of the animal will be more.

Large cats are not well suited to older people or people with disabilities: a 7-10-pound animal is difficult to carry if you need a visit to the veterinarian.

It is also worth considering if you can handle a large, strong animal if you need to cut its nails, give a pill or comb it.

What breed of cats to choose: character

If you have already decided on the external characteristics, which breed of cats to choose, and consider several breeds of a certain type, at the last stage, pay special attention to temperament.

Perhaps, when choosing a cat, character is of the utmost importance. After all, the cat will live next to you for the next 12-20 years, and you must fit together.

For example, oriental-type breeds (orientals, Thais, Siamese, etc.) are active and very talkative (are you ready for a loud meow for a variety of reasons?), The Persians are usually phlegmatic and complaisant, and the British and Scottish are often very independent and do not allow themselves familiar treatment.

Of course, each cat is individual, but the general characteristics of the breed will tell you which breed is best for you.

Active, energetic cats are often quite talkative:

  • abyssinian
  • balinese
  • cornish rex
  • oriental
  • Siamese
  • thai

Calm, affectionate cats:

  • burmese
  • bombay
  • british and scottish shorthair
  • burmese
  • Persian and Exot
  • ragdoll and ragamuffin
  • turkish van
