To find the perfect mustachioed companion, you need to know how to choose the right cat. If you live in an apartment, and not in a private house, pay attention to the breeds, whose representatives do not need compulsory walks. The temperament of the animal is also important. Felinologists argue that it is better to give preference to not very active, friendly and calm pets. We tell among which breeds such individuals are more common.
Saturated blue eyes and a soft coat of color-point color make Siamese cats incredibly attractive. But they are good not only externally. A keen mind and affectionate nature allow them to become ideal companions for a single person. And there is not much wool from them, since a beautiful fur coat has almost no undercoat.
Chartreuse, or Cartesian cat
The cat of the Chartreuse breed looks like a Briton. This pet is characterized by a calm character, it does not run around the apartment headlong, very smart and smart, but fulfills the request of a person only when he wants it. At the same time, the Cartesian cat loves gentle stroking and communication with people.
If you furnished the apartment with velor furniture, from which it is very difficult to remove wool, then it is worth taking a closer look at the bald animals. Now sphinxes of all varieties are popular (Don, Canadian, Peterbald). These cats are convenient for keeping in a small dwelling not only due to their lack of molting. Sphinxes are very smart and affectionate, get along well with other tetrapods and absolutely do not need a walk.
The Russian blue cat quickly gained wide popularity due to its incredibly beautiful appearance. His green eyes and bluish-gray coat are recognizable all over the world. This four-legged friend loves to play, but he does it carefully, without sudden movements. Often not averse to walking along the street, but this is not a prerequisite in its content. The coat of the Russian blue beauty is very thick, but if you do not forget to comb it during molting, then there will be no trouble.
The Scots are very popular today. Soft and short hair, round eyes and curving ears make them unique. Scottish fold cats are unobtrusive at home, do not require much attention, feel good at home alone when the owners are at work, and do not show aggression to people.
This round ball of wool looks very funny. Exotics rarely give voice, so they don’t cause inconvenience to neighbors, they like to play with children, practically do not release their claws and most of the time they prefer to lie on the couch or on their lap. Exotic Shorthair cat requires care for the fur coat during molting. It is enough to comb it with a puncher once a week.
From English, the name of the breed translates as “rag doll”, but this does not mean that the furry pet will allow children to consider themselves a toy. Ragdolls are really non-aggressive, friendly to all people, ready to nap all day on the lap of the owner, so they will make an excellent company for older people or couch potatoes. The coat of the pet must be combed periodically, but it is unlikely that it will be possible to bathe the fluffy: the ragdoll is afraid of water.
Manx cats rarely exceed 5 kg in weight. They are both short-haired and half-long-haired - this variety is called kimri. It is noteworthy that among the Manks, tailless individuals are often found, and in some representatives the tail is simply shorter than usual. This is a consequence of a natural gene mutation. Menks are characterized by a calm disposition, easily tolerate loneliness and do not need painstaking care.
Many other breeds are suitable for living in an apartment. The only exceptions are hybrids with wild cats, since they are large (their body weight reaches 20 kg), they need extensive space and daily walks. So when choosing a suitable four-legged friend, first of all be guided by the voice of the heart.
