The 7 Most Friendly Cat Breeds

The Most Friendliest & Affectionate Cat Breeds

The common misconception about cats is that they’re fiercely independent, aloof and a bit anti-social, especially when compared to dogs. But just because cats aren’t as predictable and obvious about loving people as dogs are, it doesn’t mean that cats don’t want all your love, attention and cuddles. There are certain breeds of cat in particular that love human company and affection.

These cats are well-known for loving nothing more than following you round the house, using your laptop as the perfect bed whenever you’re trying to type, and curling up with you at bedtime. This friendliness is perfect if you want an affectionate and loving companion.


This extroverted cat loves being involved everything going on throughout the house, and is incredibly vocal, often having their own input into everything going on.

Whilst some people may be put off by the sphynx’s hairless appearance, this cat is incredibly sweet and affectionate to both her family and strangers.

The ragdoll is a big, fluffy feline bred to be the ultimate lap cat.
