Which breed of cat to choose if you live surrounded by several people, children, or even other animals? Let’s take a look at the felines known to be family cats.
Some cats adapt better to family life than others. Concretely, these felines are endowed with character traits that allow them to easily find their place within the small clan, especially if it includes children.
These animals are also able to adapt to most lifestyles: in an apartment or in a house with a garden, in town or in the country … They are sociable and withstand the agitation associated with more or less large families quite well.
In addition, they have no difficulty sharing their territory with other cats and animals of other species, such as dogs.
A cat adapted to family life is also a companion whose education is not particularly complex and whose maintenance is not extensive. In this way, everyone in the household can participate in these 2 aspects, as far as possible.
Finally, the big plus in some so-called family cats is their ” hypoallergenic ” character. They shed little hair, which is a significant advantage for people who are sensitive to it.
