1). Sphynx

1). Sphynx

The sphynx sports a suede-like coat which is its most unmistakable feature, yet it’s also curious, smart and somewhat of a clown who demands attention for their antics. In fact, they love attention so much that you may want to consider getting another fellow Sphynx to keep your current one company!

2). Russian Blue

The Russian Blue is quiet, intelligent and easy to love — all traits that cat lovers adore greatly. Although they’re less demanding than many other felines, the Russian Blue is delightfully affectionate toward family members.

3). Manx

3). Manx

Best known for not having a tail, the smart Manx has a gentle, playful disposition. In other words, they’re happy to play fetch or carry on a conversation with their cute and special cat voice. Some Manx cats will lavish all of their affection on a single member of the family, while others like to spread the love.

4). Bengal

4). Bengal

Athletic, intelligent, active and independent. These are just some of the words commonly used to describe the Bengal! It’s not as cuddly as many of the other cats on our list, but it still demands attention, even to go for walks on a leash with their owners!

5). Persian

5). Persian

The beautiful Persian has always been a classic favorite for many and there’s a good reason why! Persians are gentle, quiet and expressive. Plus, they have such unique and cute faces! Their lush coat requires a good deal of grooming, but owners are quick to point out that it’s a worthy sacrifice.
