7 Most Affectionate Cat BreedsBy Pet360 | Pets – 4 hours ago
If your cat is anything like mine, well let's just say she's not the
cuddliest animal of the bunch. Don't get me wrong - when she's in the
mood she can hang around for a good scratch for quite some time, but
it's definitely got to be on her own terms.
As it turns out, Penny's reluctance towards affection isn't all that
surprising - her breed just isn't, well, bred for it. There are,
however, certain cat breeds that are known for their affectionate,
loving demeanors. We contacted the Cat Fanciers Association to find out
what they are.

The gentle Persian is known for its sweet, affectionate personality.
They easily adapt to all kinds of households, and their love of play
makes them a great addition to homes with children.
Often compared in demeanor to Persians, Exotics are known for their
quiet, endearing nature, an ideal breed for anyone looking to add an
affectionate, peaceful and loyal companion to their home.
Sweet, amiable and playful are a few of the adjectives often used to
describe the American Shorthair. Their longevity, good health and
personality make them a great family pet.
While it's true that Ragdolls are often considered laidback, this breed
also tends to be more interested in their humans than some other breeds.
Don't be surprised if your Ragdoll makes a habit of greeting you at the
door, following you from room to room or sleeping with you every night.
Playful and intelligent, the Manx is also known to be highly devoted to
their families. They are often called "dog-like" in their family
loyalty and their love of play, and they tend to get along splendidly
with both humans and other family pets alike.
A RagaMuffin's glorious coat and big eyes will draw you in, making you
want to pet them for hours on end - so it's a good thing that they love
attention. RagaMuffins develop extremely strong bonds with their
families, and their calm and patient demeanor makes them the perfect
companions for children and other pets
Easygoing, calm and very affectionate, the British Shorthair is also
known for becoming very attached to their people. They get along well
with people, but aren't in love with the idea of being held or carried.
