10 Abyssinian 

Although they are not lap cats, Abyssinians are people-loving and are very loyal to their pet parents. Plus, they’re also among the most intelligent cats! 

9 Scottish Fold 

This breed of cat is well-known for its folded ear, giving it a pixie-like look. Scottish Folds are quiet but love a good companionship. 

8 Sphynx 

Sphynx are popular and hairless cats that are perfect for cat-lovers with cat allergies. Their silly antics yet loveable nature make them a fun companion for both humans, dogs, and other cat breeds. 

7 Devon Rex 

A playful and fun-loving breed, the Devon Rex is described as a cross between a cat, a dog, and a monkey. They love learning and doing tricks, as well as playing games that dogs usually enjoy. 

6 American Shorthair 

American Shorthairs make a great family cat. They’re generally a healthy breed and pretty low maintenance. A basic cat care routine, along with lots of love and affection, can make ASHs live happily for up to 15 years or more. 

5 Maine Coon Cat 

Often described as very dog-like, Maine Coons are large-breed cats that will give you hours of playful fun. They are also known for their unusual love for water. 

4 Persian 

Persians are a breed of cat with elegantly long and thick fur, cute and round face, and a short muzzle. If you want to live with a sweet, gentle, and tame cat, Persians might be an ideal companion for you. 

3 British Shorthair 

Among the oldest breed of English cats, the British Shorthair is a medium to large cat breed that is affectionate and is quick to become attached to their pet parents. They also get along well with dogs, rabbits, and birds. 

2 Exotic 

An Exotic was bred to look like a Persian but with shorter and easier to manage coat. They’re perfect for Persian cat lovers who do not have the time to groom their cat daily. Exotics have a round and soft face which seems to resemble a teddy bear. 

1 Ragdoll 

Its captivating blue eyes, laid-back nature, and beautifully long coat are among the many attractive features of Ragdolls, the most popular breed in the US. A friendly and well-behaved cat, Ragdolls love being cuddled and are perfect furry companions for affectionate families.
