They won't kneel themselves: cat breeds that consistently ignore humans
When we take a cat home, we always hope that it will be affectionate, happy to come into our arms and purr loudly when we pet it. As a rule, this is the case, but it often turns out that the cat prefers to be an independent creature and is reluctant to make contact. This is especially true for representatives of several breeds.
OBOZREVATEL has collected five such types of cats. Don't even try to put them on your lap.
In the recent past, the ancestor of this luxurious animal was a wild Bengal cat, which is why the breed still retains such a high level of independence. Bengals are very active, preferring outdoor games and watching from a distance. Buy such a cat a lot of toys and encourage it to play, so it will be happy with you and may come to be with you someday. It happens to them too.
This is a calm, full of self-esteem creature. Scots are balanced, and intelligent, and simply love complex toys that challenge their intelligence. They are very attached to people, give their hearts to their owners, and can even become depressed after a long separation. But to feel close to their human, the Scottish Fold needs a certain distance.
The patience of fluffy giants has no limits. The Maine Coon can be a wonderful family cat because it can calmly tolerate even active children's pranks. But this will be a manifestation of patience, not affection. Of its own free will, a big cat would rather lie down next to you and hypnotize you with its expressive gaze than try to lie down on your lap. However, they have nothing against stroking their luxurious coat.
A feature of the breed is its tendency to vocalize. There are many sounds in the British repertoire, including very loud ones. Therefore, get ready for the fact that when you try to pick up a plush cat, it will yell at you. When you hear such a warning, immediately release the animal. It will quickly calm down and take its favorite place - somewhere nearby, where you can watch what people are doing.
Cats of this breed are not just calm - they can be called the most phlegmatic of all domestic purrs. They are quite patient with procedures for caring for their fur, such as combing and even bathing. But they will not go into your arms of their own free will. Persians are shy, so they will keep a certain distance even from their owner, not to mention strangers. These are cats that are loved with their eyes.
