Which cats have the most difficult temperament: breeds with a "surprise"

Yulia LoseynkoLife
Persian and Thai cats, as well as Maine Coons, are very respectful of their privacy.

People unfamiliar with cat habits may mistake the independent nature of these wonderful creatures for a bad temper. However, in reality, you can get along with any cat if you respect its boundaries enough. However, some breeds are famous for their greater tendency to walk on their own.

OBOZREVATEL has compiled a list of such breeds. And tells you who it is better to treat with maximum respect to get a wonderful loyal friend.

Bengal cat

This breed is derived from the wild Bengal (Far Eastern) cat, so it has a corresponding temperament. Similar to miniature leopards, Bengals do not like to be denied anything and have a developed hunting instinct. So if you try to stop such an animal from jumping on the wardrobe or running around at night, you can get a good thrashing. Bengals are also very talkative. Therefore, when you get such a handsome dog, you need to weigh your options.

Abyssinian cat

A miniature creature with huge almond-shaped eyes looks so much like a tame puma for a reason. Abyssinians are famous for their independent nature. If such a cat wants to look down on you while you do something, do not try to convince it to sit in your arms. In the end, it will come to you when it is ready, because this breed is still very sociable.

British Shorthair cat

Despite its phlegmatic nature and charming cheeks, the British Shorthair cat does not like familiarity and violation of its boundaries. She will gladly keep company with her people, but only on her own terms. If you violate them, the British will take offence and simply disappear from sight. If you pester her systematically, you can wake up a real predator even in such a plush creature.

Siamese cat

What distinguishes Siamese cats from other wayward cats is their unwillingness to tolerate discomfort. The response to interference in the Siamese's affairs will be immediate. And quite tangible. Therefore, breed lovers know that it is better to stop trying after the first warning. Blue-eyed beauties know better what kind of interaction they want and when.


Representatives of this French breed do not like excessive attention. Combined with developed hunting instincts and innate physical strength, we get an animal that is very good at defending its boundaries. But in general, these cats get along well with all family members who agree to communicate on their terms.

Maine Coon

The biggest threat is the size of this breed - it is officially recognised as the largest of the domestic cats. The Maine Coon can fight back quite well. Although these cats are famous for their calm and balanced character, even their patience has its limits. Therefore, if the animal shows unwillingness to communicate, it is better to take this into account.

Persian cat

This breed is perhaps the most phlegmatic of all. And the most shy. Therefore, it will definitely refuse to communicate with strangers. And it may not be in the mood to communicate with its owners at all. The reaction to a violation of a Persian cat's privacy can be unexpectedly powerful.
