Finding the perfect (purrfect) cat
Choosing the perfect cat for you
Many Siamese, for example, can be strong-willed and vocal, but there’s no guarantee that every Siamese will be that way. Some cats can be calm and sweet one second and then literally jumping off of the walls the next. Some kitties zoom around the room suddenly and then are as still as a placid lake the next second.
This poses some important questions
- What type of personality are you looking for?
- Do you want a kitten or an adult?
- Would you consider adopting?

- Do you want to brush your cat's long hair or do you want a cat that takes care of itself mostly?
A comb and brush are essential to at least have on hand for a long hair cat. Some cats have minimal dander and squeaky clean skin while others have flaky skin and an oily coat.
If you have allergies, a cat with a short and clean coat may best. Cats typically require less care for their coats and skin than a dog.
Weekly brushing and inspection of your cat's skin will reduce problems. If your cat is not comfortable while you groom it, a local pet groomer may be able to help coach you or groom your cat.

Petfinder has a cool resource that you may like. It will assist but not certainly define what breed of cat has the right personality for you! Remember, all cats have very unique personalities!
