All of my cats have different personalities as some are outgoing and some prefer to be by themselves. Some of my cats love to be held and petted and others will let you hold them for just a little while and then they want down. Some of my cats will give you a love nip and others will draw your blood.
I have had many male and female cats over the years. My male cats will tolerate more and love to be held and made a fuss over for a long period of time. My female cats are less tolerant and seem to have a moody personality. The female cats want to held on their terms only.
My cat Kohl is very friendly and outgoing. Garfunkel is shy and more reserved. Conrad is a one person cat. Cali, Faith and Russ love to press and rub against your legs or hand. Addi is a one person cat and her kittens, Mr. Gray, Hilford, and Sherlock take after their Mother. Maggie is friendly and her sister is a one person cat. Peter is very shy and very reserved. Nicole wants to be left alone and she likes to bite a persons hand.
Cats tend to have the same personalities that their parents had. I once had a purebred Siamese house cat that was extremely moody. She would be fine one minute and the next minute she would bite you without much warning. Siamese cats have their own mind set and we cannot change it.
Most of my cats I have now are domestic shorthair, Siamese, Persian and Himalayan which makes for a more even temperament. I have had purebred Himalayan cats and Maine Coon cats. The Himalayan’s are very quiet with a wonderful personality. I like the Maine Coon cats they are long haired and nice and have a shrill meow.
When picking out a new cat look at its parents personalities and the breed traits of the cat you are considering and then you and your new cat will both be happy for many years to come.
