Best Cat Breeds for Prairieville Apartment Living

Russian Blue Cat Walking Around the Legs of Their OwnerGenerally, when we talk about pets, cats are one of those that are suited to Prairieville apartment life. They are often quiet, clean, and love cuddling with their favorite human. However, some cat breeds are more suited to apartment life than others. The typical breeds that are the best fit are the social, lower-energy animals that are also good at bonding with their people. Here are seven breeds that are among the best ones for apartment living.

British Shorthair

This independent and affectionate short-haired cat is among the favorites for apartment dwellers. British Shorthairs love to play, but they tend to be low-key after playtime and can usually entertain themselves. Needing only very little grooming and being easily adaptable, they make very good apartment pets.


If you like quiet & fluffy pets, then the Persian might be the cat for you. These cats prefer a long nap to rough play. They are also very beautiful and gentle. Persians are about as mellow as it gets. They do well in apartments with a tiny area to move around in.

Scottish Fold

Scottish Folds suit apartment life because they are affectionate without being too clingy. They rarely become excitable or startled and are usually very relaxed. Intelligent and adaptable, Scottish Folds like a stable routine and lots of affection from their owners.


Ragdolls belong to the big, beautiful, and sociable cat breeds. Like Persians, their fluffy coats may need extra grooming. Their energy level also tends to be higher compared to their fluffier cousins. Ragdolls are playful and love to snuggle with you as long as you let them.

Russian Blue

If you are prone to allergies, the Russian Blue might be for you. These short-haired cats have fur that is less likely to trigger an allergy attack.There are also a number of reasons to adopt a Russian Blue as an apartment buddy. They are curious, playful, and very loyal to their favorite person.

American Shorthair

American Shorthairs make for a great family cat! These cats are low-maintenance and love naps. They are good with people of all ages as well as with other pets. American Shorthairs are happy with a perch by a window and your awesome back-scratching skills. Usually having long lives, these cats are great for people who want to have many years of companionship with their pets.


Another breed with a long, silky coat, Birmans are the friendliest cats around. Birmans, although often hard to find, make very good apartment pets because they delight in playing and cuddling with their favorite persons. Birmans also enjoys napping and they like grooming themselves. Having that much hair does take a bit more effort to look its best.
