Less active households are ideal for calm cats. Quiet, independent children will appreciate the mellow demeanor of quiet felines. With that in mind, calm cats would not be suitable for families with active, rambunctious kids.
Affectionate, loyal cats are good family companions. Although quiet, low-energy cats still can be friendly and somewhat playful. You’ll likely opt for a cat that can adapt to a variety of situations and environments.
Popular picks for calm cat breeds include the Birman, British Shorthair, Exotic Shorthair, Japanese Bobtail, Persian, Ragamuffin, Ragdoll, and Selkirk Rex.
