Best Cat Breeds for Morrisville Apartment Living

Russian Blue Cat Walking Around the Legs of Their OwnerCats make great Morrisville apartment pets. Most cats are quiet, clean, and easily satisfied by just curling up with their humans. However, there really are cat breeds that are more suited to apartment living than others. You should keep an eye out for breeds that are typically social, have lower energy levels, and are comfortable with people. Here are seven breeds ranked among the best suited for apartment life.

British Shorthair

This independent and affectionate short-haired cat is among the favorites for apartment dwellers. British Shorthairs love to play but are low-key and are very capable of entertaining themselves. Needing only very little grooming and being easily adaptable, they make very good apartment pets.


The Persian is a quiet, fluffy cat you might like. These cats prefer a long nap to rough play. They are also very beautiful and gentle. Persians are as mellow as it gets. They do well in apartments with a tiny area to move around in.

Scottish Fold

With a good combination of affection & clinginess, the Scottish Folds are an excellent choice for apartment life. 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. However, they tend to be higher on the energy scale than their fluffy cousins. Ragdolls are playful and love to snuggle with you as long as you let them.

Russian Blue

A person with allergies might want to opt to adopt a Russian Blue. These short-haired cats have fur that is less likely to trigger an allergy attack. There are also a number of reasons to choose Russian Blue as your apartment pet. They are curious, playful, and very loyal to their favorite person.

American Shorthair

If you’re searching for a great family cat, you can’t go wrong with an American Shorthair. They are low-maintenance cats who love their naps. They easily get along with other pets and people of all ages. All an American Shorthair needs is a perch by a window and your best back-scratching skills. If you want to enjoy a lot of years with your furry companion, these cats with long lives will be the best fit for you.


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 usually just nap & groom themselves. Having that much hair does take a bit more effort to look its best.
