Best Cat Breeds for Palm harbor Apartment Living

Russian Blue Cat Walking Around the Legs of Their OwnerCats are generally the pets that are better suited to Palm Harbor apartment life. Most cats are quiet, clean, and easily satisfied by just curling up with their humans. But there are cat breeds that are more suitable for apartment life than others. You should keep an eye out for breeds that are typically social, have lower energy levels, and are comfortable with people. These seven breeds rank among those that are best suited for apartment life.

British Shorthair

Short-haired, independent, and affectionate. What more would you look for in an apartment-friendly cat? Although they are usually low-key and can entertain themselves, British Shorthairs also love to play. Since they need very little grooming and they readily adapt to their owner’s lifestyle, they make excellent apartment pets.


If quiet & fluffy cats are your thing, you can’t go wrong with a Persian. They are beautiful and gentle and prefer long naps to active play. Persians are about as mellow as it gets. These cats do well in apartments because they can do well with a small roaming space.

Scottish Fold

The affectionate, yet not clingy, Scottish Fold is great for apartment life. They are usually relaxed and rarely get excitable or startled. Intelligent and adaptable, Scottish Folds like a stable routine and lots of affection from their owners.


If you are looking for big, beautiful, and sociable cat breeds, you might like the Ragdoll. They have fluffy coats like the Persians, similarly, they also need extra grooming. However, they tend to be higher on the energy scale than their fluffy cousins. Ragdolls love their people and are willing to play and snuggle with you for 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 other reasons for you to pick a Russian Blue as an apartment pet. They are curious, playful, and very loyal to their favorite person.

American Shorthair

You won’t go wrong with picking an American Shorthair as a great family cat. These cats are very low-maintenance and love to take 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 make wonderful apartment pets because they enjoy playing and cuddling. When they are not playing, you can find them either napping or grooming themselves. Having all that hair does need a lot of work.
