If your cat isn’t on the list, it doesn’t mean that she isn’t family-friendly. Most cats, if raised in a loving environment, are going to be family-friendly.

If you’re thinking about getting a faimily-friendly cat please consider reaching out to local rescue and adoption agencies. You can also use sites like PetFinder or our CatTime cat adoption center.

Do you have a cat that’s family friendly? Tell us about her in the Comments section!

These lists are created in hopes of encouraging potential adopters to consider a range of breeds and breed mixes when adopting. Our goal is to generate awareness of the many types of pet-friendly cats, low-shed cats, and others, and to encourage people to look beyond the types they’ve always known. Each cat is an individual and should be evaluated as such.
