Top 13 Naturally Pet-Friendly Cat Breeds

Most cats are friendly with their favorite humans, but not all of them get along with other family pets, especially dogs. If you want to have a multi-species household, pet friendliness may be something you’re looking for in a new cat.

Some breeds are naturally more pet friendly than others. That’s why we’ve come up with a list of the most naturally pet-friendly cat breeds.

However, just because a cat isn’t mentioned below doesn’t mean they won’t be friendly toward other pets. Training and socialization go a long way for any pet.

With that in mind, here are 13 cats in alphabetical order that have the the highest score — five stars — when it comes to being naturally “pet friendly” according to breed characteristics found our CatTime Cat Breed Center.

Remember, you can find cats of just about any breed from your local rescue or shelter. Check out CatTime’s adoption page that lets you search for adoptable cats by breed and zip code. Whenever possible, adopt! Don’t shop!
