    Pink Lab Who knew that cat breeds are similar to dog breeds in that it *does* matter which one you choose! I think the only cat breed that I would avoid is one where the felines are completely oblivious to my existence.

    Fred Stone I've never heard of a couple of those breeds. I'm surprised to not see the Maine Coon on the list. This is one of the sweetest family cat breeds there is. They are even-tempered and tolerant, perfect for families with children.
