Best Cat Breeds for Windermere Apartment Living

Russian Blue Cat Walking Around the Legs of Their OwnerCats make great Windermere apartment pets. These pets are quiet and clean. They also love curling up with their humans. There are, however, some cat breeds that suit apartment living more than others. Typically, these are the more social, lower-energy ones that are also very good at bonding with people. In this list are seven breeds that have been observed to be suited to apartment life.

British Shorthair

Apartment-dwellers like this short-haired cat because they are independent yet affectionate. British Shorthairs love to play but are really low-key and are very capable of entertaining themselves. They make very good apartment pets because they need minimal grooming and can easily adapt to their owner’s lifestyle.


The Persian is a quiet, fluffy cat you might like. Favoring long naps to rowdy play, these cats are also beautiful & gentle. Persians are as mellow as it gets. They do well in apartments because they don’t need a big roaming space.

Scottish Fold

Scottish Folds are perfect for apartment life because, even when they are not clingy, they are still very affectionate. These cats are also usually relaxed and rarely become excitable or startled. Intelligent and adaptable, Scottish Folds like a stable routine and lots of affection from their owners.


As one of the popular cat breeds, Ragdolls are big, beautiful, and sociable pets. Like their cousin, the Persians, they also have fluffy coats that need extra grooming. They have more energy than their fluffier cousins, though. Ragdolls like people and love to play and snuggle with them.

Russian Blue

People who are prone to allergies might want to consider getting a Russian Blue. These short-haired cats have fur that is less likely to trigger an allergy attack. There are also other reasons to pick a Russian Blue as an apartment companion. They are curious, playful, and very loyal to their favorite person.

American Shorthair

If you are on the hunt for a great family cat, the American Shorthair could be the cat for you. They are low-maintenance cats who love their naps. They are great with people of all ages as well as with other petsAll an American Shorthair needs is a perch by a window and your best back-scratching skills. They make great long-term companions as they tend to live long lives.


Another breed with a long, silky coat, Birmans are the friendliest cats around. Thriving on play and cuddles, Birmans make great apartment pets. Birmans usually just nap & groom themselves. Their long hair looks its best after a bit of work.
