Best Cat Breeds for Muskegon Apartment Living

Russian Blue Cat Walking Around the Legs of Their OwnerGenerally, when we talk about pets, cats are one of those that are suited to Muskegon apartment life. They are often quiet, clean, and love cuddling with their favorite human. However, there really are cat breeds that are more suited to apartment living than others. These are usually the social, lower-energy breeds that are good at bonding with people. We list down seven breeds that we believe will thrive best in apartment-life.

British Shorthair

This independent and affectionate short-haired cat is among the favorites for apartment dwellers. Although they are usually low-key and can entertain themselves, British Shorthairs also love to play. Needing only very little grooming and being easily adaptable, they make very good apartment pets.


If quiet & fluffy cats are your thing, you can’t go wrong with a Persian. Beautiful and gentle, they prefer a long nap over rough play. Persians are about as mellow as it gets. They do well in apartments because they can thrive in small spaces.

Scottish Fold

The affectionate, yet not clingy, Scottish Fold is great for apartment life. They are typically relaxed and are less likely to become 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. Similar to Persians, they have fluffy coats that need extra grooming. However, they tend to be higher on the energy scale than their fluffy cousins. Ragdolls absolutely love to play and snuggle with you.

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 a number of reasons to adopt a Russian Blue as an apartment buddy. They are curious, playful, and very loyal to their favorite person.

American Shorthair

American Shorthairs make for a great family cat! These cats are low-maintenance and love naps. They are good with people of all ages as well as with other pets. All an American Shorthair needs is a perch by a window and your best back-scratching skills. They live long lives so they are great for those who want a furry companion for years.


Another breed with a long, silky coat, Birmans are the friendliest cats around. Birmans, although often hard to find, make very good apartment pets because they delight in playing and cuddling with their favorite persons. When they are not playing, you can find them either napping or grooming themselves. Having that much hair does take a bit more effort to look its best.
