Best Cat Breeds for Renton Apartment Living

Russian Blue Cat Walking Around the Legs of Their OwnerWhen looking for pets that are more suited to Renton apartment life, you can’t go wrong with cats. Cats are quiet and clean. They enjoy curling up next to their humans. There are, however, some cat breeds that suit apartment living more than others. These breeds are most often the more social, lower-energy ones that comfortably bond with their people. These seven breeds rank among those that are best suited for apartment life.

British Shorthair

This short-haired cat is a favorite because they are independent but still affectionate. While British Shorthairs enjoy playing, after they play, they are low-key and are good at entertaining themselves. They make very good apartment pets because they need minimal grooming and can easily adapt to their owner’s lifestyle.


Persian cats are quiet and fluffy! Favoring long naps to rowdy play, these cats are also beautiful & gentle. Persians are about as mellow as it gets. They also do well in apartments with little room.

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.


Ragdolls are one of the most popular cat breeds among those who like big, beautiful, and sociable furry friends. They have fluffy coats like the Persians, similarly, they also need extra grooming. They also tend to have a bit more energy than Persians. Ragdolls love their humans and will enjoy playing and snuggling 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. In addition to that, there are also other reasons to adopt a Russian Blue for an apartment pet. They are curious, playful, and very loyal to their favorite person.

American Shorthair

The American Shorthair is a great family cat. These low-maintenance cats definitely love their naps. They also get along well with people of all ages and other pets. All an American Shorthair needs is a perch by a window and your best back-scratching skills. They also live long lives so they are great if you are looking forward to enjoying many years with your pet.


Another breed with a long, silky coat, Birmans are the friendliest cats around. Birmans are harder to find but they make great apartment pets because they love playing and cuddling with their favorite people. Birmans also like napping and grooming themselves when they are not playing. Their long hair looks its best after a bit of work.
