Best Cat Breeds for The Woodlands Apartment Living

Russian Blue Cat Walking Around the Legs of Their OwnerUsually, when it comes to pets, cats are great for a Woodlands apartment life. These pets are quiet and clean. They also love curling up with their humans. But there are cat breeds that are more suitable for apartment life than others. The typical breeds that are the best fit are the social, lower-energy animals that are also good at bonding with their people. Here are seven breeds that are among the best ones for apartment living.

British Shorthair

These short-haired favorites of apartment-dwellers are fairly independent yet affectionate cats. British Shorthairs do love to play, but they are usually low-key and like to entertain themselves. Because they easily adapt to people and need very little grooming, they make excellent apartment pets.


If you like quiet & fluffy pets, then the Persian might be the cat for you. They are beautiful and gentle and prefer long naps to active play. Persians are about as mellow as it gets. These cats do well in apartments because they can do well with a small roaming space.

Scottish Fold

Scottish Folds are greatly suited to apartment life because they are affectionate but not that clingy. They are usually relaxed and rarely get excitable or startled. Intelligent and adaptable, Scottish Folds like a stable routine and lots of affection from their owners.


Big, beautiful, and sociable, Ragdolls are often on the list of popular cat breeds. Similar to Persians, they have fluffy coats that need extra grooming. Their energy level also tends to be higher compared to their fluffier cousins. Ragdolls like people and love to play and snuggle with them.

Russian Blue

A person with allergy issues 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 other reasons for you to pick a Russian Blue as an apartment pet. They are curious, playful, and very loyal to their favorite person.

American Shorthair

American Shorthairs make for a great family cat! They are very low-maintenance cats and they love lots of 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. Usually having long lives, these cats are great for people who want to have many years of companionship with their pets.


Another breed with a long, silky coat, Birmans are the friendliest cats around. Playful Birmans make great apartment pets because they also like to cuddle with their humans. Birmans also love napping and grooming themselves. They do need to make a bit of effort to keep all that hair looking great.
