The Most Loyal Cat Breeds

Dogs are believed to be the most loyal animals. However, many cat owners may disagree with this. Dogs and cats differ in character and the way they show their attachment to their owners, but this doesn’t mean that cats aren’t loyal to their humans.

With 5-Minute Crafts, you’ll learn what cat breeds are most loyal.


Siamese cats are known for their boisterous personalities, sociability, and “talkativeness.” And they are also quite fond of humans. However, keep in mind that these animals don’t like to stay alone at home. To feel happy, they need a companion, whether it be a person or another cat.

Siamese cats think of themselves as the masters of the house. But they don’t forget about their owners, viewing them as second-most important. They tend to bond with just one family member and are loyal only to them.


The Sphynx is considered one of the most undemanding and friendly cat breeds. These cats are talkative, playful, and love to be in the spotlight.

They are affectionate and loving toward their own family. They are distinguished not only by their unusual looks but also by their loyalty.


The list of the most loyal breeds includes Persian cats too. However, there is a weird opinion about the Persian cat: it is loyal because it’s selfish. The fact is that these cats give all their love to a person simply because they want their attention. It’s simple — the more your pet loves you, the more time you’ll spend with it.

You will often find this cat patiently waiting for you to sit down so that it can comfortably sit on your lap and get its daily dose of affection.


Burmese cats are sweet, beautiful, and loyal. They are believed to be one of the most affectionate breeds. If you give it too little attention, the Burmese will take care of it if you choose otherwise. Your cat will sit on your shoulder while you’re browsing the Internet or even block the view of your TV so that you will finally notice it.

These cats are not always fond of strangers, but they are extremely loyal to their family members. They make charming and very loyal pets.


The Abyssinians are also among the most loyal cats. This breed is very intelligent and friendly, as well as curious and playful.

The Abyssinian cat always tries to be close to its owner. It will join you in the kitchen while you’re cooking, climb into your arms while you’re working at the computer, and snuggle next to you while you’re watching a movie. Abyssinian cats will always think of you as their best friend.

Exotic Shorthair

The Exotic Shorthair is a mix between the Persian and American Shorthair breeds. These cats are very sweet, playful, and, of course, loyal. The Exotic Shorthair is on the list of the most affectionate representatives of the cat family.

This breed is perfect for those who are looking for a loyal companion.

Maine Coon

Maine Coon cats can get very attached and always want to be where their owners are. These cats will always be at their owners’ heels. If you don’t have time to pet it, the cat will be happy to just watch you.

Maine Coon cats are called “gentle giants” for a reason, as they treat even strangers as friends. They are also affectionate with children and other pets.

Russian Blue

The Russian Blue is among the top 3 most loyal breeds. These cats have a reputation for being gentle, quiet, and even a little shy. But, despite this, they love to play, jump, and climb, like other cats.

These cats like to find high places and watch people from there. They don’t pay attention to outsiders and may not even show themselves to guests. However, family members, especially their favorite humans, are treated quite differently.

The Russian Blue will always be loyal to you. These cats love to follow their owners everywhere and even ride on their shoulders. They are very sensitive and don’t like to be ignored. They might even get offended if they don’t get enough attention.


Ragdoll cats are adorable and fluffy. This breed is recognized as one of the friendliest.

These animals love spending time with their owner more than anything. The Ragdoll cat will follow you around, even if you are busy and don’t pay attention to it. Many owners note that these cats have a dog-like loyal and obedient character.

Ragdoll cats are very affectionate, loving, loyal animals.

Egyptian Mau

The Egyptian Mau is believed to be the most loyal breed. These cats are playful and very friendly. They are ideal for families with children, especially those of school age. In addition, representatives of this breed are smart enough to stay away from very young babies.

They are not only beautiful but also fearless cats that are not even afraid of dogs. But if a dog doesn’t pose a threat, this cat will gladly make friends with it.

It’s worth mentioning that this is just general information. Despite the breed, each cat has its own unique character. If your pet is not on this list, there’s no need to get upset. It’s still your most loyal pet.
