When you decide to get a new cat, you will have to do quite some thinking before you bring one home.

People have previously thought that they can just get any feline they see and that all of them will behave the same, but this is certainly not the case.

Different cat breeds have different personalities that you should be aware of.

Things are the same as with dogs here and I am sure that you would never just randomly pick out a dog to bring home without first doing some research on them and checking out if you two would be a good fit.

So, the bottom line is that there are a lot of things to consider when choosing a cat and that the choosing process shouldn’t be any different than the actual process of choosing a dog.

Of course, these two animals are entirely different, but the point is that they differ from one another as well and it all depends on the breed that you will choose.

If you are ready to start digging a bit deeper and learn as much as you can about various felines before deciding which one to take home, then you might want to begin with learning about medium cat breeds that could be the perfect companions for you.

Medium-sized cats are certainly extremely popular nowadays and people usually choose them over those extremely large or extremely small breeds.

If you are thinking of choosing one of those as well, then it would be a good idea for you to first get properly acquainted with the specific breeds, with the aim of figuring out which one could fit in with your particular lifestyle.

So, if you are ready to get acquainted with those various breeds, keep on reading because I’ll provide you with a list of the most popular medium-sized cats.


1. Ragdoll

I am pretty sure that you are not surprised to see the Ragdoll as the first cat on our list of the most popular medium sized ones. There is also no doubt in my mind that you have heard of this breed already.

After all, it is one of the most popular felines in general and I would be quite surprised to find out that you haven’t heard about it yet. If you’re now wondering why it is that these are so popular, let me tell you a bit more about that.

This popularity certainly has a lot to do with the beauty of this feline, although that beauty is not the only reason why they are so loved. Their deep blue eyes and semi-long cream and brown fur is bound to win everyone’s heart over.

Yet, it is their intelligence, coupled with their curious nature and their affectionate personality, that will seal the deal and turn you into a huge cat lover even if you weren’t one before.

2. Scottish Fold

The Scottish Fold is a great choice for everyone who loves cuddling with their cat without engaging in too much activity.

These felines are a bit on the lazy side and their favorite activity includes lying around in the sun and cuddling with their owner.

The thing that makes them stand out from the crowd is their angry looking face which can be quite amusing. Yet, don’t let the appearance fool you, as these cats are certainly not angry or aggressive. Quite on the contrary, they are loving and affectionate.

3. Sphynx

If you prefer not to have hair all over your home, then you should think about getting the Sphynx. Sure, there are some hairy cats out there that don’t shed a lot and that won’t give you any hair troubles, but if you want to play it safe, then you should get a feline that has no hair at all.

You might find their appearance a bit weird in the beginning, but I am sure that you will quickly get used to this exotic breed. Unlike the previous one, this cat is highly active.

It enjoys climbing and it will certainly demand your attention when performing the “tricks” that they have learned.

4. Siamese

The hypoallergenic Siamese cat is perfect for people who are worried about allergies, as you might have concluded on your own.

Even though they are considered medium-sized, they can sometimes be quite tall, thanks to their long legs and their slim necks. This breed is highly sociable and it will get along well with just about anyone.

If you decide to get it, you should be ready to spend a few hours a day playing with it, because it will certainly want your attention. Go here to learn a few interesting facts on this breed.

The Russian Blue feline is also hypoallergenic. Furthermore, it is highly intelligent and, of course, it is extremely beautiful.

It’s no wonder that it has found its place on the list of the most popular medium-sized cats since people usually fall in love with their gracious and elegant appearance the moment they see this animal.

The fact that they are always alert and aware of their surroundings makes them similar to dogs at some points.

6. American Shorthair
