So I'm thinking about getting a cat when I move out of my parents home, probably sometime within the next year or two, and I want suggestions about what breeds to look at?
The biggest thing I want in a cat is one that is affectionate but not overly clingy. I don't really want to feel like I am taking care of a baby or something. I'd appreciate a cat that is social but also able to entertain itself? Idk, I just don't want it to be like my dog.
I also really want a cat that I can take places and buy or make toys and stuff for. I need a cat that is adaptable.
Grooming-wise I don't really have a preference.
I do tend to gravitate more towards unusual looking breeds like the Cornish Rex. I also like longhaired breeds like the Ragdoll. I do not however, like flat-nosed cats like Persians. I would also prefer a breed that is easy to find in shelters, but it doesn't really matter.
