Siamese/Balinese are dog like too
Mica plays fetch and it more dog than cat. The meowing does improve with age but they will always be more vocal than most cats. It really comes down to whether you like that or not, for me holding conversations with Meeky is one of the nicests things in life. She is also so very loyal to us she is staying with my MIL right now who she gets a ong with(while we move to a new house) but when we visit you can tell who her parents are! Again some people find that exhausting so it really does depend.
I would recommend going to a cat show and seeing all the different breeds there are. You can take the breeders cards of the ones you find interesting and read all you can about them. Then narrow it down to two and call the breeders then. Visit them and see which breed you fall in love with.
Try the Scottish Cat Club for info:http://www.scottishcatclub.co.uk/Home.htm
They have a bunch of Aby breeders.
One more thing its also really nice for you to visit the kitten you decide on several times before buying. That way you can bond with the kitten and get to know them.
