Hi, I thought I would post this question on this forumn, as you folks are probably familiar with the widest variety of cats. I had posted a question in one of the other areas here about my British shorthairs personality...how he doesn't like to be picked up etc. It got me wondering...what breeds are very affectioniate? Which breeds are noted for wanting to be petted, cuddled, picked up and in general handled a lot? My Duncan (BSH)...is very friendly and dog-like...but, does not like being handled and picked up. Not a lap cat. I understand that this is what his breed is like. And...I have no desire to change Duncan...he has way too many cool characteristics to ever want to change him. At some point in the distant future, when I get another cat, I do want one that would be more cuddly. One that I could have sitting on my lap. One that doesn't mind being "messed with"...lol Could you folks give me some ideas of breeds that are especially sweet and friendly? And also...on the same note, could you give me an idea of which breeds are not particularly cuddly, etc.? Thanks a lot! Cindy W.
