Every cat is a special being in itself!
They all have quirks that make them unique and adorable, but like us, cats fall into different personality types.
According to a study with around 200 cat parents, Dr. Lauren Finka from the University of Lincoln tells us that cats generally fit into one of 5 major personality types.
Dr. Finka interviewed the cat parents to get an idea of the personality of their cat friends. Her research revealed the five personality types as well as thoughts about the factors behind their developments. It turns out that nature and care work together to affect a cat’s constitution as fEline personalities are influenced by a cat’s development, upbringing, and genetics.
Of course, there are variations on these personality types, but it appears that all cats fall into one of the 5 categories.
Which cat personality type best describes your cat, dear?

# 1 – human cat

Keep Human Cats entertained with activities that you can do together. Magic wand toys are great choices as you and Kitty can play together.
# 2 – Hunter Cat
Cats are born hunters. It’s in their wild and ancient DNA, but some cats hurt more after the hunt than others. These are the Hunter Cats. When these predators have access to the great outdoors, they often return home with feathered, furry, or flaky gifts that have been caught by their little paws just for you.
Hunter cats often prefer realistic cat toys to practice their stalking and falling skills. No ribbons and frills for these wild things! Cats with a high foray are happiest with a large area to roam and explore, such as a catwalk. B. an outdoor cat enclosure. There they can watch birds go by while they play with beetles and other brave creatures that might be found on a hunter’s cat’s territory.
# 3 – feline cat
The feline-cat finds solace in being with other cats. They are the cute cats who take care of all the other kittens, always grooming them and touching the noses to give kisses. One cat’s kitten loves to cuddle with other cats and probably the people in the house as well.
This behavior is not a regular occurrence in the wild, but kittens reared with other cats often develop the feline personality. Ask these furry cats with activities that include the whole cat family, such as fun tree climbing and motorized toys that will grab all of the cats’ attention.
# 4 – Cantankerous Cat
Everyone knows a cantankerous cat, and it is often this personality type that non-cat people associate with all cats. As cats with sensitive needs, the Cantankerous are prone to frustration or anger when habits are disturbed. But that doesn’t mean these grumpy cats are always in a bad mood. They just need their independence and distance. Cantankerous cats tend to choose their humans with care and love with wild loyalty. And don’t worry, grumpy cats still want to cuddle. They’ll just let you know when they want them.
Make sure these independent cats have plenty of opportunities to play with. Toys to fly around with when the urge is felt, or even a number of interesting scratches are good options.
# 5 – Curious cat
The curious cat always gets caught up in something! Inquisitive, playful, and sociable, these kittens are generally intelligent beings who are eager to discover anything new in their environment. You can find them in bags, cardboard boxes, or hidden in a strange room that defies logic. Their curiosity drives them to be social, and curious cats like to meet up with new friends. But warn them to keep an eye on their backpacks and wallets as these nosy cuties will definitely paw through them.
Keep these curious animals happy with fresh boxes and bags, as well as toys like puzzle boxes to help them develop their investigative skills.
