The Nebelung, known for its beautiful long, blue-gray coat and mesmerizing emerald eyes, is not just a stunning sight; it’s also a loving and affectionate cat breed that thrives on human companionship. They also love to cuddle.

“The only breed I’ve seen that seems to have consistently high affection is a Nebelung. They’re not a cat for a large family. They have their person, and everyone else is a distant second. I was blessed to be chosen by one, and I’ll miss her for the rest of my life,” says a user.

These gentle giants are happiest when they are curled up on your lap or snuggled beside you on the couch. Ragdolls often follow you around the house and meow softly for pats and cuddles.

The Sphynx cat breed is known for its unique hairless appearance, but their personalities are equally captivating. These playful and energetic felines are also incredibly affectionate, making them popular for people seeking a cuddly companion. Due to their lack of fur, Sphynx cats crave warmth and often seek out their humans for cuddles and body heat. Their warm, velvety skin feels delightful, making them irresistible cuddle partners. 

“Sphynx cats do! They get cold very easily, so naturally, they love to cuddle. If you let them, most will lay on your lap all day, and that’s not an exaggeration. My cats will sleep on me at any moment I’m not standing up. They’ll return to my lap if they need to go to the bathroom. Or I’ll get up to do something, and they’ll patiently wait for me to return, then hop back on me as soon as I’m within range. It can sometimes be too much love!” says a user.

“Add Siberian to that. Mine is a lap cat. He always wants to touch me. Then I read that a few other people had the same experience, and I read somewhere else about the breed being affectionate,” says a user.

They will follow you around the house, always be happy to see you, and appreciate random cuddle sessions on their own terms.

“My Norwegian Forest cat loves cuddles. But, like most Wegies, he doesn’t like being picked up. So keep that in mind if that’s what you go for.”
