Every cat is unique and individual, but cats from the same breed can share similar traits. As such, some breeds are known for being calmer, other more dependent.
It’s important to take into account that characteristics of any pet you wish to adopt. If you are a talkative person and you would like a chatty cat to match your personality, then this is the article for you! Here are the top 5 most talkative cat breeds.
#1 - The Siamese, world-class talker
It would be impossible to draw up a list of talkative cat breeds without bringing up the famous Siamese. They’re known for having this quirky trait and most of these cats would love to chat away with you for hours. Siamese cats blur the lines between cat and dog behaviours; they’re generally very close to their owners and love playing fetch-style games. They need lots of attention and definitely speak up for themselves!
#2 - The Sphinx, making themselves heard
The Sphynx is famous for its unique appearance, but don’t be fooled, these cats are not completely hairless! They actually have a very fine coat of fluffy fur that is soft to the touch. This breed tends to be energetic and sociable, and definitely doesn’t hesitate to tell you what it wants. They often love to ‘talk’ back when you chat away to them too!
#3 - The Oriental Shorthair, clever and chatty
The Oriental is closely related to the Sphinx and is intelligent and athletic. These cats are known for being vocal and spending their time with humans. Go ahead and start a conversation with him or her, and you’ll see how much they love to talk back. Now all you have to do is decipher what they’re saying...
#4 - The Burmese, talks when needed
Originally from Asia, the Burmese cat really developed in the UK and the USA. They’re sociable and often carry their youthful, kitten spirit into adulthood! This means lots of cuddles, games and, of course, chatter. While many cats show you what they want through their attitude or a very expressive stare, the Burmese prefers to verbally get your attention.
#5 - The Tonkinese, it runs in the family
The Tonkinese is a cross between the Burmese and the Siamese, so it stands to reason that they have inherited characteristics from both sides! The result is a playful, intelligent cat that loves forming strong bonds with their human. Of course they have also inherited the chatty traits of both breeds, which is why we just couldn’t miss this breed off the list!!
