may not be among the most affectionate of animals, but some cat breeds can take
you by surprise with how open to snuggling up they are. Cats can be quite
distant and aloof, agreed. They aren’t as ready to cuddle as dogs are, either.
However, this doesn’t mean that cats don’t need affection from their humans.

more than to curl up and go to sleep in your lap. The difference is, cats tend
to be independent and may not necessarily express this need. Listed below are 5

cuddle buddies -

being held and handled by their human companions just as any pup would.

energy. They love being the center of attention and being tasked with helping

your Singapura tucked into your blanket beside you when you sleep – it's only
