The Sokoke is a sensitive, smart, playful, loving breed that has a great respect for the family dynamic. They observe their people to assess where they stand on the familial totem pole, and are quick to bend their knee, as it were. While they are no lap cat, they do crave your attention, laying at your feet until their belly has been suitably pet. Still carrying with them some of their wild ways, the Sokoke is going to want to chase and be chased, making them a very active cat and not suitable for a sedated household. .
