About This Quiz

Cats aren't for everyone, but they're definitely for you. At face value, a cat is just an uptight animal that doesn't know what it wants. However, when you take the time to learn more about cats, you realize that you have to earn their trust and affection before you get the reward of snuggles and conversations. 

This is what makes a cat such a unique house pet. While cats can be loyal, they aren't blindly loyal like other animals. Once you earn a cat's trust and affection, you have to continue to show that you are worthy of it. This stems (for the most part) from a cat's instinct to survive. They like to be in charge because they know that they're better hunters than you are. Someone forgot to tell them that we don't have to hunt anymore. 

However, the greatest thing about cats as a species is that their personalities vary from breed to breed. No two cat breeds are the same. Some are very vocal, while others are sluggish. Some need constant attention and affection, while others are anti-social. If you're wondering which cat breed you'll connect with best, answer these questions and we'll tell you which one is your soul pet.
