The Birman is a generally well-mannered cat that is loving and affectionate with their humans. These gentle cats are very popular for their sweet disposition and calm personalities.
Ragdolls are notable for collapsing into the arms of anyone who holds them, even if they are cradled on their back. They love their people, greeting them at the door, following them around the house.
