This ancient Russian breed is believed to be more than 1,000 years old. And though it could definitely get the title of “classic cat” thanks to its age, it certainly doesn’t have classic cat-like attributes.
It’s known to be particularly playful and even dog-like in demanding your affection and wanting to interact with humans. In fact, they’re happy to interact with anyone around whether it be a miniature human (aka a kid), a dog, or many other animals.
As a bonus on top of all this delightfulness, it also makes more of a chirping rather than meowing sound, so you can get that extra little bit of charm to go with this super fun personality.
