Get to know the Asian Cat
All you need to know about the breed
The medium-sized Asian cat hails from the UK (confusing name, right?) and is similar to the Burmese cat in character if just a smidge less high-spirited. Amiable and affectionate, the Asian cat thrives on attention and likes to be in the company of their humans as much as possible. For some, the breed may need just a bit too much attention. However, if you’re at ease with having a feline shadow you will appreciate the Asian cat’s sensitive nature, which makes them considerate pets.
The Asian cat will be content in an apartment, but their curiosity often leads them to explore outdoors. An enclosed space, such as a garden or balcony, will allow them to have daily adventures. This is an agile cat who enjoys showing off their jumping skills. Got high bookshelves? Expect to spot your Asian cat on them at some point!
This outgoing feline makes a great playmate for young children, although training and supervision are essential. With early socialisation, the Asian cat also peacefully cohabits with other confident cats and cat-friendly dogs. Your Asian cat may try to be top of the pecking order if other felines are around - firm but gentle training will help them understand that there’s no hierarchy. They’re an active breed but the Asian cat will be content to curl up in your lap once they’re burned off some of that energy.
