A majestic-looking feline originally from southeast Asia, the Burmese is a great choice if you want a cat that’ll cuddle up in your lap.

Relatively small in size but often stocky, these friendly cat breeds love curling up for a snuggle, and they have no problem letting their humans know when they want attention.

“Burmese cats are exceptionally affectionate,” says Bruce Silverman, VMD, a practicing vet at Chicago’s Village West Veterinary.

“This has actually been very consistent with the Burmese during their vet visits.”
