This type of cat is loving, very friendly and easily trained, requiring only daily brushings and feedings. They are excellent around children and do not mind being handled, stroked, picked up, etc. They love to play and are highly intelligent. They can spend hours playing with a child and a piece of string. Also they are excellent with older adults because they are nearly self-reliant. Overall I would rate this an excellent cat for anybody whether they are working with children or homebound aged folks.
