Article in the Mail online (no idea how to link, sorry) says cats fall into one of five personality types - human, hunter, cantankerous, cats' cat and inquisitive.
My boy is human. Not a lap cat but does enjoy snuggling up close in bed, head butts, etc, and adapts very well when we take him to my mom's or on holiday.

Not sure my two fit into any of those categories! They are gorgeous and affectionate but are very thick!

No cats are:
Thugs
Tarts
Playful pussies
Lazy slobs
Commanders of all they survey

I have one normal cat and one jealous slut.

Mine thinks it's a dog and falls out of trees.

Leroy is just Leroy tbh. Utterly bonkers. (Yes he is is trying to get out of the letterbox.)

One shy but affectionate, one major attention-seeker! The attention-seeker had her annual boosters today, and was parading up and down the vet's table like a fashion model grin.

YesItsMe ha ha, that's hilarious! Does he think it's a very narrow cat flap? He's got a beautiful coat, btw.

yes what a puffy tail!!!

My girls def part human part hunter. All the head butts and nuzzles and snuggles in the world. Then bam. Bites your hand.

I have a cantankerous old gent and a batshit clumsy girl, she is nuts I swear, and wrecks everything, this month alone we've lost a mosaic bath ornament, and soap dispenser, a 34 inch flat screen, 3 glasses and a bowl, almost lost the laptop owing to her spilling a glass of water near it, and has chipped the side of it by knocking it of the table...it was teetering anyway.

Oh dear, just read it. I have a Cantankerous Cat, but I wanted a Human Cat.

Mines a human and a hunter,

Sometimes both at once.

He is known to hunt his humans when most vulnerable grin

He knows the moment where he will get a best strike - when we get undressed for bed and put one leg into bed (leaving the other leg hopelessly exposed) he will pounce and have a little knaw on the leg haha!

More scary than it is painful. Luckily its a play bite, and he never bites hard enough to leave a mark.

I have a ginger human, a black and white cats cat and a black hunter smile

YesItsMeIDontCare Mon 30-Jan-17 21:58:52

I've (finally) found the article and can safely say that Leroy is a little bit of all of them... with a hefty dose of Wolfiefan's "Commander of All He Surveys".

Bonkers.

Can you link? smile

YesItsMeIDontCare Mon 30-Jan-17 22:04:58

I can't link... sorry. sad

<almost as thick as the cat>

TrustySnail Mon 30-Jan-17 22:07:16

Here is a link.

My 3 are combinations of the 5 personalities. I have one who's a prolific hunter, one who can be cantankerous and one who's a little bit of a cat's cat.

Weedsnseeds1 Mon 30-Jan-17 22:27:31

I think mine's mainly a human cat, with a hefty dose of hunter thrown in!

OliviaStabler Mon 30-Jan-17 22:31:11

Missed one. Scardy cat. That's mine. I happen to speak to my neighbour while letting myself in the house she is under the bed sad

Quodlibet Mon 30-Jan-17 22:34:15

Mine is a git.

Papergirl1968 Mon 30-Jan-17 23:25:19

Loving that pic of poor Leroy!

Trustyourself2 Mon 30-Jan-17 23:51:13

Weeds - hilarious.

AmberNectarine Mon 30-Jan-17 23:53:24

I've got one and his personality type is Bellend.

AmberNectarine Mon 30-Jan-17 23:54:20

Also, Leroy is a splendid name. This is Denzel.
