Aptly named for its tendency to go limp when picked up and handled, the Ragdoll is probably the most laid back of all cat breeds. They are gentle, affectionate and enjoy laying around the house with their people all day long. If you're looking for a cat to help you relax after a long day's work, the Ragdoll is your breed.
Another large coated breed, Persians are known for being lazy and the stigma is certainly not a myth. Persians enjoy lounging around the house with their people. Although they may seem to be a fancier cat breed, they adapt quite well to apartment life.
This large cat breed thoroughly enjoys relaxing with his people anytime, anywhere. The Maine Coon is considered the gentle giant of the cat world, and they certainly live up to the name.
These beautiful cats are well-suited for apartment life and do not need tons of space to run around and play, as they are much more relaxed than many other felines. Because of their independence, they're able to relax alone while you're at work and enjoy your company when you return.
A devoted lap cat that is also affectionate towards strangers, the Burmese is not known to run and hide from people but instead likes to insert itself into the action around the home in a friendly, calm manner. Decidedly more vocal than some of the other breeds on this list, the Burmese may be chatty and look to strike up a conversation with you whenever it desires. Intelligent and loving, expect your Burmese to snuggle up with you in bed or spend time at your side whenever you're at home.
Exotics have temperaments similar to Persians, and are very docile. They are peaceful cats that adapt well to apartment life, and enjoy spending their time relaxing with their owners.
This unique breed is similar to the Russian Blue in both looks and temperament. Although the Korat is very shy, he's a homebody that just wants to relax with his family all day. The Korat is ideal for individuals living alone or with their significant other, as they adapt well to apartment life and don't enjoy a busy household.
The Selkirk Rex is one of the most interesting looking cat breeds, and shares a similar temperament to the Persian. Therefore, this breed is ideal for those looking for a docile companion that can adapt to apartment life well.
Siberian Forest Cat
Another large, heavy breed, the Siberian Forest Cat is social with people and other cats but is generally mellow, quiet and very laid back. At ease in both a show hall and home environment, Siberian Forest Cats are generally unconcerned about other cats and will often roll onto its back to allow strangers to rub its belly.
These cats get their name from the way their ears are folded backwards, and are also very laid back and affectionate. They make great companions, are very gentle and are perfectly happy to relax all day.
