    Having had cats as pets most of my life, I would classify them as friendly but not tame. They are much closer to their wild cousins than dogs are. If we had housecats the size of our bigger dogs, a lot of neighborhoods would probably find the occasional small child missing.

    Over the years, I have found that the best way to select kittens from a litter is to sit a few feet away from them and wait for kittens to come over to investigate. The ones that come over and are friendly are likely to make very good pets. Just wading in and grabbing the cutest appearing one can sometimes lead to unfriendly pets.

    There really are very few variations among cats. Each species resembles the other far more than canine species do.

    What rd said about waiting for a cat to approach you is so true. Many swear that cats like to select the people they want to affiliate with and it’s best to let the cat do the choosing,
