Siamese Cats

While they are a bit high-maintenance, Siamese cats are very particular about their families. They view themselves as most important, but they also view you as second most important. They’ll likely bond more with one family member than the others, and their loyalty is fierce.

This may sound weird but the Persian is loyal because it’s selfish. This royal-esque cat will love you up and down because it wants your attention. The more it loves you, the more attention you give him. The more attention you give him, the more he loves himself and thus you becoming more and more loyal.

These cats have a very distinct look with kind of pointy heads and short hair. They’re not exactly fluffy lap cats who love to be pet and coddled, but they are very loyal and they love other pets and children.
