Do males or females make better pets?

This is a really tough question! Most of my females are just as friendly as my boys. Generally speaking though, males are more "in your face" wanting love and attention most all day long. Girls generally are more aloof, sleeping most late-mornings & afternoons away. All cats have unique personalities though, and the breeder or rescue will know which personality the kitty you are looking at has. If you are looking at a breeders home, ask to see the parents and observe the behavior of any related cats at the house. This might give you some insight as to how your potential kitty may behave. Keep in mind though that even the friendliest cats can be more timid when someone new is in their home, especially if you bring children into their home.
