Cats can be loving creatures, but if you have small children, you may want to take some extra time picking out a cat for your family. While nearly any cat breed can adopt to children, some breeds are better suited than others.

For example, Maine Coon cats are generally friendly and adaptable to the noise and antics of children. Another cat that’s sure to get along with children is the Ragdoll cat, which gets its name because it tends to go limp whenever you pick it up.
