Cats certainly know how to get to you. They can meow nonstop for no reason. They can scratch your expensive furniture. They can ‘accidentally’ break a vase or two while exploring your fragile items department. They can also snap at you out of the blue. And while there is often a good explanation for their naughty behaviour, some cats seem to have a genetic predisposition to driving you mad and require years of finding a special approach to their mysterious feline souls.

These gorgeous beasts live up to their reputation. Siamese cats are known for being one of the most aggressive and territorial felines. These needy attention seekers are also famous for their relentless talking. Some say that they will meow when they wake up in the morning, when they get excited, when they want to get petted, when they are hungry, and for just about any other reason that you can think of.

If Siamese cats are overlooked, they'll revolt. Lady and the Tramp is a perfect example of how far they can go.

Sphynxes are intelligent and motivated cats that thrive when provided enough physical activity. They are capable of learning tricks, with some owners saying that they have successfully taught their pets to play fetch.

Despite having been properly domesticated, these gorgeous crosses of leopard and housecat are still wild at heart. They can develop territorial spraying or extreme play aggression if their basic needs are not met. They are also incredibly vocal and can behave like watchdogs by meowing when strangers approach the door. They’ll make plenty of noise before mealtime or when they’re bored too.

Bengals require more exercise than other cats. If you’re looking for a low-maintenance lap pet, these beauties are not for you.

Bombays are known to be active, fearless, and have a litter-box aversion. Rough and aggressive play style is their biggest downfall as they can get carried away and startbiting and scratching as part of their ‘having fun’ routine.

Bombays make excellent pets for strong, committed owners who put time into training them.
