Silent & Quiet Cat Breeds

If you want feline companionship but want to maintain a quiet environment, consider a silent or quiet cat breed. They still purr and may even meow from time to time, but they are much less vocal than other breeds. Rather than meowing or chirping at you, instead they’ll cuddle or nudge you for playtime and meal times. Explore our list of silent and quiet cat breeds below to find a quiet companion.
