The Minskin cat is a very people orientated cat. If you want a lap cat that likes lots of attention this is the feline for you. She may have short legs but she can still climb with the best of them although her route may not be as direct and her hunting gene is still very much in tact. She is also incredibly warm to the touch and is ideal for people who have arthritis or similar problems in their hands. Also because of her lack of coat she is potentially an ideal companion for anyone with cat allergies although seeking medical advice is always recommended
