Nature or Nurture is still fertile ground for philosophical and scientific exploration.The “temperament” question that each
personality paradigm provides, has always been a bugaboo.
I’m of the mind, based on my personal experience and observations, that as a matter of course, both arenas figure in the “beingness” of all creatures.
Internet research with the observations of others, professional and anecdotal alike, can provide rudimentary answers about sociability of particular breeds. Ultimately, it comes down to how kittens are reared and how interactive we humans are in the socialization these creatures.
I have had companion cats for several decades. Rescues, orphans, strays, from age two days, to senior cats adopted near the end of their lives. In all of my many associations with felines, one kind of cat sticks out as “most sociable:” The Male Orange Tabby.
My soulmate, companion cat was rescued by me at 12 weeks old. We spent 20.3 years together. His passing 12 years ago, stays with me. I honestly think about this cat everyday.
Orange Tabbies are warm, attentive, independent, adventurous empathy that seem to just bring light to the planet.
