Personality And Play
The Bambino cat is an outgoing, affectionate, lap cat that loves to cuddle. They are interactively playful, energetic, and like to be handled.
As with most hairless cats, they get along well with other cats, friendly dogs, and children. They know they look cute and revel in being the center of attention.
When left to themselves, they can amuse themselves by inventing their own games or by pouncing on cat toys. They enjoy a large assortment of various toys and get excited when mom or dad brings home a new addition for their private toy collection.
They love to chase sponge balls, hug and scratch catnip-stuffed cloth bananas, or stalk rattle mice. As long as they have a bunch of “stuff” in the house to keep them busy, they are happy little kitties.
