Her need for contact is limited by her aloof nature. The only difference between this cat and her vocal counterpart is the extent to which her fear and anger are obvious to people who would interfere with her for good or ill. Provision of food shelter, and security are the way to win the heart of a CADQ cat. Familiarity and a sense of control are needed for her to feel comfortable, but she also needs her space.
The CADQ kitten will tend to be shy and may greet your advances with a defensive aggresive posture (halloween cat), if she does not just run away. Early (less than 7 weeks of age) positive contact with people is most likely needed to establish a foundation upon which future relationships can be built. A calm non-reactive demeanor, food, and patience are the tools needed to win her trust, a trust that is easily broken if you make her feel uneasy.
This is not a cat who likes to live in groups. The CADQ cat is probably happiest when she is able to establish a territory and conduct her affairs with minimal social interaction. She wants to know the boundaries of her territory and she wants others to recognize them as well. The CADQ cat may not be the one you observe engaging in the behavior even though she may initiate the cycle of urine marking. Cautious aloof cats may be able to live harmoniously in multi-cat homes as long as there is sufficient space and their boundaries are respected by all. Living in a single cat household with a person who has reasonable expectations when it comes to display of affection may work out best.
Even though she tends to be quiet, she is defiant with little desire for physical contact, and she hates the anxiety and loss of control she feels when removed from her home territory.
Aloof cats with a defiant nature that causes them to adopt a defensive aggressive response to fear or anger are not the easiest cats to live with. A cautious nature makes this cat more easily spooked than her bold counterpart so her defiance is more often an expression of fear.
If you want a lap cat that showers you with love and affection, the CADQ is not the cat for you.
I love my introverted girl! Kiska is very affectionate and does not suffer from all the neuroses they list. She is shy and doesn't rejoice in Persik, though.
Bold and Social, the BSPV cat enjoys adventure and companionship. It is easy to make friends when you meet a confident cat with a vocal communication style, who actively seeks attention. When his vocal style includes a large vocabulary of pleasant chirps and mews, the BSPV can be the 'perfect' cat. However, if your idea of the 'perfect' cat is a quiet house quest who is pleasant but undemanding, the BSPV cat may be too needy for your tastes. When his vocal communication style is loud and repetitive, with a limited vocabulary, this attentive cat may drive you nuts.
As a kitten the BSPV cat is likely to be the one that meows in greeting, runs over to you, climbs into your lap, and steals your heart. Bold, social, compliant cats generally live happily in groups. BSPV/Q cats are just easy to get along with so the chances of forming friendships is greater than with some other temperament types.
Once a kitty learns that you are easily intimidated, even a compliant cat can dictate your behavior.
Whether or not this temperament type occurs with greater frequency in any particular breed of cat remains to be seen. It is however a temperament type that is likely to appeal to many cat owners.
Persik is not this loud all the time, only at meal times for he is very greedy.
