|This is Delyte. I am my person's fifth black cat: Christopher, Sarah, Silkie, Peri & me. They varied widely in affection. Chris was the most affectionate--he loved everyone. Peri only loved her person, but was very clingy. Sarah was affectionate but not extremely, and the same with Silkie. Her most affectionate cat was a calico, Norah. I am only affectionate when I feel like it, and don't like anyone else other than my person, even our male person or some catsitters who have been very nice. And I have NOT been very nice to the vet people, although I am not as bad as Peri, who was banned from the vet. Stella is pretty nice to everyone, but she is not clingy. She is a mixture of white, tabby, black and ginger.
Depends on how you define affection. There are some breeds--Ragdoll?--that are supposed to be very affectionate or clingy. I am sure that all of these cats loved their person, but they weren't all overtly affectionate.
Right now one of our outside cats, a black male, seeks out being petted even before he gets food, and we are his only source of food, so that is pretty affectionate. [If anyone wants him, we would be glad to try and transport him, although he is an outside cat now and not litter-trained.]
