About the Exotic Shorthair Cat Breed
What do you get when you cross a Persian Cat with a Teddy Bear? From it’s Persian looks, short, plush coat and endearing personality, one would almost think that’s how the Exotic Shorthair cat breed came to be!
Exotics offer the best of both worlds to the cat lover – the exotic looks and quiet, affectionate, loyal and playful temperament of the Persian – and a short, dense coat that is easier to care for than the labor-intensive grooming regime required for it’s long-haired relatives.
Exotic Shorthair cats make excellent family pets. Not much bothers them, and they love to be around people – without being too demanding. They keep their kitten-like playfulness throughout their lives, and offer plenty of entertainment and companionship.
