Exotic Shorthair Cat Breed Profile - Breed Information with Description & Photos

Exotic Shorthair Cat
Exotic Shorthair Kitten  Allie Bear Persians and Exotics






The Exotic Shorthair is the perfect cat for people who love the look and personality of the Persian cat but without the daily grooming. It is often referred to as the “Lazy Man's Persian”. That’s not to say that it never needs grooming and they love to sit on there owners lap and be brushed regularly, but it doesn’t matter if it’s not done every day.

The easiest way to describe an Exotic is to say it is a "Shorthaired Persian". The Exotic must conform to the Persian breed standard in every way except coat length. They have a round cobby body, short thick legs and round massive head, a flat face, short snub nose with large open nostrils and huge round eyes set wide apart.  The difference is that the coat on an Exotic should be very soft and dense and stand away from the body due to its thickness.

Exotic Shorthair Colours

Exotic Shorthairs breed come in all 96 colours of the Persian, these include black, white, cream, blue, himalayan and tortoiseshell with the appropriately matched eye colour.

Exotic Shorthair Personality

The personality of the Exotic cat is like that of the Persian, outgoing, placid, easy to handle and beautiful to look at. This combined with a sense of immense curiosity about what goes on about them makes them the ideal companion.

They are most happy when they are with people and love playing with children or just sitting on a lap or on the arm of your chair. They will follow you wherever you go, even to the bathroom and will talk through the door at you if you dare to close one. Like the Persian, the Exotic personality is a docile, gentle cat with a soft voice. They are sweet-tempered pets who enjoy the comforts of home. They are happy living as part of any family, with working couples, people living alone or families with children and are happy living in a house, flat or apartment as long as they have lots of attention from their people.
