Description: Exotic Short haired kittens for sale are a cross between the Persian and American Shorthair cats. The Exotic Shorthair maintains all of the Persian's unique characteristics, minus their long fur, making them quite sought after. The Exotic Short-haired was first recognized as their own breed in 1967. They are avialable in a variety of colors and patterns.
Because of the regular use of Persian as outcrosses, some Exotics may carry a copy of the recessive longhair gene. When two such cats mate, there is a 1 in 4 chance of each offspring being longhaired. Longhaired Exotics are not considered Persians by the Cat Fanciers' Association, although The International Cat Association accepts them as Persians. Other associations like the American Cat Fanciers Association register them as a separate Exotic Longhair breed.
Behavior: Exotic Shorthair cats are most known for their loyal and easy going nature. Curious and playful, they are friendly to other cats and dogs, but they don't like being left alone and need the presence of their owner. Males tend to be more dependent and affectionate than their female counterparts. The Exotic Shorthair has all the gentleness and calm of their Persian ancestors, but are a little bit more active and playful. They have a pleasant temperament and get along great with other pets and kids. They are a quiet breed that enjoys the company of their owners. They don’t require a lot of space, making them ideal for apartment life and are a great companion for the elderly living alone.
