What is an Exotic Shorthair Cat and Exotic Shorthair Temperament?

Exotic shorthairs are a natural breed first created by crossing the Exotic with the Persians. Exotics have a shorter nose and coat than Persians, helping them to breathe better and be more active. They also have rounder heads and wider-set eyes than Persians do, which makes them cuter as pets. Exotics come in every colour of the Persian except for the chocolate point colours because breeding those colours

together can produce defective kittens (or worse). Their coats tend to be silky and soft like other Exotic varieties; they may take more grooming to keep clean and tangle-free but it’s worth it because they’re such good cats! Exotics don’t have the flat face of a Persian, so you will be able to see their whiskers and eyebrows. Exotics are very social and love to spend time with their owners, especially if they can help out around the house! Exotic cats make great pets for people who own birds because they are gentle enough even to play with babies. Exotic Shorthairs inherit the best qualities from both Exotic and Persian parents. Exotics have sweet dispositions like Exotics but also possess Persians’ love for cuddles and affection. They are perfect family pets thanks to their blend of Exotic shorthair temperament traits!

Exotic Shorthair – Health

If you’re looking for an exotic shorthair cat breed that’s intelligent, active, and has a good temperament, the Exotic Shorthair is a great choice. Exotic shorthairs are also a healthy breed – they typically live long lives of 15-20 years. However, as with any other breed of cat, there are some things you should be aware of before you decide to bring an Exotic into your home.

One common health issue that Exotic Shorthairs can suffer from is obesity. Exotics are prone to becoming overweight if they’re not given enough exercise and are fed too many high-calorie foods. Symptoms of obesity in cats include difficulty breathing, excessive panting, and joint problems.

Another thing to look out for is hairballs. Exotic Shorthairs groom themselves very well, but Exotics are heavy shedders. Exotic Shorthairs need to be brushed every day to remove excess hair before they start to form clumps in the stomach that can make them sick. If your Exotic starts throwing up or having diarrhoea frequently, he may have swallowed too much of his own hair and needs professional help from a veterinarian.

Aside from these two common cat health issues, Exotic Shorthairs are healthy kitties! They’re not susceptible to many of the problems that plague certain other breeds of cats, so you don’t have to worry too much about Exotics becoming sick or injured.

Exotic Shorthair – Care & Training

What does an Exotic shorthair eat? How often should I groom my Exotic? How do I litter box train my Exotic cat?

All of these are important questions to ask before you bring an Exotic Shorthair into your home! Exotics are carnivores and need a diet that is high in protein. They should be fed a diet of wet and dry food specifically designed for cats. You can find this food at most pet stores.

As for grooming, Exotics should be brushed every day to remove excess hair. They also need to be bathed every few months using a mild shampoo made specifically for cats. You can find this shampoo at most pet stores as well.

Exotic Shorthairs are very easy to litter box train – they usually learn how to use the litter box very quickly. Place the litter box in a quiet, accessible spot and put a small amount of kitty litter (preferably unscented) inside. Exotic Shorthairs are excellent about keeping their kitty litter clean, so it’s a good idea to change the box once a week.

Caring for an Exotic Shorthair is not difficult, but it is important to be aware of the things they need in order to stay healthy and happy. With a little bit of TLC, your Exotic Shorthair will be a beloved member of your family for many years!
