Exotic Shorthair Cat
The Exotic Shorthair cat is a breed developed as a short-haired version of the Persian cat. They are identical to the Persian cat except for their shorter, dense coat. The breed came about in the 1950s by crossing Persian cats with American Shorthairs.
Like their Persian cat counterparts, the Exotic Shorthair is not the liveliest of breeds. They are reportedly quiet, cuddly, gentle and affectionate.
