Pssst, looking for some cute fur babies? You’ve come to the right place, daddy-o. Sit back in your swanky pad and have a gander at the 5 reasons we love the adorable Exotic Shorthair cat breed.


They have cool beginnings

Exotic Shorthair cats swung onto the scene in the late 1950s. Developed from fancy pants Persians and the sturdy American Shorthair cat breed, they were officially recognised by the Cat Fancier’s Association in 1966. These mid-century modern masterpieces take the best of both of their feline forebears and whip them up into a far-out furball of cute.    


No-one can resist the smoosh

Just like their frou-frou Persian parents, the Exotic Shorthair has a smoosh face that will have you squeeing and smiling all day long. However, they don’t like to hold onto the past and have opted to wear a nifty short coat that reflects their laid back and low maintenance mood.


A cartoon come to life

Your hooman heart is no match for the wide and adorable eyes of the Exotic Shorthair cat breed. These babies will have you weak at the knees before you can say “aww!”. If you’re after a cartoon cat come to life, the Exotic Shorthair cat is the breed of choice for you.  


Playful plus placid

The Persian lineage of The Exotic Shorthair cat breed is evident in the placid and calm personality they display, but they add a dollop of youthful exuberance to the mix with their playful nature. They like to stay close to the ground but can tussle a cat toy with the best of ‘em.   


Happy to be huggin’

If it’s a cuddle buddy you’re after then look no more. Nothing razzes an Exotic Shorthair’s berries like a snuggle with their hip hooman. They love to be held and handled and will happily oblige a nuzzle from their favourite person or fur-sibling.


If you aren’t in love with the Exotic Shorthair cat breed by now there may be no hope for you, hooman. Perhaps it’s more fluff that you need? Alright then, come and have a snuggle with the top 5 fluffy cat breeds here.
