We think you probably already love these kitties, maybe you just don’t realise it yet. Read on about the Domestic Longhair Cat if you still need convincing.

You love cats

Along with the Domestic Shorthair, this cat is one of the two pillars of cat-kind. These aren’t just any cats, they are the cats. The Domestic Longhair Cat is a wonderful blend of every single cat breed that has ever existed, in a uniquely Australian edition. So, if you love our feline friends and everything they represent, you can’t help but love the Domestic Longhair.

You’re stylish

However, unlike the Domestic Shorthair, there’s a lot of room for style. Maybe you want an all-natural kitty, brushed regularly for maximum fluff and cuddle potential. Or maybe you want to experiment with some funky fur-cuts to keep your feline cool in the summer time. Either way, your Domestic Longhair Cat won’t look out of place on the catwalk.

You’re unpredictable

The Domestic Longhair Cat has… long hair. And that’s about all we can tell you about its appearance. This cat breed comes in quite literally any conceivable combination of colours, patterns, shapes and sizes. So whatever your taste, you’ll find a friendly feline to match.

You’re REALLY unpredictable

Because they’re such an eclectic blend, there’s really no telling what kind of kitty cat you’re getting. And, to be honest, that’s just plain exciting! Without unpredictable cats there would be no adorable cat videos, no pawesome cat memes, and, frankly, no joy in the world. If you love joy, then you should love the Domestic Longhair Cat, it really is as simple as that.

You’re open to adoption

Domestic Longhairs are extremely common, and unfortunately, so many of these beautiful, gentle animals do not have a home to go to. Shelters are always looking for caring humans to adopt any of the hundreds of homeless cats that are taken in every week. No matter the breed, be sure that these gentle, affectionate animals will return your love in kind. If you’ve ever wanted a cat, we really, genuinely encourage you to think adoption first.
