Exotic Cat Facts
The Exotic boasts having a dense coat that lies well away from the body and as such they need to be brushed on a regular basis only not quite as much as their longer haired Persian cousins. A twice weekly brush is all it takes to keep their coats in good condition and to remove dead and loose hair. Like other breeds, they tend to shed the most in the Spring and then again in the Autumn when more frequent brushing is usually necessary to keep on top of things.
Their eyes need to be gently wiped from time to time to remove any build-up at the inner corners which does tend to happen more frequently in Exotics than other breeds. It’s also important to check a cat’s ears on a regular basis and to clean them when necessary. If too much wax is allowed to build up, it can lead to a painful infection which can be hard to clear up. In short, prevention is often easier than cure with ear infections. Cats often suffer from ear mites which can be a real problem which is why it’s so important to check their ears on a regular basis which means catching the problem early.
