Exotic Shorthaired Cat Breeds
The Exotic looks very much like a Persian with the only real difference being they have much shorter and denser coats. They also boast having extremely sweet faces with massive eyes and short noses. Because they have short, square bodies, this gives them a teddy-bear like appearance which makes the Exotic all the more endearing.
Their heads are large and round with a good width to their skulls. They have small ears with rounded tips that are set well apart and quite low on a cat’s head. Cheeks are full and foreheads are nicely rounded which adds to an Exotic’s sweet appeal. Their noses are broad and very sort and which boast a stop. Noses are nicely formed and chins are strong. They have powerful, broad jaws and thick, short necks. Their eyes are a brilliant colour, very large and set nicely apart on a cat’s face.
They have medium or large size bodies that are quite cobby in appearance. Chests are broad and deep with cats having very large, well-muscled shoulders and rumps. Legs are short, strong and thick with cats having rounded, large paws with tight toes. Cats have five toes on their front feet, but only four on their back ones. Their tails are short, but nicely in proportion to the rest of a cat’s body.
When it comes to their coat, the Exotic boasts having a thick, plush and soft to the touch coat that stands well off from their body thanks to the fact the hair is so dense. Their coats are medium in length, but the hair is not so long that it flows. Exotics come in a variety of colours which includes seven solid colours which are as follows:
