Exotic Shorthair & Persian Personality & Characteristics

Exotic Shorthair kittens have a gentle and calm personality reminiscent of the Persian but are generally livelier than their longhaired ancestors. Exotic Shorthair kittens and Persian kittens (or Exotic Longhair kittens) are curious and playful. 

The endearing Exotic Shorthair kitten or Persian kitten is a peaceful, easygoing companion who will be content to quietly follow you around and then sit in your lap for petting whenever you give him the chance. Both the  Exotic Shorthair and bicolor Persian kitten is very sweet and loving. 

Your Exotic Shorthair kitten / Persian kitten (or Exotic Longhair kitten) will enjoy playing with a toy or chasing a ball or wadded-up piece of paper. Puzzle toys that require him to think and move to release treats or kibble are a great way to keep him occupied when you aren’t there to provide a lap. You can even use a clicker to teach him tricks such as “Sit” or “Wave.”

The Exotic Shorthair kitten is nicknamed “the lazy man’s Persian” because he/she shares the Persian’s sweet face, but his/her short, plush coat is easier to care for. Exotic Shorthair kittens will be more lively than the laidback Persian, but they also love to sit in a lap.

The Exotic Shorthair kitten has the look of a Persian but with a short, plush coat that comes in many beautiful colors and patterns, including chocolates, black smokes, lilacs, creams, colorpoints, solids, bicolors, calicos, tabbies, reds, and tortoiseshell.

The word round is key when speaking of this breed. Exotic Shorthair kittens, Persians or exotic longhair kittens have round eyes, round heads, and rounded bodies.
