Exotic Shorthair Kitten & Persian Personality & Characteristics

All exotic shorthair kittens have a gentle and calm personality reminiscent of the Persian but are generally livelier than their longhaired ancestors. Exotic Shorthair kittens (Or ESH kittens / short hair Persian kittens) and Persian kittens (or red Exotic Longhair kittens) are curious and playful. They are friendly to other cats and dogs, but they don’t like being left alone and need the presence of their owner.

Exotic Shorthairs & Persians are endearing

The endearing Exotic Shorthair kittens and Persian kittens (or Exotic Longhair 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. 

What kind of toys will my Exotic Shorthair or Persian enjoy?

Should you purchase a red Exotic Shorthair or red Persian (red Exotic Longhair) your 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.
