Exotic Shorthair Kitten and Persian Kitten Personality & Characteristics

All Exotic Shorthair kittens and Persian kittens (or Exotic Longhair kitten) whether chocolate or any other color, 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 and Persian kitten (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. 

Your chocolate Exotic Shorthair kitten or chocolate Persian kittens 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 shares the Persian’s sweet face, but his short, plush coat is easier to care for. Your chocolate Exotic Shorthair kittens will be more lively than the laidback Persian, but they also love to sit in a lap.
