Exotic Shorthair cat breed created and designed to meet the Persian standard. From all points of view. The exception is one: fur, which is thick, thick and short. This gives it the appearance of soft, raised, rounded “teddy bear”.
The Exotic Shorthair cat‘s fur needs less pretentious care than that of the Persian. It does not break and does not flatten too simple. Due to its easy fur maintenance, the Exotic Shorthair cat is in fun named “Persian for lazy people”.
Although Exotica considered to be short-haired, the roots of the breeds differ. Some breeders of American tried to improve the type and introduce new colors. By 1950, in the United States. Thus, they paired American Short hair with Persian. The result, unexpected. The chicks were much more like the person as a guy. They had a shorter body, shorter tail and shorter nose (but without the pronounced stop) and short hair. For many, this little creature is irresistible.
Ordinary cats were still crossed with Persian to get the admirable crushed face. Some breeders used Burma cats for the same purpose (creating short-haired Persians). They have a shorter and stronger body. Thus, the “short-haired Persian” came to inherit that “warm, irresistible” look. Some have used the Blue of Russia to get the quality of the “double” fur which seems to be extra. These cats looked charming and so … exotic.
The first breed standard proposed in 1966, and the first proposed name was “Sterling”. It only referred to the varieties of silver. The other varieties of colors registered under the name of “Exotic Short hair”. Over time, short hair races have used less and less in the breeding program. The Persians used.
Thus, the standard of Exotica is closer to the standard for Persian. In 1990 it decided that the standards for these two breeds would be identical except for the length of the hair.
Responsible for short hair is a dominant gene. That is, one parent possessing the gene will pass on this trait to his descendants. Even if the other parent has long hair, Both parents have short hair, but are the bearers of the long hair (recessive).
Inherited but left dormant, there is a chance that in 25% of cases, the kittens are born with long hair. The gene for long hair can transmitted from generation to generation. It may remain in a latent state. It can also manifest by generating the appearance of the long hair. Characteristic in descendants. When, mating between two cats, the nest can give birth to a long-haired cat
Exotic Longhair or Persian
Exotic breeding sometimes becomes very frustrating and discouraging for some breeders because of a long-haired cat (in the US). Such a kitten will register as Exotic Longhair. It can use in the breeding program. It can present in the competitions. But you will never get Champion titles or other bigger titles.
For most European breeders this is not a problem. According to FIFe rules, when registering a nest, long-haired Most Exotic Short hair specimens today have in their pedigrees the most successful characteristics of the Persians.
Exotic is an ideal breed. Kittens are quiet, sweet, peaceful, loyal, true friends. They are easy to grow and do not seem to bother them. They are affectionate. When I want to capture your attention, it sits in front of you and looks at you straight in the eye. She will jump on your feet or arms to crouch and pull a nap. Or to push his wet nose straight into your nose.
Sometimes he hugs you and never stops. It is very comfortable and practical to have an Exotic at home. It respects your privacy and does not need permanent attention. She will follow you like a shadow from one room to another without disturbing you. He only wants to be with you.
She is as playful and fun-loving as many other breeds. He’ll jump to exhaustion trying to catch the toy. You will stay and study how to get to the most inaccessible places. You no longer play with she, was where the toy hidden.
