Exotic Shorthair Kitten Fun Facts

No doubt, there is much to learn when it comes to the adorable Exotic Shorthair kitten. Check out these fun facts!

  • On occasion, Exotics Shorthair kittens are born with long hair. When this occurs, the kittens may be referred to as Persian kitten or an Exotic Longhair kitten.
  • Exotic Shorthair kittens are not jumpers or sprinters, although they may still have an occasional run around in the house. Instead of finding them perched atop your refrigerator, there’s a much greater chance you will find your Exotic lounging on the couch.
  • The initially proposed name for this breed was the “Sterling,” since the kittens were supposed to be silver.
  • These fluffy felines have appeared on television, in movie theaters, and across social media. Various cats such as Garfield, Snoopy, Hello Kitty and Felix the Cat have accumulated hundreds of thousands of fans.
  • Everyone’s favorite cartoon cat, Garfield, is said to have been partially inspired by the Exotic Shorthair.
