Oriental Shorthair

Oriental Shorthair Breed

Lovingly referred to as the “Rainbow Cat,” Oriental Shorthairs are available in over 400 colors. They come in a multitude of patterns.  Armed with all the attributes of the Siamese cat; the long lean body, athletic legs, wedge-shaped head and expressive, almond eyes, Orientals possess a unique personality that wishes to claim you as their own.

Whereas some cats will just find a nice, sunny spot to nap the day away, Orientals on the other hand want to nap where you are. They follow you from room to room, they wait patiently (or impatiently) when you are otherwise occupied. They are the first one to greet you at the door. They want to be the center of your world for it is there they blossom.

Highly desirable by cat lovers worldwide, Orientals decorate your home and occupy your heart fairly quickly.
