Colorpoint Shorthair

Scientific name: Felis catus
Origin: United States
Body: Medium
Coat Length: Short Hair

Colorpoint Shorthairs are the first cousins of the Siamese and the Cat Fanciers’ Association is the only registry that recognizes them as a standalone breed. In all other registries, they are part of the Siamese and Oriental breeds. These cats are distinguished by their elegance in sixteen different “point” colors beyond the four Siamese colors. The Colorpoint Shorthair shares body style, personality, coat length, and pointed color pattern with the Siamese, but in the untraditional colors of red, cream, tortoiseshell, and lynx (tabby) points.

They are highly intelligent, playful, and people-friendly breed, extremely affectionate and outgoing and enjoy lounging around and playing with people, causing them to also be described as “extroverts”.
