Meet Our Family
We are a CFA registered small hobby breeder located in sunny southern California a few blocks from the beach. We specialize in color pointed Himalayan exotics, short and longhaired, (love the striking blue eyes). We breed for our pleasure to produce show quality kittens/cats to the standards of CFA and TICA Associations. Not every kitten can be used in the showing process so we place these kittens in approved quality pet homes. Kittens are given their core vaccine and de-wormed twice before they leave our home. Our home is a loving, clean, cat friendly place, they are raised under foot with much love and care. They are groomed daily, each baby is gently handled throughout the day to accustom them to being held, carried around and cuddled. Socialization is the key to raising confident and people oriented kittens. Therefore, we are a cage free cattery with the exception of safety for our Mom's when birthing new kittens. Our kittens come from top quality bloodlines (Laureden, Compri, Sunstream, Karabel, Kittystone, Tanglebox, Oakhaven, Playwickey) to name a few.
ABOUT EXOTIC SHORTHAIR
The exotic shorthair is a breed of cat developed to be a short-haired version of the Persian (Colorpoint Himalayan). The exotic is similar to the Persian (Colorpoint Himalayan) in many ways, including temperament and conformation with the exception of the short dense coat. The exotics have a gentle and calm personality reminiscent of the Persian, but are generally livelier than their longhaired ancestors. Curious and playful and they are friendly to other cats and dogs. They tend to show more affection and loyalty than most breeds and make excellent lap cats. Their calm, steady nature makes them ideal apartment cats for city dwellers. Unlike the high maintenance Persians the exotic is able to keep its own fur tidy with little human assistance. Weekly brushing and combing is recommended to remove loose hair and reduce shedding and hairballs. As with other flat-faced animals, the exotic's tear ducts are prone to overflowing due to the nasolacrimal duct, which can dampen and stain the face. This can be relieved by daily wiping the cat's face with a warm moistened cloth with water. There are also products on the market to help keep that beautiful clean face.
This breed ages slowly, as it does not reach maturity until around two years of age and enters puberty fairly late. When two exotic shorthairs are crossed they may produce long-haired kittens called Exotic Longhairs, by the CFA. Externally, they look like Persians (Colorpoint Himalayans).
