Oriental Shorthair Cat

Series of drawings of Oriental Shorthair Cats in assorted postures

Developed from the Siamese, the Oriental Shorthair cat closely resembles that of its foundational breed with its wedge-shaped head, almond-shaped eyes, and slender physique. It also has extremely large ears, extending the shape of the wedge. Differences come in relation to color as the Oriental Shorthair’s coat varies with over 300 combinations and its eyes are typically a green hue rather than blue. Just like the Siamese, the Oriental Shorthair can be rather vocal, highly intelligent, and (despite its build) has great athletic ability.

Cats (Felis catus), often referring to as domestic or house cats, are small carnivorous mammals that are typically domesticated as pets by humans. First kept for the task of hunting mice, cats today remain popular pets because of their companionship. Cat breeds vary by origin, size, and coat types.
