The Oriental Longhair is as intuitive as you want it to be, inheriting many of their best features – intelligence, grace, curiosity, a strong body, a trusting, affectionate nature – from its Siamese ancestry. The fine dense texture of the cat’s coat makes it seem less angular than its short-haired relative. It is svelte, refined and very lithe with its tail plume being long and feathery.
This is one cat that’s almost always in excellent physical condition, but you might need to keep a bottle of aspirin within reach because its indefatigable nature could test your patience. Nonetheless, it makes an excellent pet. If you’ve already invested in the Oriental Longhair, you’re in for a fun ride, and even if you are just in it to have a different breed of cat in your home, you’ll still appreciate it.
