How to appreciate exotic short haired cats

       The main reason why the exotic short hair cat is so popular is that it looks like a pig’s nose! But we all stubbornly believe that the shorter the nose is, the better. In fact, it is not. Although it requires a line of nose and eye, it does not mean that the shorter the nose, the better! The upper end of the nose of a cat can’t exceed the corner of the eye. When selecting a kitten, the nose of a kitten who has been a month or two is very close to the nose, and there is no distance between the nose and the face. When the cat grows up, most of the noses will not grow very well (if the nose exceeds the corner of the eye, points will be deducted in the competition, which is not conducive to the respiratory health of the cat). Besides, have you ever noticed the ears of exotic short haired cats? I think it’s not the cat owners who care about it! I remind my guests again and again, but they are not very good at reading! The foreign short hair cat’s ear position must be low, the distance between two ears is wide, can have very wide frontal bone (namely skull). The ear should be small, and the ear tip should be round! We all know that the body of exotic short hair cats is very important, but we don’t know how to select the body of young cats! In addition, the eyes of kittens are also very difficult to choose (all cats, no matter what color of eyes, are blue when they are very young, and gradually grow into the color that this breed should have in the process of growing up, and the color of eyes has been getting better and better before adulthood!) Of course, the biggest one in a litter is often the best, but this is not absolute. Sometimes there are sudden changes. Kitten’s figure and eyes are not easy to choose when they are young. It is necessary to look at their parents. If their figure, posture and eye color are very good, the kitten’s must be correct! (exotic short haired cats require weight. They are very big and wide. Exotic short haired cats with good weight usually get a good place in the cat competition!) There is another place I haven’t mentioned. Do you know where it is? It’s the tail! Don’t look at it. It doesn’t matter. It’s very important! The tail of the exotic short haired cat must be short, in proportion to the body, but the tip of the tail should be close to the ground. The tail must be thick, but this problem is easy to solve. If the cat’s fur is thick enough, the tail must be very thick! If you don’t know how to select kittens after reading my article, I’ll tell you the simplest way to see the parents of kittens. All the advantages and disadvantages of kittens are inherited by them! When you buy a cat, you must see the cat’s parents. You can’t look at the kitten very carefully, but you must have a good look at the kitten’s parents. In this way, you can also want to know what your cat looks like when it grows up, which is the most convenient way! Sincerely remind those who love cats and want to keep cats that if you want to choose a good exotic short haired cat (especially those who want to breed), you must choose them step by step and listen to the suggestions of cat breeders! By the way, friends who want to keep exotic short hair cats as pets must also pay attention to it. It is best not to raise this breed of female cats. We all know that the female cats of general breeds are not as beautiful as male cats, but what you may not know is that the female cats of this breed are generally indifferent and do not like to be too close to their owners!

       The main reason why exotic short haired cats are very popular is that their noses (a little like pigs’ noses)! But we all insist that their noses should be as short as possible. In fact, they are not. Although it requires a line between nose and eyes, it does not mean that the shorter the nose is, the better! The upper end of the nose of a cat can not exceed the corner of the eye. When selecting a kitten, a kitten of one or two months old should be selected The nose is very close to the face, and most of the noses don’t grow well when they grow up (the nose is over the corner of the eye, and points will be deducted in the game – such a nose is not good for the breathing health of cats). In addition, have you ever noticed the ears of exotic short haired cats? I don’t think the professional cat owners care about them! I remind my guests again and again, but everyone is not very impressed! The ear position of exotic short haired cat must be low, and the distance between two ears is wide, so that there will be a very wide frontal bone (that is, the skull). The ears should be small and the ear tips should be round! We all know that the body of exotic short haired cats is very important, but we don’t know how to select the body of kittens! And the eyes of kittens are also very difficult to choose (no matter what color the eyes are, they are blue when they are very young, and gradually grow into the color that this breed should have in the process of growing up, and the color of eyes has been getting better and better before adulthood, of course) The biggest one in a litter is often the best, but this is not absolute. Sometimes there are sudden changes. It’s hard to choose a kitten’s figure and eyes when they are young. It’s up to their parents. If their figure, posture and eye color are very good, the kitten’s must not be wrong! (exotic short hair cats require weight, and they are big and wide – foreign short hair cats with good weight will often get a good place in the cat competition!)

       3. Like Persian cats, exotic short haired cats have short, flat noses and are prone to lacrimal duct blockage, so pay attention to facial cleansing.

       4. In spring, all kinds of physiological activities and behaviors of the baby become vigorous and active. Although cats are in love all the year round, most of them are in early spring (from January to March). Under normal circumstances, the estrus period of abnormal short baby will not be significantly different from that at ordinary times. However, if you have not sterilized or castrated it, you should pay more attention to the management of estrus and sexuality, especially when cats of different genders are kept at home.

The key to health is scientific diet, proper exercise, clean and comfortable environment, full enjoyment of sunshine, regular vaccination, and prevention of disease.
