The Exotic Shorthair


The Exotic Shorthair is an American breed born in the 1950s from the crossing between an American Shorthair and a Persian in order to introduce the silver color of the Persian to the American Shorthair. Some Persian breeders, such as Jane Martinke, saw the potential to create a new breed of shorthair Persian, and made crosses with Burmeses and Russian Blue. The Exotic Shorthair was recognized by the CFA in 1967 and allowed to compete in cat shows. Then, it was recognized by TICA in 1979 and by FiFé in 1983. The first Exotics Shorthairs were imported to Europe in 1980.

Although the Exotic Shorthair is the result of several crosses, only marriage with the Persian family has been authorized by the CFA since 1987.
