Orientals originated from Thailand's ancient Siamese cats. They were imported to America and Europe in the late 1800s.
Orientals have a slender but muscular build, large ears, slanted eyes, and a long, tubular body for their medium size.
Intelligent, active, and vocal, Orientals thrive when involved in family activities and receive lots of attention.
Orientals are extremely energetic and agile. Plan on providing them with ample playtime and interaction.
Orientals come in many colors like red, cream, chocolate, blue, lilac, cinnamon, fawn, and silver-white.
Their short, fine coat requires just weekly brushing and rare bathing to keep looking sleek.
Orientals form deep bonds and actively engage their families. But their need for attention can be exhausting!
