Because they don’t like being left alone, you shouldn’t get an Exotic Shorthair kitten if he or she is going to be left home alone for long periods of time. In this case, you may consider getting a second kitten so they can keep each other company when you’re not there. As always, you’ll want to keep in mind that each cat is different. Or if you have another cat or dog, you may have a perfect playmate. See our Mon Chéri kittens with their other pets.

Are Exotic Shorthair Kittens Loud?

Exotic Shorthair kittens have a soft, melodious voice that does not sound too loud or annoying. They also mostly communicate with their eyes, which are round. Because of their friendly behavior, Exotic Shorthair kittens can blend well in households with children.

How Long Do Exotic Shorthair Kittens Live?


It’s average lifespan is 12-15 years. Although it is not uncommon to hear of people who have had theirs up to 21 years old.

Are Exotic Shorthair Kittens Mean?

They are not mean in any way. Exotic Shorthair kittens have a gentle and calm personality. Curious and playful, they are friendly to other cats and dogs, but they don’t like being left alone without a person or another pet. 

Do Exotic Shorthair Kittens Purr?

You might not hear an Exotic Shorthair kitten or cat meow often, but they will never stop purring. They’re the kind of cat you can inch toward, and they start purring instantly. They’re little bundles of love. Hear our Mon Chéri Marvin purring in his new home in Iowa with Sally D.

Should you buy from a Breeder or Cattery? 

We understand there are questionable breeders and scams out there. Whether you purchase from us or another cattery, we urge you to verify legitimacy on CFA which stands for The Cat Fanciers’ Association, Inc. and is currently the world’s largest registry of pedigreed cats and known as the most prestigious pedigreed cat registering association in North America. We would also be happy to provide a video conference call. 

A reputable Exotic Shorthair and Exotic Longhair cattery or breeder take a lot of time and effort to make sure your kitten is just right for you and the healthiest kitten possible. “Back yard” breeders will sell kittens too early, barely weaned without shots and don’t care if you don’t get your kitten spayed or neutered. They also don’t care if you declaw. “Back yard breeders” won’t be there to help you through the process of bringing the kitten home, getting it used to you, your home, your family and your other pets. If you should need help after the purchase, a reputable breeder will be there for you, for the life of your Exotic Shorthair or Exotic Longhair kitten. Buying from a cattery will also help protect your investment from the scams online, such as buying what you think is a “cheap Exotic Shorthair kitten for sale” and it turns out to be an older Exotic Shorthair cat with health issues, inbred or not really even a Exotic Shorthair kitten.

What is CFA or The Cat Fanciers’ Association, Inc.? 

CFA or The Cat Fanciers’ Association, Inc. is currently the world’s largest registry of pedigreed cats and known as the most prestigious pedigreed cat registering association in North America.
