The Colorpoint Shorthair cat emerged from the mating of Siamese and American Shorthair cats. This mating is meant to add a different color to Siamese cats. It was recognized as a species by The Association of Cat Enthusiasts in 1964.
This cat type communicates with loud tones. They’re very fond of people. They are talkative and want to accompany you at every moment of your home life. For this reason, it can be said that they are sometimes exhausting. You need to take care of them because they are friendly and social.
The Colorpoint Shorthair cats are intelligent, agile, athletic and playful. They like puzzle type or laser point type toys. Such games for exercises are quite useful. They are loyal to their owners and they need to be interested to feel their loving attitude.
Colorpoint cats have the genetics of Siamese cats and are likely to have similar health problems. Their care is easy. To make the hair shiny, it is sufficient to polish it with a soft cloth after weekly combing. Their nails should be cut once a week, and the ears should be checked regularly. The eyes should be wiped with a slightly damp and soft cloth against any flux. The litter box should be kept clean and hygienic toilet environment should be prepared.
The Colorpoint Shorthair has a long, muscular body with long lines. The head structures resemble a triangular wedge that extends to the tips of the pointed ear. Their medium length, almond shaped eyes are dark blue tones. Their back legs are longer than the front legs. They’re small and elegant. They have a long, slender tail at the end of their bodies.
