Colorpoint Shorthair

Taken by Wikipedia user Thisherodies.

These cats are cousins of the Siamese. They come in 16 colorpoint colors, unlike the Siamese 4, and are bred from American shorthairs and Siamese. These cats are very vocal, with more than 100 different sounds, and are very affectionate. Sometimes the males think another animal is invading their territory, and will get aggressive to the other creature.

The Chausie can be three colors. Black, brown ticked tabby, and black grizzled tabby. They were bred from the wild Jungle cat. Males are usually 9-15 pounds, and females 7-10. These cats are very active and athletic, and like most cats, pretty intelligent. However, these cats do not like to be left alone, so either have a human companion or other cat with them.

Chartreux

This cat is similar to the British Shorthair, but it comes from France. Their coat is blue, and water resistant, and they have orange or copper eyes.

These cats are also known for a great smile!

Chartreux cats are not very noisy, with not too much meows and cries. They are playful as adults and kittens, and they are pretty intelligent. Some cats learned how to open screen door latches, and others can turn radios on and off. This cat also tends to bond with one person in the house, but stays friends with everyone else.

California Spangled

This cat was bred from the American Shorthair, Abyssinian, and British Shorthair, to look like a house-leopard. One motivation for that was that people wouldn’t want to wear fur, if the fur looked like their cat.

This cat was created when a chinchilla persian cat and a burmese cat were awaiting to be bred. They were in isolation, but a cleaner forgot to close their doors. They then had 4 kittens that were Burmilla.

These cats look similar to Burmese cats. They have short, plush coats, and are medium sized. Some are long-haired though. Many people consider their green eyes to be beautiful, with the black outline around them. Their coat is colored black, blue, brown, chocolate, or lilac. When caring for their coat, it’s advised to brush it once a week.

They are independent, and can be kitten-like into adulthood, being playful, quiet, and affectionate.
