Weight: 9-12 lbs.
Coloring - Exotics come in a wide variety of colors in the solid, shaded, smoke, tabby, bi-color and pointed patterns.
Eyes - Brilliant copper, blue, odd-eyed, hazel, green or blue green. Eye color depends upon coat color.
Overall Appearance - The ideal Exotic should present an impression of a heavily boned, well-balanced cat with soft, round lines.

The thick, plush coat softens the lines of the cat and accentuates the roundness in appearance.

Breed Fact - Exotics are bred to meet the Persian standard in every way with one very special exception: the coat has a thick, dense, plush, short coat. Because of the ease of grooming for this special breed, Exotics are sometimes affectionately referred to as the lazy man's Persian
