A Quieter Type of Cat

This is my first long hair cat, but my sister in law has a Himalayan and encouraged me to find a nice exotic cat. I found this little one at the shelter and decided to take a chance. They truly are a different cat than the other domestic short hairs I have had in the past.
This cat is much quieter than any other cat I have had, she does play but she is particular about her play. She prefers to bounce around after bugs with only minimal interest in strings or other toys. She will only allow herself to be touched when she deems it necessary otherwise she is not a fan of cuddling.
The bad part about long haired cats is well, the hair. She requires brushing, whether she likes it or not, and then there are the hair balls. She cleans herself regularly, and does cough up hair balls on a fairly regular basis.
She is a princess and she knows it, if you can handle the hair, a long haired cat might be a good choice for you.
