Living with an Oriental Shorthair

I lived with Paisley for approximately a year and a half. Although she was technically my rommmate's cat, I was able to bond with her in the time that I lived in the household. Paisley is a beautiful cat; I believe her color was called ebony-ticked tabby, and the oriental shorthair coat is shiny and easy to maintain. paisley had a fantastic personality and the characteristics of her breed are very close to what I'd consider to be an ideal breed.!she is extremely intelligent and was able to be trained to walk on a leash outdoors and enjoyed the time spent on walks to the park. She was also able to be trained to use the toilet with a training ring. She was always extremely playful, but was a wonderful cuddle partner, as well; when my roommate was out of town, or at work late. Paisley would sleep in my bed and always liked to be close to her humans. She was VERY vocal, but air never found it to be excessive or inappropriate. This breed I also extremely affectionate; while I appreciate this quality in a cat, it may cause me to reconsider obtaining t
This breed for myself, as I travel for work, and would worry that a deficit of attention from the owner may not work well for this breed. Aside from the high need of attention, I think that this breed is wonderful. It would be a great fit for the types of people searching for a cat that has many of the pleasing characteristics of canines.
