Longhaired Non-Persian Cats

The Persian cat is the most well known longhaired cat, although there are many more. These tend not to hair the same length of hair as the Persian cats, these are probably more semi-longhaired cats.

These cats still need the extra grooming attention and can be just as demanding as a Persian. If you cannot spare the time to look after a longhaired cat, Persian or not, then you should look to a shorthaired cat.

The list to the right, contains information on these other longhaired breeds.
