These kitties come in all colors of the cat rainbow; their mane has been compared to the Maine Coons.
Other than the Coon, the first specific long-haired cat breeds were the Persian and the Angora, which both derived from the Domestic Longhair. They’re known for their elegant look and playful demeanor, especially among other felines. Their average build and long, flowing coat contribute to the popularity of this breed.
Similar to their physical traits, their temperament differs between each kitty. Since the breed is somewhat of a mixture of different domesticated cats, their behavior is not unanimous across all Domestic Longhairs. This also adds to their health. Due to the wide gene pool, Domestic Longhairs are not susceptible to any genetic health issues.
