Domestic Long-Hair Information

Because Domestic Longhairs are of mixed ancestry, their temperaments can be hard to predict. Some cats are quiet and docile while others are more active and vocal. Some are affectionate, while others are independent. Most are playful when they are young. Some enjoy the company of children and other pets.

What They Are Like to Live With

All Domestic Longhairs have one thing in common: their fluffy coat. Owners of this type of cat must spend 20 minutes at least once a week brushing out the coat to avoid mats and hairballs.

That's not great news for cats, however, because many of those kittens end up as strays.In 2007, pet adoption organization Pets Across America warned that more and more kittens were popping up in shelters across the country, a trend they attributed to longer summers.
