Oriental cats are the most graceful, graceful and sophisticated animals tamed by man. Orientals are very friendly and extremely sociable. They easily get along with other pets, but they always give their preference to the owner. Distinguishing an oriental cat from other breeds is not difficult at all, thanks to its unique oriental appearance.
Despite the flexibility and grace of the oriental cat, its body is quite muscular. It is slender and long, with a well-toned belly. In its shape, the body of an oriental cat strongly resembles a pipe.
Oriental cats are distinguished from others by their long, slender, muscular legs. Moreover, the hind legs of the representatives of this breed are higher than the front ones. Oriental paw pads are small and oval.
Oriental cats can be recognized by their straight, long, pointed tail, without a hint of kinks and other defects.
Signs of the oriental appearance of the oriental cat can be traced literally in everything: a beautiful wedge-shaped head, a thin neck, a long and even nose, large expressive ears, a strong chin, a sharp muzzle.
Pay attention to the eyes of the oriental cat. They have an almond shape, are located at a rather large distance from each other, inclined towards the nose. There is no strabismus in oriental cats.

The color of the oriental cat can only be of a uniform shade, without white spots and protruding hairs, as well as without a brindle pattern.
