This breed is very close in relation to the Siamese. They have a very similar build with the exception of their almond eyes, triangle-shaped head, and large ears. Orientals are very social cats and are extremely graceful thanks to their slender and muscular form. They tend to remain playful well into their adult years and are known for their leaping abilities. They usually have green eyes and they originate in Thailand. They can come in many colors and patterns with all of the variations being accepted. An Oriental Shorthair kitten will cost between $200-650.
