About the Oriental

Oriental cats don’t like to be ignored and prefer to be the centre of attention. As such, they can be very demanding of time and bond strongly with a single owner.

Oriental cats have a strong personality and are usually very vocal, often with a loud voice that they use to communicate with humans. They enjoy being with people and have a great need for human companionship.
