This sleek, sly breed enchants its owners with graceful motion, bold intelligence, and playful curiosity toward everything in their world (your house). They are a close relative of the Siamese, as evidenced by angular faces, almond-shaped (usually green) eyes, and long, slender bodies. Orientals, however, come in nearly endless color variations and patterns, as well several coat lengths. They were, in fact, developed in the United States as a way to explore possible coat colors. Their ease of maintenance, entertaining personalities, and rainbow of coat colors to choose from make them popular pets.
