Hearing Loss?Edit

The first statement purports that they have been known to cause hearing loss in owners...yet further down it states that they seldom meow. Without making noise, how can they possibly cause hearing loss? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:40, 2 December 2010 (UTC)

In this context, should persian be lowercase? Tuf-Kat

If 50% of a litter is likely to have a different coat than is desired, doesn't that mean that the "breed" doesn't breed true (all offsprings have the same characteristics)? And if it doesn't breed true, that would mean that it isn't a fully developed breed. [[User:Lachatdelarue|Lachatdelarue (talk)]] 15:23, 10 Sep 2004 (UTC)

just plain wrongEdit

the 50% statement is an error. Exotics breed true and have been accepted for showing in the US for quite a while. THey are far from the original cross. Pschemp 14:11, 27 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Thanks for the correct info, I was wondering about that. [[User:Lachatdelarue|Lachatdelarue (talk)]] 14:26, 27 Sep 2004 (UTC)

Breeding True

Unless a homozygous shorthair is bred to a homozygous shorthair, there is an even greater possibility than 50% of having longhair kittens in a litter. Sometimes all of the kittens can be longhair. --Stacyrp 15:57, 28 July 2006 (UTC)stacyrp

And most exotics now bred are homozygous shorthair. In fact, longhairs are not allowed into the breed as outcrosses anymore. pschemp | talk 03:10, 30 July 2006 (UTC)

Depends on the AssociationEdit

In The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA), longhairs and Persians are acceptable outcrosses. In The International Cat Association (TICA) they are not. I don't know about smaller US and foreign associations. No matter the quality of the breeding stock, one always has to go back to the Persian to preserve type.

Gafield not an ExoticEdit

I have removed Garfield from the section of film appearance(s) because Garfield is computer animated in the movie, and his breed has never been specified. --Pharaoh Hound (talk) 12:35, 2 October 2006 (UTC)

Breed Standards Links DeadEdit

As the title says. All except the TICA links are dead and the TICA link links to the Havana instead of the Exotic. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 08:06, 10 January 2014 (UTC)
