Short description

The Seychellois Shorthair needs a lot of attention and is very human-oriented. She can be very headstrong and is very demanding. At the same time she is also very sensitive. Therefore, this breed is not recommended for inexperienced families. Moreover, a second cat with a feisty and confidetn character would be advantageous. She can be a diva sometimes and only allows cuddles or playtime as long as she likes.

This information is indicative and adheres to the breed standard. Each animal is an individual and has a personal character, as well as its own needs. Thus, a breed is not a guarantee of certain behaviors, etc.
