Information about exotic shorthair cats
January 1, 2012 2:51 AM Subscribe
I want to learn everything I can about exotic shorthairs (aka shorthaired persians). I have the opportunity to adopt an exotic shorthair kitten, and need to figure out if one of the little munchkins would be happy living with me. I have 3 specific questions.

(1) Googling seems to bring up mostly advertisements and super basic fact sheets. Are there any clubs or dedicated websites with in-depth information on this breed? Are there good books?
(2) We live in a tiny apartment (40 sq. m). I understand exotics are a good apartment cat. But a concern in this regard is how to keep kitty litter from stinking up the house. Any anecdotes / advice / Ikea hacks?
(3) Do exotics require constant company? I will give my future kitty oodles of attention when I am home. I am a homebody and love staying in; however, I am a student, and work 2 shifts a week at my P/T job, so I wouldn't be home all the time. But I would be home quite a lot. My boyfriend works Mon-Fri 9-5.
