Quiet, sweet and adorable. Despite his short legs, he is very agile and able to jump.


Using a soft brush it would normally be necessary to brush it at least 3-4 times a week; during the moulting period it is recommended to brush it every day. For the cat's health it must be protected from sudden changes in temperature or extreme temperatures (either too hot or too cold).
