The Asian cat is a medium-sized cat with a well-muscled, lean body. Much like the Burmese breed, it is described as a shorthaired cat with a glossy coat. Its head is round with medium to large ears that are set wide apart. As the Asian kittens are still growing, they usually have ears that look too big for their bodies. Overall, the ears should appear tilting slightly forward.
Its eyes are also set widely apart and appear large and lustrous. The accepted eye colour depends on the variety but could be anywhere from yellow to green.
Further, coats and its colours vary in each type. The Asian Shorthair has a short coat and the Asian Semi-longhair, like the Tiffanie, has a medium length but without a woolly coat. Both lengths look fine and silky. Its coat colours can be apricot, black, blue, blue tortie, caramel, caramel tortie, chocolate, chocolate tortie, cinnamon, cinnamon tortie, cream, fawn, fawn tortie, lilac, lilac tortie, or red.
The Asian cats require less grooming because of their short coats. Once-a-week brushing will suffice. On the other hand, for the semi-longhair Tiffanies, you need to give a bit more attention. The grooming routine must include nail trimming, teeth brushing, and ear cleaning.
