Medium-long hair cat breeds
Medium-long hair cat breeds have a wonderful balance between longhair and shorthair coats. They sport a plush coat with shorter hairs that aid with grooming.
A number of cat breeds fall within this medium-long category. Short-haired varieties of the same breed may even be accepted by some breed standards.
It is important to select an appropriate diet for your medium-long hair breed. This will help to prevent hair loss, including unwanted hairballs. Access to catnip or grass/cat grass is recommended to aid with hairball regulation.
As with longhair cats, medium-long hair breeds molt, particularly according to the seasons. This means they will require regular grooming. This is a characteristic to consider when deciding on the type of breed ideal to your lifestyle.
Medium-long hair cat breeds include the Maine Coon, American Curl, Burmese, Norwegian Forect, Siberian, Chantilly-Tiffany, Ragdoll, Turkish Angora, Somali, and Balinese, among others.
