These cats are identified by a registration prefix.

A long-hair division for Exotics was created for scoring purposes only and national/regional points accumulated by longhair Exotics shown in Persian colour classes will count towards longhair Exotic breed and colour class wins, not towards Persian wins.
        The Exotic SH is part of the Persian Breed Group and can be bred with both the Persian and Himalayan with resulting kittens being registered as the breed they are within the breed group.
