Oriental Shorthair is the serval of the domestic cat world

This photograph of an Oriental Shorthair cat tells me that this breed is the serval of the domestic cat world. What I mean is that proportional to the rest of the body both the serval and the Oriental SH have the longest legs.

Oriental SH has the longest legs of all the domestic cats. Don’t you think?

The serval is known for long legs, the longest as mentioned compared to overall size. I have never seen a domestic cat with such long, giraffe-like legs as this cat’s.

Serval Description

The Oriental SH is bred to be what cat breeders consider to be ‘elegant’ but which I would describe as extremely skinny and unnatural. I guess it is a matter of taste. There is no accounting for people’s tastes.

But it is unnatural.

Hi, I am 70-years-of-age at 2019. For 14 years before I retired at 57, I worked as a solicitor in general law specialising in family law. Before that I worked in a number of different jobs including professional photography. I have a longstanding girlfriend, Michelle. We like to walk in Richmond Park which is near my home because I love nature and the landscape (as well as cats and all animals).
