The breed of oriental cats takes its official start in 1977, when it received its recognition in the United States. The nearest ancestors of the breed are Siamese cats, therefore in general these breeds have much in common, and not for nothing both breeds belong to the same group of Siamese-Oriental cats. A characteristic feature and distinctive feature of Siamese cats is their color color-point and blue eyes. While oriental cats have green eyes and different color variations.
On physical indicators, both breeds are almost identical: long body, paws and tail, elongated wedge-shaped head, large ears and short hair. 

Since Siamese and Oriental cats belong to the same group, it is permissible to mate representatives of both breeds. In the litter both oriental and Siamese cats can be born, even if two representatives of orientals or Siamese are mated.
By nature, this is one of the most energetic and temperamental cats. So be prepared for the fact that your kitten, and then an adult cat, will not always lie somewhere, creating a beautiful interior in your home. On the contrary, be prepared for constant "persecution" by your pet. Whichever household matters you do, escort and inspection from the caudate friend will be provided to you. Also the indomitable energy of the pet can be turned into games, both with man and with other pets, if they are in the house. At worst, there is a game with yourself. The latter, however, annoys the pet the fastest, so try to invent new toys for the kitten.
Oriental cats really need a man for a comfortable stay. Therefore, they need frequent attention and communication. If you are away for a long time and often absent at home, then you should pay attention to other breeds of cats, because without communication with a person your pet will suffer greatly. If your family has more than one person, then most likely the kitten will choose the closest and beloved friend. The rest of the family members, of course, will also love and obey, but will completely trust their leader. There is an opinion that cats (female) like men more, and vice versa, male more trust the female. Although this is not confirmed by any official research. In general, oriental males, like males of other breeds, trust people more than females, since the maternal instinct has a great influence on females, which requires constantly to be in good shape, to monitor changes in the surrounding space. In nature, this helps cats protect kittens. In general, therefore, it can be said that males are more accommodating in nature and more obedient than females. However, if you managed to earn the love of a female, you can consider yourself a cat-like God.
In the maintenance of a cat of this breed are rather unpretentious. Regularly it is only necessary to give the cats dry food and  to change the water twice a day, and also to change the filler in the tray according to the manufacturer's recommendations. For their own purity, animals usually watch well enough, so you will rarely need to wash a cat for life, if at all you'll ever have to do it. Rarely, as necessary, it will only be necessary to clean the ears of the animal. Since the cats of the Siamese-Oriental group have very short wool, the cleaning of the apartment from the wool will be required much less frequently than if the cats of the longhaired breed are kept.
Regular annual vaccination of the cat, as well as digestization, will protect the health of your animal from possible diseases.
We also recommend the castration of purchased kittens if you do not plan to breed cats. An uncastrated oriental will announce the apartment with sounds that are very far from the usual and sweet "meow". Males and females of this breed on ordinary days can express themselves on various occasions quite loud and unusual in comparison with other breeds. And during periods of sexual attraction, males and females can literally scream, issuing simply "inhuman" cries, from which may become uncomfortable not only to you, but also to your neighbors. In addition, if you do not have the opportunity to mate a cat, this can adversely affect its health. The optimal way out for a pet is in this case castration, which is usually recommended at the age of 6 to 12 months. More precise recommendations can be given to you by the veterinarian.
