Ashera Breed Summary

Want to take your Ashera on a big walk? No problem! These great kitties are happy to be outdoors and can be taught to walk on a lead, which is a fur-bulous way to show off this exotic looking cat. This breed can form strong bonds with their people but are also comfortable being left alone in the house providing they have some toys and a scratching post to keep them occupied (unless you want your curtains to be climbed!). As the Ashera’s ancestors come from a hot climate, these cats appreciate a comforting heated blanket in the winter or something to snuggle up to so they can have a cosy snooze.
