Another name for this fine, silky coated breed is Tiffanie or Tiffany. The Asian Semi-Longhair was developed in the United Kingdom as a longhaired version of the Asian Shorthair during the 1980s. They are an active and curious bunch, who are attached to their owners. While they may get along with other animals, Asian Semi-Longhairs don’t necessarily get along with other cats due to their jealous nature. Asian Semi-longhairs expect lots of attention from their owners and don’t do well in small apartments.
