Sophi - Therapy Cat

Sophi is a Silver-Shaded Exotic Shorthair. Exotic Shorthairs are a cross between Persians and Domestic Shorthairs. They have the sweet disposition and chunky body shape of the Persians. The Domestic Shorthair contribution includes better health, shorter hair and a little bit more active lifestyle. Due to their shorter hair, they are sometimes called "the lazy man's Persian" because they don't require as much grooming. Sophi started coming to the Phoenix office in February, 2012.
