Short hair and lean cats are usually very active.
Long hair cats are more likely to be more laid back, just not is active.
When you have a cat that is food obsessed, provide food if you can, more times a day or you can use a time feeder to make it possible for the cat to have 4 to 5 meals a day. Move the time feeder around the house so the cat has to look for it so the cat is getting some exercise. Leave treats in different places like the window seal, stairway or other high places. It's a good exercise for their body and mind this is good for when you are not home. Also, if there is not a enough to do the cat might be bored. You can buy some track toys and hang them from walls, doorknobs. Track toys that move back and forth so the cat can interact with the toy and you don't need to personally be there. Another stress buster for cats is catnip. Cats are social animals so it is better to have more than one. Read children's books with a shy cat. The cats like the way we read when our voice is soft and when our voices rises. They apparently happen to like that.
