British Shorthair Cats

British Shorthair Cats

In the 19th century, when it became fashionable to own a cat in England, felines from the far reaches of the British Empire and beyond were brought to England. Even Queen Victoria owned two Persians. Perhaps the arrival of these exotic breeds aroused a certain patriotism and encouraged the development of a truly British cat. The British Shorthair, oldest of the English breeds, is easygoing, untemperamental, and reserved, yet also extremely affectionate. These adaptable cats take children and other animals in stride.

The British Shorthair is most remarkable for its roundness: it has a large, round head; round, wide-set eyes and ears; and round paws. It is a solidly built, medium to large cat with a broad chest.

Weight: 9-12 lbs
