British Shorthair cats are docile, patient and sweet kitties who will make purrfect companions to a family with kids and

cat-friendly dogs. They are good-natured, highly intelligent and just a bit lazy.


British Shorthairs are playful, affectionate cats. They are fiercely loyal and a good companion for single people. Daily brushing of the British Shorthair is important, especially during seasonal changes when the coat is thickening or thinning.


British Shorthair cats are easy to train because they're intelligent and form close bonds with their owner. Training tends to be easy because these cats rarely destroy things out of boredom and usually don't develop any unwanted behaviors.

The British shorthair has a broad chest, muscular neck, strong jaws and a well developed muzzle. The legs are thick and strong. The breed looks like what they originally were, a cat to keep rodents out of the barn and the house. The coat of the British shorthair is thick and dense.

British Shorthairs form strong bonds with their pet parents. If kept outside, they aren't likely to roam far. They're suited to being kept as an indoor cat but make sure they have plenty of toys to keep them occupied.
