About the British shorthair

British Shorthairs are intelligent, affectionate and without a temperamental side. They are tolerant of children and dogs, making them excellent family cats.

While they like to be around their owners, they prefer to keep their feet on the ground and will not be comfortable when carried around. They are quite content with their own company, and able to amuse themselves if they are left alone in the home.
