British Shorthair personality
The British Shorthair was once known as the British Blue due to the fact that they only came in that colour. These days, the British Shorthair coat comes in a variety of colours and patterns, as well as a long haired breed, the British Longhair.
The British Shorthair cat is an intelligent, affectionate breed with a plush coat, sturdy body and rounded paws and generally loves a lot of attention. Known for being pretty laidback, their dignified demeanour will mean they won't like being carried around and instead will prefer to curl up next to you rather than on your lap.
Did you know the Cheshire cat from Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland is based on the British Shorthair?
