The British Shorthair is one of the most popular cat breeds in the world. In Australia alone, the average monthly search for a British Shorthair for sale from December 2020 to November 2021 was 1,600, according to Google Australia KW Planner.

This is because it is affectionate and loyal – two traits that are not typical of most felines. It is also attractive – given its big eyes, chubby cheeks, and rounded body.

If you are considering welcoming a British Shorthair into your home, get ready to be amazed by the wide variety of coloured cats you will have to choose from. To make the selection process much easier for you, below is a list of the most popular British Shorthair colours in Australia today.

Top-Ranked British Shorthair Colours

Another coloured feline that is not easy to find is the Cinnamon British Shorthair. It has a light brown colour with a bronze or copper undertone.

Also known as the Red British Shorthair, the Ginger British Shorthair rarely has a solid colour. Rather, it has an uneven distribution of red hues.

As its name suggests, the Chocolate British Shorthair has a brown or chestnut coat. It can either be light or dark in colour.

While it exists, a Black British Shorthair can be difficult to find. This is because puppies born with a solid black coat tend to lighten in colour as it ages.

Unlike what many may think, a Cream British Shorthair isn’t exactly cream in colour. Rather, it is light red or orange with visible tabby markings.

The coat colour of the Lilac British Shorthair is interesting because it is a combination of blue, grey, and pink. This cat’s eyes are either amber or copper-orange.

The Golden British Shorthair is quite rare. If you get lucky enough to find one, it won’t exactly be gold. Instead, it will have a cream undercoat with an evenly distributed mantle of dark brown or black tipping.

The most popular British Shorthair colour is British Blue. It is not really blue in colour, but grey. However, its muzzle and pads are, indeed, blue.
