He is also a purr machine lapping up all the attention he can. Both boys love to run and play and sound like a herd of elephants running through the house.

The Ultimate British Shorthair Guide

About British Shorthair

This cat is aptly named, as it originates in Great Britain and boasts a short coat. It ranks among the oldest recognized breeds worldwide.

Lifespan

Lifespan

12 to 20 years

Weight

Weight

Males: Five to 20 nine kilograms Females: Three to six kilograms

Grooming

Grooming

The British Shorthair has moderate-to-high grooming needs, depending on the season. Weekly brushing is suggested to remove dead hair and skin cells. Daily brushing is advised when the cat’s coat is knotted, thickening, or thinning.

Origins

In the late 1800s, a professional cat breeder named Harrison Weir developed the British Shorthair by blending various felines. Through intensive breeding programs, he transformed this cat into a pedigreed breed, which gained immense popularity in Britain.

During World War I, many British Shorthairs perished. Nonetheless, they remained a top-ranked breed in Britain. Today, they are recognized by cat registries worldwide.

Key Characteristics Of British Shorthairs

Are British Shorthairs Family-Friendly?

With their easygoing and mellow nature, British Shorthairs make excellent family pets. They tend to bond well with both humans and other animals, especially when socialised early.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

British Shorthairs may suffer from:

Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy

Hyperthyroidism

Kidney issues

Cystitis

Heart disease

Nature / Temperament

Intelligent, gentle, playful, affectionate, and loyal

Suitable Environment

This breed isn’t picky about its living conditions as long as it receives interaction. However, keeping your cat indoors is recommended to shield it from diseases and danger.

Other Considerations

Like other felines, this breed enjoys having a cat post to play, sleep, and exercise on.

Support your cat’s back when picking it up, as improper handling can cause discomfort.

This cat is medium to large when fully grown, so purchasing at least two oversized litter boxes is suggested.

How can I take good care of my British Shorthair?

Nutrition

It is advised to feed your British Shorthair premium quality cat food that is high in protein and low in empty calories, fat, and vegetable ingredients. Focus wholly on giving it meats, and avoid feeding it dairy or grains. Wet cat food is preferred over dry food. Water is preferred over milk.

Despite its fairly large size and muscular build, this breed’s nutrition must be carefully controlled. This is because it is prone to becoming overweight, so it is recommended to measure its food portions and keep an eye on its eating habits.

Grooming

With its short and smooth coat, the British Shorthair requires weekly grooming. However, brush or comb its coat daily during shedding season.

This cat excels at self-cleaning, so baths are rarely necessary. Weekly nail trimming is recommended, and daily teeth brushing helps prevent periodontal disease.

Exercise

British Shorthair kittens are energetic, but they mellow by 12 months. A great way to exercise a kitten and keep it entertained is by providing toys.

Older cats remain playful but less active. Sometimes, they nap all day; other times, they climb structures.

These felines are prone to weight gain, so daily exercise is crucial. Provide your British Shorthair with playthings or a cat post, and let it play with balls, lasers, fishing wands, and other interactive toys.

Training

The British Shorthair is intelligent and quick to learn, making it a highly trainable breed. It can follow instructions well, so teaching new skills like using a litter box, begging for treats, and eating on its own is easy. Use a clicker for training. This breed’s independence can seem mischievous. Patience and avoiding punishments are advised.

This is basic information and should not be used to make adoption or purchasing decisions. Consult an expert for detailed breed care and requirements.

 

Most Asked British Shorthair Questions

This cat is medium to large in size and quite big-boned. It has strong jaws, a well-developed muzzle, a muscular neck, a broad chest, and thick legs. Eye colours are wide-ranging, including copper, blue, and gold.

Its coat is thick and becomes even thicker in the winter. It comes in a variety of colours such as brown, silver, black, blue, white, red, and cream. Patterns range from solid to shaded, and from bi-colour to tri-colour.

Compared with other felines, the British Shorthair is a moderate shedder. It sometimes, however, experiences shedding during the spring and fall seasons.

To ensure you bring home a healthy cat, it is recommended to buy from a responsible breeder. A British Shorthair for sale typically costs between AUD $2,000 and $5,000.
