Domestic Short Hair (DSH) – Hampton Park

Beautiful 4 year old ginger tabby cat looking for a new home - unfortunately he does not get along with his 10 month old baby sister or 9 year old fur brother any more. Archie still behaves like a kitten sometimes but is fully toilet trained, does not scratch furniture (just scratching poles) and loves to play. Would be well suited to a house with children over 5 years old - he seems to be afraid of babies, but has been around older children and loves them. Archie loves to be outdoors, if you have a secured patio and/or backyard, he will be very happy. He can come with bedding, food and a cat tree if required.

Kiara is a beautiful Ginger cat who is 2 years and 8 months old. She is a calm cat who enjoys lounging around and will comfort you when you need it. She makes a lovely pet for those who enjoy downtime and a peaceful environment. She is urgently looking for a new home to love and care for her as her owner has had to move countries quite suddenly.

Thelma would love the chance to stay with one of her “siblings” but would adjust to life as a solo cat with time. Thelma is very seldom engaged in any of the mischief taking place in the house and is quite content with human company, rather than other cats if they are being noisy.

She really needs to go with one of the other kittens, it can be any of the 8 but she will not do well on her own. She is a delicate little petal who likes things to be “just so” she will join in on the mischief and can definitely hold her own but prefers not to. Miley is not suitable for a home with children or other pets. Miley drops weight and condition very quickly when she is stressed. Miley can also not travel. It takes her several days to recover from any trip away from home regardless of the length. Miley has a much more rigid routine than the boys and she becomes clearly perturbed when her routine is thrown out of whack. Miley will be the most amazing, loving pet for the right person.

Socks is a rescue kitten from the Armadale Kennel Zone. He's been hand raised from about 3 weeks old in a home with other cats so he's very comfortable with chaos. He sleeps in our bed, he loves supervised time in the backyard and he's full of fun. To take Socks home you'll need to pre-buy his vet work through Hanly Vet it a vet closer to you. Alternatively we can get his vet work done for an additional $170. This includes de-sexing, microchipping, vaccination and a dose of Revolution.

The Ultimate Domestic Short Hair (DSH) Guide

About Domestic Short Hair (DSH)

The Domestic Shorthair is a catch-all category for any mixed-breed cat that doesn’t have a particular look. Despite their diverse appearances, many Domestic Shorthairs share common traits. They typically flaunt short, easy-to-care-for fur in a myriad of colours and patterns. Renowned for their affectionate, laid-back personalities, they make excellent companions for people of all ages.

Grooming

A Domestic Shorthair cat’s grooming needs are not as extensive as those of a long-haired cat breed. However, regular grooming is still important to keeping your house cat healthy and looking their best.

Origins

The term “domestic shorthair” (DSH) describes cats of mixed or unknown ancestry rather than a specific breed. As a pseudo-breed, Domestic Shorthairs in a particular region develop unique body shapes and sizes, though their colouring often reverts to a tabby pattern over generations. This pseudo-breed is also called a house cat or alley cat (for feral specimens).

Key Characteristics Of Domestic Short Hair (DSH)s

Are Domestic Short Hair (DSH)s Family-Friendly?

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Obesity

Diabetes

Heart Desease

Nature / Temperament

Social, Active, and Athletic

Suitable Environment

The ideal environment for a Domestic Shorthair is a clean, comfortable home with ample space to roam and explore. Most thrive in a loving home where they feel safe and secure. They relish plenty of windows and natural light, enjoying basking in the sun. A variety of hiding places, perches, and scratching posts enrich their environment.

Other Considerations

  • Domestic Shorthairs often sport muscular builds with rounded heads and paws.
  • They share distant relations with the American Shorthair and British Shorthair.
  • Known hunters, free-roaming Domestic Shorthairs can significantly impact local wildlife populations.

How can I take good care of my Domestic Short Hair (DSH)?

Nutrition

A Domestic Shorthair’s diet should brim with protein and fat, and be low in carbohydrates. As obligate carnivores, their bodies thrive on animal-based proteins, which provide essential nutrients like taurine, arginine, and vitamins A, B, and D. Fat fuels their energy needs and keeps their coat glossy.

When feeding dry food, monitor for dehydration and ensure they always have fresh, clean water. Consider a cat fountain if your cat prefers flowing water.

Grooming

Domestic Shorthairs demand minimal grooming. Weekly brushing suffices.

Exercise

A Domestic Shorthair, being medium-sized, needs moderate exercise. Provide opportunities to run, jump, and play to keep them healthy and fit. Create an indoor obstacle course with furniture or cat toys that encourage physical activity. Ensure they have plenty of climbing opportunities to stay active.

Training

Domestic Shorthairs don’t require special training, but all cats benefit from socialisation and basic training. Teach them to use a litter box, feel comfortable with handling and grooming, and learn basic commands like “sit” or “stay.”

This information is general and should not be used for adoption or purchasing decisions. Consult an expert for detailed care and requirements of the breed.

Most Asked Domestic Short Hair (DSH) Questions

The main difference between these two types of cats is their coat length. As their name suggests, Domestic Shorthair cats have shorter fur, while Domestic Long Hair cats have longer fur.

No. Due to the wide variety of Domestic Shorthair cat traits, one cannot definitively say that they are hypoallergenic. Individual cats may or may not produce less of the proteins that cause an allergic reaction.

Despite this not being a distinct breed, ethical treatment of the animals should still be paramount. The average cost of Domestic Shorthair kittens for sale will be between AUD $100 and $600.
