What is special about this breed?
The British Shorthair – a big, soft plush bear
In 1871, the “British Shorthair” was presented to the public for the first time in London at the Crystal Palace.
No other short hair breed has such a plush coat as the British Shorthair: It is particularly dense, incredibly fluffy and literally stands out from the body.
Her thick undercoat protects her even in bad weather. It was perfectly adapted to the environment in the British Isles, as it is well-known that it rains fairly frequently here; This is because here often different tempered air masses collide. Drizzle must not bother a cat in Great Britain – because you need a thick coat that protects against moisture.
Plus these beautiful, big eyes – a real beauty!
Not surprisingly, she now has so many fans around the world.
Are there any features that only the British Shorthair has?
But the fan base loves her not only because of her appearance but because of her character:
The British Shorthair is a calm, balanced-tempered representative who takes changes mostly calmly. It is therefore compatible with other animals – even with conspecifics.
The easiest way to be socialized at the same age, with siblings or cats of the same sex – so hangover and hangover or Katzin with Katzin – because they have similar needs in the same phases of life; and siblings from the same family know each other from an early age.
She also likes to play and play with “her” people!
A great family cat – also recommended for “cat beginners” who have not had so much experience.
Land under: Unlike many other breeds, a British Shorthair is fond of water!
You can also splash on the tap when there is no swimming pool nearby.
Worth knowing about attitude and care
Since the British Shorthair is so treatable, it is considered easy to maintain.
She feels just as at home in a “cat-friendly” apartment as she does when stalking.
So to speak, the perfect flat cat, which of course is still happy when she can get in the fresh air and has spout in the garden or on the balcony.
Like most cats, she is quite sociable and needs another cat by her side.
She is not a “lap cat” who constantly wants to be occupied by her people, but you should still allow enough time for them – even if there are conspecifics.
The plush bear has a lot of furs, but the grooming is manageable: brushing once or twice a week is usually enough; if the coat change is pending and a lot of undercoat says goodbye, you should, however, often resort to the brush.
