As the name implies, the British Shorthair has become native-like to Great Britain, even though the breed’s exact origin remains unknown. There have been speculations that the British Shorthair descended from Egyptian domesticated cats, but the only thing we know for sure is that the bulky breed is, in fact, one of the oldest cat breeds in existence.

Personality:

The most fascinating characteristic of the British Shorthair is that the breed has accepted British etiquette in that they are reserved little creatures who like to keep to themselves. They are also charmingly undemanding and composed, especially when they still haven’t had the chance to really get to know their humans.

However, once they overcome their reserve, the British Shorthair will prove to be a delightful companion and faithful friend to everyone in the household. Despite the fact that they form strong bonds with their humans, these cats do not require your constant attention and will leave you be until you have the time to cuddle and play with them.
