Will a British Shorthair be right for me?

The answer to the above question is a near certain yes if you are a typical cat lover. Of course, you have to like the appearance of this breed of cat and the appearance is quite particular as you can see from the photographs on this website - cobby and rounded.

A well socialized British Shorthair that is typical of the breed should get on well with other cats, dogs, children and you.

The British Shorthair likes to interact with their human companion. Like all socialised domestic cats, they enjoy being stroked and cuddled. They don't force themselves on people, however.

At around two years of age the Brit SH becomes less active. Although they can occupy themselves well, they like company. They should not ideally be left alone all day.

The British Shorthair is a cobby cat and less talkative than the slender oriental cats such as the Siamese.

Their voice can be quiet and on occasions completely silent. So it you like quiet, this could be the breed for you. Maybe the ideal human is a retired person!

That said, cats are individuals. They have characters so it is best to meet all potential companions before adopting. The cat will make the choice.
