What You Need to Know

History
 

The British Shorthair lines begin with cats imported from Egypt that accompanied the Romans when they invaded Great Britain. One of the first breeds of the cat fancy, they have changed little over the centuries. The British Shorthair cat is known for its distinctive body, dense coat, round head, and prominent whisker pads. The British Longhair takes all the traits for the British Shorthair and adds a longer coat, resulting in an imposing longhaired cat with all the same characteristics that have made the British Shorthair such a loyal companion.

Care Of Your British
 

The British Shorthair/Longhair cats average life expectancy of 14 years, so ownership is a long-term commitment. They require very little maintenance, but it's a good idea to brush your cat a few times a week to help keep loose hair at a minimum. As a general rule, they are quiet and reserved. Although they like to sit close to you, they don't like to be held. British are not overly active, so it's important that you give your cat a proper diet to promote a healthy weight.
