Photos and limited pedigree are available on my website - GigiSilverBrits.com. My small, home based cattery is a TICA registered cattery.

Until then, he will be loved and cherished in my home. All of my kittens come with a one year warranty that they are free from a congenital or hereditary disorder which adversely affects the health of the kitten.A $400 deposit will hold this pretty boy.

From Crazy to Dignified in a Matter of Seconds,
this Cheshire Cat Befriends Kids and Pets Alike

British Shorthair

The British Shorthair is a large, sturdy cat with typically thick blue-gray fur and an easy-going, yet dignified personality. Not generally playful or active, but very devoted and sweet-natured, the breed doesn't generally like to be picked up and carried. However, these cats are fairly tolerant of some physical interaction with children and also get along well with other pets.

History
Dating all the way back to Egyptian times, the British Shorthair is actually the standard British domestic cat with a pedigree. First established around first century A.D., the breed probably came to Great Britain with the Romans and then interbred with local European wildcats naturally. Also isolated naturally, they ultimately became large, sturdy cats with short, thick coats. Today's British Shorthair, in fact, is almost identical in appearance to its ancient predecessors.

The pedigreed version originated when selective breeding began in the 19th century, with an emphasis on what's now called the "British Blue," or the "English type," as compared to the more fine-boned "Russian type." Some say that artist and cat fancier Harrison Weir played a major role in the standardization. At any rate, the newly named British Shorthair was featured at the first cat show, which was organized by Weir in 1871, held at the Crystal Palace.

The breed began to fall out of favor in the 1890s when Persian and other imported long-haired breeds overtook its popularity. Breeding stock had become rare by the First World War, and as a result breeders began to mix Persian into the bloodline. Those genes ultimately produced the British Longhair, although at the time, those cats were placed into Persian breeding programs. At that time all with the "blue" color were judged together as variations on a single breed, the Blue Shorthair. Outcrossings with the Russian Blue were also common at that time.

After World War I ended, the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (of the United Kingdom) decided they would only accept third-generation Persian-British crosses. Because of that, true breeding stock was again short by World War II, and the Russian and Persian Blue were reintroduced into the breed. The French Chartreux, an ancient breed that is genetically unrelated but very similar in appearance to the British Blue, was introduced into the mix.

Once World War II was over, breeders began to establish the true original British Blue type, so that by the late 1970s, the British Shorthair was formally recognized both by America's Cat Fanciers' Association and The International Cat Association. According to the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy, as of 2013 the British Shorthair was again the most popular pedigreed cat in Great Britain.

Appearance
Compact but powerful, this sturdy, balanced puss is broadly built, with a wide chest, thick legs, medium blunt tipped tail, and a massive, rounded head with broad cheeks, a short muzzle (prominent jowls are usually present in adult males), and deep, copper-colored, orange eyes for the standard blue coat.

Slow to mature, this kitty will not fully physically develop until it is about three years of age. The breed has what's known as sexual dimorphism, which means that males and females are distinctly different in size as adults. Males will weigh between 9 and 17 pounds, and females will weigh between 7 and 12 pounds.

Although the British Shorthair is defined by its dense "blue" coat, with a subset of the breed known as the "British Blue," British Shorthairs can also have other coat colors and patterns. Fawn, cinnamon, gold, silver, cream, red, white, and black are all colors accepted in standards, whether tabby, colorpoint, bicolor, or shaded. The International Cat Association and the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy also accept chocolate and the dilute of that, lilac, which is not allowed in CFA standards. Colors and patterns also occur as tortoiseshell variants.

Temperament
Some have said that the Cheshire cat was based on a British Shorthair. You'll often think that your pet is smiling with that crazy grin so famous to the Alice in Wonderland story. Normally very quiet and dignified, this cat can have bursts of "kitty craziness" that are short-lived and very high energy – and then suddenly, you'll have your quiet, affectionate, dignified companion back. Children and many dogs love British Shorthairs, and this cat will usually tolerate such attention and even give it back as long as it's not too rough.

Undemanding and very calm, this kitty will be both happy-go-lucky and commanding at the same time. Females tend to be more serious than males, but either way, you'll have a devoted shadow. Interestingly, this cat is not a lap-sitter, nor does it like to be carried around. However, it will plop cozily next to you – or sit contentedly nearby. Not naturally active, the British Shorthair is not much of a jumper. This cat will adjust to periods alone but much prefers your company to solitude.

As calm and unassertive as the British Shorthair is, however, this cat is very smart. These kitties are not very physically active but love a good mental challenge. They can learn tricks easily and can entertain themselves endlessly with "puzzle toys," which involve the release of treats.

When you choose your kitten, make sure it has been raised in a home and handled often to ensure proper socialization and a good personality. If possible, meet one or both parents. If the parents have good temperaments, it's likely that their offspring will, too.

The British Shorthair can successfully spend its life indoors and never needs to go out.

Health
Long-lived and generally healthy, the British Shorthair is a resilient cat that will live on average 10 to 12 years. These cats can be prone to hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, which is a thickening of the heart muscle, and a hereditary bleeding disorder called hemophilia B. The hemophilia disorder can be screened out by your breeder; a test now identifies carriers or affected cats, although no one can provide such a guarantee for hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Avoid any breeder who tries to.

Grooming
Brush weekly to remove loose hair and distribute skin oil, more often in the fall and spring, when your cat will shed more heavily to prepare for new hair growth. If your pet is a Longhair, it will need to be combed daily to prevent tangles. Check ears for infection and clean with a gentle cleanser and cotton ball if necessary. Teeth brushing, too, should be a regular part of hygiene, with a vet-approved toothpaste, and trim nails when they need it as well.
