the british shorthair
   The British Shorthair, probably the oldest English breed of cat, was first introduced to Britain by the ancient Romans. The British Shorthair is a sturdy, no-nonsense cat and quickly made itself useful as a working household animal, valued for its physical strength and hunting ability. But it wasn’t long before the British Shorthair became equally prized for its loyalty, sweetness and easygoing nature.
In 1871, the British Shorthair was shown as the first English breed in the first Crystal Palace cat show. Known at first as the ‘British Blue’ due to the breed’s original color, this popular cat became available in a wide variety of colors under the name British Shorthair by the 1950’s.
