The British Shorthair cat is a laid-back cat. While she appreciates attention, she is not needy and despises being carried. However, she will follow you around the house out of curiosity. British Shorthairs adore cuddling up next to their owners on the couch, despite not being lap cats.
British Shorthairs tend to grow more sedentary as they mature, however males are frequently more boisterous than the restrained females. They get along well with polite, courteous kids and don’t mind canines that are cat-friendly.
British Shorthairs have large chests, robust legs, and an all-around round appearance. Their fur is short, dense, and fluffy. Although eye colour varies according to coat colour, British Blues often have gold eyes and those with point colouring typically have blue eyes. Golden to copper are some more eye hues.

Despite their coats having practically any hue and pattern imaginable, blue is the most common (gray). Sometimes these felines are referred to as British Blues.
In order to remove any loose hair that may come out throughout the spring and fall seasons, brush your British Shorthair often. In all other times of the year, brushing once a week is sufficient.
British Shorthairs are prone to gingivitis, hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and haemophilia B while being free of numerous hereditary disorders that affect other breeds. Due to this cat’s love of food and somewhat inactive lifestyle, obesity is another issue.
