What are American Shorthair Cats like?

American Shorthairs were bred for rodent-hunting, equipping them with an endurance that makes them well-suited to play and adaptable to other pets. They’re very accepting, making them a good choice for families with young children or seniors looking for a mellow companion. That being said, American Shorthairs don’t usually like being picked up and may prefer to sit next to you than on your lap.

Weighing up to 15 pounds and up to 15 inches in length, they are compact and stocky cats. As indicated by their name, they have short, thick hair. Their fur can vary in color but they’re known for silver coats with black, classic ticking. Registered American Shorthair breeders will have kittens for sale with black, silver, white, gray, brown, cream, red and many other fur variations.
