The Classic

If you're looking for a classic cat that will be a gentle companion, a playmate for your children, and a full-fledged member of the family, be sure to check out the common favorite - the American Shorthair! This breed is most known for its longevity, robust health, good looks, sweet personality, and amiability with children, dogs, and other pets.

Like most cats, my cat Stokely was an excellent rat catcher, as American Shorthairs were bred for that back in the day. If you have a stray rat around the place, you can bet that your cat, if he's in a hunting mood, will have that pest out in no time :)

American Shorthairs are low-maintenance cats, and they are not only beautiful, but healthy, easygoing, and affectionate. They also have a lifespan up to fifteen years! Holy cats!

The classic American Shorthair is a great cat for any and all cat lovers, just like the Scottish Fold! :)
