American Shorthair cats are hardy and playful cats. They are a good pet for a busy household. They are typically compatible with kids and dogs, although this varies between individual cats. The only downside is that they need their claws trimmed regularly and can sometimes be prone to scratching furniture and other household items. They do not need to be groomed regularly, although the occasional brushing is helpful.
