This is a combined review between our current two shorthairs, and my previous experience with short hairs. Our current two shorthairs are said to be sisters, and from the same litter. They are both spayed, and quite healthy. The one thing about cats, especially these American Shorthairs, is that they have an amazingly diverse coat and peronality pool that they can draw from. Freyja is our tabby polydactyl, while Chloe is our black(chocolate?).
They have fairly opposite personalities, right down to which human they choose to cuddle with at night. One great aspect of our small pride. Is that they are protective of our kiddo, taking turns posting a watch and laying in her bed throughout the night. Chloe much prefers to sleep under covers, pressing her feet against us. Freyja will sleep in between us, or our legs.
Neither cat has had any major health issues, other than an initial worms issue. Just a week and a half of diatomaceous earth in their food and it was rectified. Previous ASH that I have had, all had strong health, even the dwarf one!
They like to play at all times, both by themselves, together, and with us. They especially love lasers, and krinkly balls. These current cats are exceptionally intelligent, in that they attempt to open doors, and gesture and voice towards were we store the laser pointers when they ways to us them.
Really, in short, these cats are very varied in every aspect, but they make great companions for all people! Of all ages and temperament. I tried to capture a photo of both cats, but they are camera shy for sure.
