American shorthair is known to be easy-going, have good looks, sweet personality, affectionate with owners and social with strangers. This made me get one. It is a family pet. It gets along with children and other pets. Even though it is a social cat, it is independent and always aware of pests and insects inside the house.
These cats have solidly built, powerful, and muscular bodies with well-developed shoulders, chests, and hindquarters when they are mature.
Lendy (name of my male American shorthair) is 3years and weighs ten pounds and I take it for vaccinations and veterinary checkups every year. Its favorite game is rat-catching. It chases it and when caught turns it into a game.
It is an intelligent cat that gets curious to see things. It is interested in its surroundings and does this by sitting on the window perch and watch the birds and any other activities going on outside.
