I've grown up with cats my entire life and I've owned six in total so I'm quite the cat person. Most of them have been American short hairs besides a maine coon and tabby cat. My experience with this breed has been nothing but absolutely positive.

I've owned my youngest Reesh Zven since she was roughly a month old. She was from a litter that my friends outdoor cat had with another stray cat. I'm not entirely sure of the mix that she is besides the short hair but she's the same temperament as they usually are. She's very playful and she loves to be the center of attention, she will literally crawl on top of you if you're not petting her. She doesn't get along well with the big dogs but she isn't cold or aggressive to them and none of my other cats of this breed have ever been either.

She is intensely active though during the night and causing lots of trouble and being very vocal about it if she spots you wandering the house at night, but it's more endearing than obnoxious. All of my cats have always groomed themselves and since they're not long hairs they don't often need any combing or washing. They're very independent if need be but love to be around the people of the house.

I would definitely recommend this breed to anyone whose looking for a cat who is independent if left alone during work hours but still very loving and kind around humans and other pets.
