American Shorthair Cat

My experience with the American Shorthair has been exceptionally good. They are friendly, playful, and affectionate. Food is their number one motivator, and toys come in a close second. Like most cats, they prefer a cardboard box over an expensive cat bed.

Pros:

- They come in a vast array of colors with different coat patterns
- With short hair, they shed less
- Playful and affectionate
- Intelligent
- Not very vocal

Cons:

- Some shedding, so they wouldn't be appropriate for someone with cat allergies
