An American Short hair cat is a great pet to own. I received my cat, Pumpkin, from a friend about five years ago and she has been a great little companion. She is an indoor outdoor cat and she comes and goes and she pleases. I have had other cats of this breed in the past and they all were wonderful. When I first got her my mom had a small dog and she grew up with the dog and they became best friends. When she had her first litter she let the dog in with her and her kittens. These cats are pretty low maintenance besides buying flea medicine, I recommend Advantage. Advantage is the only brand that really seems to do the job, in my opinion. Over all I have enjoyed every short hair cat I have ever owned and I would recommend one as a pet.
