We had wanted a second cat as a companion for our first, and we were so lucky to find our British shorthair, with tuxedo patterning, at the local adoption agency. Our little tuxedo is the sweetest animal I have ever known—gentle, affectionate, and always (always!) wanting to be with his humans, particularly when he was very little. The personality type shared with us by the agency was “personal assistant,” and that’s just right. Our British shorthair is very calm and happy to sleep for a good 18 hours each day, but when he’s awake, he very much wants to be cuddling with his humans. I’ve also never heard a cat “talk” quite so much. He’s the loveliest breed and perfect for any family, particularly one with children.
