It feels very good, like thick carpet hair. Moreover, the blue cat is the oldest species in the British short, so their limbs are the most developed among all the British short, and the face is particularly round. Many people say that the blue cat is actually the blue variety of British short, but in fact, the British short blue cat is just a representative cat of the British short family.

       Blue and white

       On the basis of the British short blue cat, there is a short blue white coat color. The blue and white in the English short is basically a mixture of light blue and white. Compared with the Blue English short, the blue and white have a more sweet feeling and look more gentle and lovely. In short, a lot of white hair is added to the British short and blue cats. Of course, the English short blue and white with regular eight character symmetry is the most beautiful. British short blue and white look more delicate, although not as powerful as pure blue cat, but added a bit of sweetness, still pleasing.

       Milk color

There is a striking feature in the gradual color of the English, with a black line on the tail, which is very beautiful, like an eyeliner. Silver gradients have been very popular in China in recent years, with almost white hair all over the body and only a layer of gray at the tip. It’s very similar to Chinese ink and wash painting. It looks noble. In addition to the blue cat, the silver gradients are the most numerous species in the British short family, while the golden gradients are the minority cats with a relatively small number.

       4. Three colors: three flowers are blue, cream and white. Sanhua can only appear in female cats, so if it is short, the muscles will not be as developed as male cats. But a lot of the match grade English short will breed three kinds of colors.

       5. Blue and milk two colors: blue and yellow because of the lack of white, so the whole cat will not look very refreshing. So most people don’t choose this kind of color when they raise them at home, but in fact, like Sanhua, it is a special color of breeding grade.

       The difference between British and American short

       1. Different places of origin

       British short and American short can be understood as British short hair cat and American short hair cat. Therefore, even according to the name, the origin is relatively obvious.

       2. The distinction of coat color

       There are more than 80 kinds of colors recognized by CFA, while only 15 kinds of English short colors are recognized by CFA. The most common colors in the market are Silver Tiger spot, beautiful short and blue British short. If we compare the two colors of cats, it will be clear at a glance, and it is very easy to distinguish. Therefore, there will be a saying of “British short blue cat and American short tiger spot”.

       But if compared with cats of other colors, it is not so easy to distinguish, and it will be very similar. For example, in our impression, British short should be solid color or two-color, but in fact, British short also has tiger spot color. From the perspective of fur color alone, it is very similar to American short, which makes it more difficult to distinguish.

       3. Facial discrimination

       Although both British short and American short belong to medium-sized cats, they are relatively rounder, with larger and rounder faces, stronger limbs and shorter necks, which give people a feeling of being a little fat. However, Meijian is relatively thinner and has a sharp chin. The length of the head is slightly longer than the width. Although the body development is not as strong as yingshort, it is better than that of yingshort English is shorter and longer.
