A detailed introduction to American short haired cats

       Historically, the ancestors of American Bobcat originally lived in Europe, and then followed the early pioneers into North America. Records show that several cats were raised on the May flower, whose job is to catch rats on board that steal food and spread germs. After constant breeding, the Native American short haired cat was finally established. At the beginning of the 20th century, due to the introduction of some foreign breeds of cats to the United States, the native blood of American short haired cats began to be weakened. The kittens born after mating with long haired cats and Siamese cats had a variety of different lengths of fur, body shape, color and temperament. The early breeders succeeded in obtaining perfect markings, colors, and strong forms, beautiful faces and lovely characters. In the breeding history of American short haired cat, this cat species was registered as “short haired cat” at first, and then changed to “short hair domestic cat”. It was not until 1966 that the name of “American short haired cat” appeared. This cat species is also one of the first five breeds certified by CFA when it was initially certified. To this day, the American short haired cat has been one of the top ten popular cat breeds. The so-called “American short haired cat” is different from that in the United States, both in blood and appearance. Or some native cats in the United States may at first glance feel like the orthodox “American short haired cat”, but the real purebred cats should be able to maintain the same appearance, coat color and personality when breeding the next generation of kittens.
