The British Short Hair cats are very popular, not only in Malta but also worldwide. This is one of the most popular breed due to their cuteness (round physical elements) along with their amazing character and temper.

British Short Hair Environment

As any other pets, it is very imporant that before you get one, you make sure you have the right environment and commited to give the kitten a loving happy life. As any other cat, the British Short Hair needs to play, cuddle, and eat healthy food in order to live a healthy happy life.

Before you get your British Short Hair kitten, make sure you prepare a loving environment, which includes a clean, safe place for your cat. You should also get a scratch pole, (preferably a tall one as these cats like to sit high!) and some other toys to keep your kitten fit and active.

British Short Hair Temper

British Short Hair’s are very calm cats. In fact, they are one of the most ideal cats if you have young children in your house due to their calmness. They can also be very loving and altough they do not always love to be picked up, they love to cuddle. If you want proof how loving this breed can be, watch this very short video below (WARNING – you could suffer from heart melting from wathcing this <3).

British Short Hair Colours

There are various BSH colours, perhaps the more common one is the ‘British Blue’ (bluish grey). There are also the Black, white, red, cream, silver, golden, cinnamon and fawn are accepted by all official standards. The Governing Council of the Cat Fancy (GCCF), Fédération Internationale Féline (FIFe) and The International Cat Association (TICA) also accept chocolate and its dilute lilac. However one of the most beautiful ones, in our opinion, is the golden colour.

British Short Hair Kittens

British short hair kittens are very adorable. Although potential owners might be impatient to get their new fur baby, its very important that the kittens spend the right amount of time with their mom, in order to grow up healthy and learn ‘house rules’. Keeping the kittens with their mother is also important for the cat, the mother will automatically start ‘abondaning’ its kittens as they grow older, if you seperate her from her kittens before, she might get depressed and can effect her health negatively. Usually it is recommended that the kittens stay with their mother for up to 12 weeks.
