American-shorthair-cats-healthianaIf you want a family, playful cat who can easily accept other pets at the same house, you should think of American Shorthair cats! The American Shorthair is one of the favorite breeds for many as it is quite outgoing and easy to handle. The average size of adult cats is commonly reached by the age of 4 or 5 yrs, unlike most cat breeds known and others which fully grow up in their first year. The average weight of males may be 11-15 pounds, while a female cat can weight only 8-12 pounds.


The stunning fur coat of the American shorthair reminds us of the African cheetah. It has a lovely round face, stocky muscular body, and the fur coat has nearly 90 different patterns such as in American shorthair tabby, silver, solid black, plain white, bicolor, tortoiseshell and calico.

The American shorthairs are not very vocal cats. They have a low soft voice which they make while demanding food or expressing excitement. As being friendly and quiet cats, they love their owners and need their company as they tend to follow the owner from one room to another and sit on or near them.
