The British Shorthair cat is one of the most well-known breeds from the UK, but has become popular all over the world. It is also the oldest of the British breeds. If you have a British Shorthair cat already or are considering adopting one into your family, you will need to ensure you know everything you can about them.
Fellow cat lovers just of aware of this, since even the OP never brought it up. Feline infectious peritonitis or (FIP) is high risk in British short hair cats. Google it and you find a world of information on it but its deadly to any cat that gets it. Unfortunately for me I found out the hard way, I ended up getting a 4 month old British short hair kitten and 85 days later I had to put him to sleep due to FIP.
