    British Shorthair Cats can make good pets in Maine if they match your IifestyIe. The British Shorthair is a slightly smaller cat than the American Shorthair. British Shorthairs are mellow, even-tempered cats ideally suited to indoor life. British Shorthairs are sociable but unobtrusive. This breed enjoys affection but may not like to be picked up. British Shorthairs are more trainable than some breeds of cats and can be taught to fetch and play tricks.

    British Shorthairs are descended from Roman cats crossed with native English wild cats. Modern British Shorthairs also contain some Persian strains, which have resulted in thicker coats. British Shorthairs became popular in Australia in the late sixties and seventies. British Shorthairs first competed in a cat show in 1871. British Shorthairs come in many different color combinations, perhaps the most famous being the British Blue.
