Published on Oct 4, 2022

Pet Showcase – British Shorthair Cat

by ChubbyBuddy

25-27 Nov | Friday-Saturday | Full day

The British Shorthair is a big, calm cat – with some male British Shorthair weighing up to 7 to 10kg (females are usually slightly smaller). Come and visit these cats to appreciate the best hallmarks of the breed – round head, round cheeks, firm chin, medium-sized ears and large, round eyes in various colours, from the classic blue to other colours and patterns. Appreciate its easy-going personality and watch them get along with everyone, including kids and other animals living in the house. They are active without being destructive, tend to be quiet, and can live happily in houses of any size, including apartments.
