The British tolerates being left alone. She is affectionate but also spends time just sleeping in the sun. The British is an easy cat to care for and makes a wonderful, quiet companion.
In the (CFA), some of the offspring from Oriental Shorthair parents are considered "any other variety" (AOV), but depending on the pedigree, some may compete as Colorpoints. In (TICA) and many other associations, these cats are considered to be, and compete as, Siamese, when recognized at all.
The third use for cat is file creation. For small files this is often easier than using , or other text editors. It is accomplished by typing followed by the output redirection operator and the name of the file to be created, then pressing ENTER and finally simultaneously pressing the CONTROL and keys. For example, a new file named can be created by typing There is no effect on the contents of file1. (The same thing can, of course, be accomplished just as easily using command, which is used to copy files, i.e., , but the above example does illustrate the great versatility of cat.) cat can also be used to simultaneously create a new file and transfer to it the data from an existing file. This is accomplished by typing , the name of the file from which the output will come, the output redirection operator and the name of the file to be created. Then pressing ENTER causes the new file to be created and written to. For example, typing the following and then pressing ENTER creates a new file named that contains a copy of the contents of :Most breeders recommend a high-quality dry food. Care must betaken to not allow your British Shorthair to get fat, or its life spanwill be shortened. Middle-aged cats (5-10) are most likely to haveweight problems which can usually be controlled by switching to alow-calorie food. Feed controlled portions once or twice a day; ifyour cat seems to be overly heavy, ask your vet for more specific advice.Harrison Weir, father of all cat shows, was a great admirer ofthese cats. "The ordinary garden cat," he wrote, "hassurvived every kind of hardship. That he exists at all, is a tributeto his strength of character and endurance." Mr. Weir's devotionto the shorthaired British cats was shared by Mr. Jung, who was tobecome one of the first cat show judges. He believed if thesebeautiful cats were thoughtfully bred, a race of cats witharistocratic pedigrees and the same inherent goodness and qualitywould be developed. The breed produced was named the BritishShorthair and were the only cats to be shown as pedigreed at the firstcat shows. All others were simply shown as longhair or shorthair,divided by their various colors."Are they all gray?"
No, though the majority of the British Shorthairs bred inthe US are gray. Gray is what we call blue. Half of all BritishShorthairs bred in CFA (The Cat Fanciers Association) areblues.In the British Shorthair, the most common inherited health problemsare gingivitis (red inflamed gums), which will cause an affected catto require careful dental care, and cardiomyopathy, which can causeanything from a minor heart murmur to severe heart trouble. Again,neither of these problems is specific to the breed."My cat is such-and-such a color -- is he/she part BritishShorthair?"
Probably not. Since British Shorthairs are fairly rarein the US, a rogue British wondering around the streets of suburbia isnot likely. However, the breed was developed as a shorthaired streettype cat and still has much of those characteristics in today's showcat. So while your kitty is probably not part British Shorthair, thesimilarities you may see come from the moggies of England found behindour competition British Shorthairs today.
