Welcome to www.americanshorthair.com. The history of the American shorthair cat dates back to the time the Pilgrims settled in the New World. These settlers brought their cats with them and they adapted well to their new life and environment in America. The cats are medium to large in size. They are strong cats and they have very nice shorthair coats and can be found in a wide variety of colors. Our intent is to provide a quick and informative means of contacting American Shorthair cat breeders and finding related services in the geographic location you desire. Other breeds of cats may also be found on this website as well as cat products and catteries/real estate for sale. Scroll down to view.
