The British Shorthair breed is one of the largest breeds of cats in the world, and probably the oldest breed of British feline. The ancestors of this cat date back to the time of the Romans in England who imported them from their native Rome. This breed was highly prized for its sheer strength, endurance and highly successful hunting skills. Equally important is the tranquil temperament and loyalty to humans which are an intrinsic part of this breed’s character.
