American Shorthair Kittens are known for their longevity, robust health, good looks, quiet disposition and amiability with children and dogs. The American Shorthair, also known as ASH, is America’s own breed. Its ancestors came to North America with early settlers from Europe. Records indicate that the “Mayflower” carried several cats to hunt ship’s rats. For centuries, “working cats” flourished along with their pioneer owners and eventually established themselves as the native North American short haired cat.

American Shorthair Breeders consider the silver tabby as the most well-known color today, with dense black markings set on a sterling silver background. You probably have seen an example of this striking variety in television and magazine advertising or in recent movie roles.

The American Shorthair Silver Tabby is the most popular color with the Brown Tabby and Silver Tabby and White as a close second. There are over 210 color variations to choose from so finding the best color to match your style will not be difficult.

They are known by a number of names such as the American Shorthair Silver Classic Tabby, Classic Tabby, Silver Classic Tabby, among others.

An American Shorthair Cat Breeder focuses on breeding a cat that is powerful and well structured. All components of this cat should be well developed. With a broad chest, a muscular neck, strong jaws and a well-developed muzzle, the American Shorthair is one of the most powerful cats of the domestic feline world. Its legs are thick and strong, with well-developed hindquarters. It looks like what it was originally meant to be, a powerful cat to keep rodents out of the barn and the house.
