American Shorthair Kittens
Welcome to Milla’s Kats, home of the American Shorthair cat. We specialize in breeding quality American Shorthair kittens from pedigreed CFA (Cat Fanciers’ Association) and TICA (The International Cat Association) registered parents.
We are American Shorthair Breeders based in Southern California. We place our kittens with a solid two-year heath guarantee. Our kittens are well socialized and will have all required vaccines before leaving for their forever homes.
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.
American Shorthair Kittens
Are a medium-sized cat, but it’s a very powerful one. It is heavily muscled and has heavy boning. Its rounded, thick appearance makes you realize that it will be heavy when you pick him/her up.
They are known by a number of names such as the American Shorthair Silver Classic Tabby, Classic Tabby, Silver Classic Tabby, among others.
American Shorthair Breeders focus 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.
The coat of the American Shorthair is thick and dense. The coat becomes much longer and thicker during the winter. The texture of the coat is relatively hard as it is meant as protection for her.
It’s no wonder that the American Shorthair consistently ranks as one of the ten most popular breeds of cat, truly a star in the feline world.
