The loving and gentle British Shorthair cat is one of the most easygoing and laid-back cat breeds you'll find. Though large and sturdy, these cats would rather spend some quiet time perched in a cat tree than cause a ruckus.

These cats are not typically rambunctious, loud, and overly active. Instead of knocking glasses off your table, they would rather observe their families and surroundings. 

If you are looking for a cat that is low-key and relaxed, that likes to play but doesn't need to be running amuck through the house, then the British Shorthair is perfect for you.

Being able to match your personality with a breed of cat can help to ensure you get the perfect fit for your needs. Just as you want a cat that complements your temperament, cats also expect certain behavior and treatment from their humans, and the British Shorthair is no exception.

The British Shorthair cat might not open up to you upon your first encounter, but with patience and dedication, you’ll soon find your new furry best friend.
