Ola is a 1yr old purebed Silver American Shorthair. We got her from a breeder who was retiring. She is a darling little girl. She gets along great with other cats.
The Cat Fanciers' Association (CFA) chose to officially recognize this lovely cat as one of its first five registered breeds in 1906.
Originally known as the Domestic Shorthair, the breed was renamed 'American Shorthair' in 1966 to better represent its 'All American' character and to differentiate it from any other shorthaired breed. The name 'American Shorthair' also reinforces the idea that our native North American shorthaired cat is distinctly different from what may be found in streets, neighborhoods and barnyards.
By chance, a non-pedigreed shorthaired cat (or 'Domestic Shorthair') might resemble an American Shorthair, just as another random-bred cat might look like a Siamese, Persian or Maine Coon. The difference, however, is that a pedigreed cat can consistently produce kittens of the same physical conformation, coat quality, and temperament, while a random-bred cat cannot. Years of selective breeding and the careful recording of many generations of cats guarantee that each litter of kittens will have specific qualities.
