Calm, loyal and good natured.
If you're looking for a low maintenance companion, the British Shorthair is the cat for you. This breed likes to keep a low profile and they are fiercely loyal pets that are sweet and affectionate but do not need constant attention. They can be left to play independently which makes them a great companion for single people.
They have a chunky build and are adored for their full cheeks and plush fur. Their short, dense coat needs little grooming which is one of the reasons they became so popular. A daily brushing is recommended during seasonal changes.
This easy going breed makes a very pleasant companion. They are loving and affectionate, very obedient and are easily trained.
Can Cats Find True Love? You’ll find that cats may not show it, but there’s a lot that they love. As cats are territorial, they appear to form relationships with other cats when they feel there is no competition over food or other resources.

Dear Dr Chris, I am writing to you and requesting your help on behalf of my girlfriend and I in regards to our 4 month old British shorthair kitten named Eugene, who in the last week has lost the use of his back legs. We have taken baby Eugene to our local VET clinic and a few advanced VET specialists in Melbourne and all are unsure of what the exact cause may be. Nearly all are saying that it could have been caused from trauma or possibly a bacterial or fungal infection in his spine which is causing him to lose the mobility and sensation in his hind legs. This issue is also causing Eugene to become constipated and is making it extremely difficult and painful for Eugene to use his kitty litter and it means that he requires Microlax to help with his bowel movements. As we have taken baby Eugene through various procedures of x-rays, urine samples and blood tests while being medicated with Clavulox, Metacam, KY Jelly and Microlax and although it seems evident that the issue is located in his lower spine, we have not yet come any closer to finding the exact cause of the problem and our greatest fear is that Eugene may be suffering from leukaemia. Tomorrow we will be taking Eugene for his first MRI scan in hopes of discovering exactly what the problem is and hopefully begin making the first real steps on the road to recovery. As this is an extremely scary and stressful time for all of us with the added expenses for Eugene's treatments I felt that I had to reach out for further advice or assistance in this unique case. I am not asking for a definitive diagnosis or any miracles but we will do anything to help our little kitten and at this stage any advice or recommendations would be greatly appreciated as the time has come that we are now very desperate. Thank You and Kindest Regards,Darcy, Mollie and Eugene.
So my small dog of about 8 years , keeps on attacking lizards, before she would only bark at them and get very close but recently she attacked one when we were at home,and recently we had found one dead in our backyard.How can I prevent and stop my dog from attaching and harming these reptiles such as blue tongues and other large lizards, as I am afraid of her harming more of them or trying to attack a snake.
I have a 12 year old male Russell Terrier x Bichon Frise, and when he sleeps, he will act out his dreams to the point of throwing himself off the couch and biting people near him in his sleep. He never used to do this and it is quite alarming as he could injur himself or others. When this happens he eventually wakes up and looks very disoriented and confused, not to mention he cannot get a restful sleep. This has been happening for the past 6-9 months. When he was younger, when he slept you would often see him move his paw or bark a little as he dreamt, but now he is full on throwing himself around the room whilst still in a dream-like state. Please help!
