American Shorthair Kittens
Welcome to Milla’s Kats, home of the American Shorthair cat. We specialize in breeding quality 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 and place our kittens with health certificates and all their required vaccines.
The American Shorthair Cat is known for its 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, whose 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.
The most well-known American Shorthair color today is the silver tabby, 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 is a medium-sized cat, but she is a very powerful one. She is heavily muscled and has heavy boning. Her rounded, thick appearance makes you realize that she will be heavy when you pick her up.
The American Shorthair is a powerful cat. All components of this cat should be well developed. She has a broad chest, a muscular neck, strong jaws and a well-developed muzzle. Her legs are thick and strong. She looks like what she was originally meant to be, a 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.
