Cats are popular pets, but with so many breeds to choose from, finding the one that is perfect for your home can be tough. You want a cat that is suitable for the environment you live in, the size of your home, and the people it will frequently interact with.
The American Shorthair is a cat breed that comes in different colour combinations. The cat is relatively affectionate and due to its short coat, you won't have to worry as much about shedding and grooming, compared to a longer-haired breed.
This cat breed does not have many health problems and can live for up to 20 years, making it an ideal long-term feline friend.
