| American Shorthairs are descended from British Shorthairs. The ancestors of American Shorthairs were carried on ships sailing from England to America for the purpose of killing mice. American Shorthairs come in dozens of different color combinations. American Shorthairs can be prone to congenital heart defects. Male American Shorthairs are usually 50-75% larger than females.
