British Shorthair

Body

The medium to large sized cat is muscular and cobby. Chest, shoulders and back 
are broad and massive. Legs are short and muscular; paws thick and round. 
The tail is medium long and thick with a rounded tip and reaches to the shoulders. 
The neck is short and strong.

Head

The head is rounded, massive, broad with a firm chin. The nose is short, broad and straight. 
The profile is curved (without any stop). Cheeks are full and pronounced. The large round 
whisker pads lend a distinct outline to the short muzzle.

Ears

The ears are medium in size, broad at the base, with slightly rounded tips. They are set wide apart.

Eyes

The eyes are large and round, set wide apart. Eye colour corresponds with coat colour.

Coat

The coat is short and very dense, not close lying. It stands away from the body like plush due

to the sufficient undercoat. The texture is not woolly, it is crisp.
