Best loved of the British Shorthair breeds, the British Blue is strikingly beautiful with its smooth, silky, blue-coloured, dense coat and its glowing amber eyes. They are solidly built with muscular legs and large rounded paws. British shorthair breeds are most people's idea of the classic cat shape with their smooth, compact and rounded outline.

The British Shorthair was refined as a recognised breed at the close of the 19th century, having originated as a 'street car'. Breeders admired their intelligence and health and began to breed 'the best'. The breed is a skilled mouser and can adapt to virtually all situations although they appear to be happiest outdoors. They make excellent family pets as they are intelligent, affectionate, calm and easy to look after.

The British Blue Crown portrays the regular feature of the Manx Kitten standing on a block.
