British Shorthair's appeal as a purebred increased and decreased over the course of the 20th cent. Although it has gained dynamism again in the last twenty years. During the early British Shorthair era (shortly after World War I) they were paired with long-haired long-haired feline races from oversee.
In the 1940' s, during World War II, many races went into decay, and once again British Shorthair was paired with Persians to try to preserve the race. British longhair can be up to 18 pounds, although the female is usually slightly smaller than the male.
In exhibitions they like to be placed on the judge's carriage or the stage and are often called "four foot on the ground" by the growers. Of course, this kitten is as frisky as any kitten, but once they grow up, they can be quite settled and often like to take a nap instead of chasing a game.
