ABOUT THE IMAGE AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE

The American Shorthair (ASH) was originally a working cat used to control the rodent population in early 20th century America. ASHs were bred to be hardy, healthy and strong to be able to fulfill their jobs. Since most of them lived outdoors, the coat was cultivated to be thick to repel the elements and keep the cat warm.
