No one can resist the charm and the even-temperment of British Shorthairs who are also affectionately called "Teddy Bears". The chubby-faced British Shorthair with its chipmunk cheeks and happy smile is famous as the "Cheshire Cat" in Alice in Wonderland. The British Shorthair is described as a semi-cobby, large cat with a sturdy torso, firm muscles and a substantial bone structure. The British Shorthair has a short, dense, plush coat, making you want to bury your hands in its luxurious pile. This shorthaired breed is a low maintenance cat. A weekly brushing to remove dirt and grit and maintain a lustrous coat is all that is needed.
The British Shorthair is a healthy cat breed which does not usually suffer from most of the genetic disorders present in the Feline world. The average life span is between 14 and 20 years. The biggest concern with "Brits" is their tendency to become overweight. These cats love food and with their sedentary ways can quickly gain weight. It is important to limit their treats and keep a careful eye on their portions and carlorie intake to make sure they do not become overweight. Their weight should come from their massive muscular bodies, not from an excess of food. They are a heavy, solid cat ranging from 9 to 18 pounds with males being heavier than females. Encouraging them to play burns carlories while toning their muscles. Teaser toys provide lots of gymnastic entertainment. Training your cat to fetch adds running to their day and chasing a laser light pen gives their muscles a work out.
This sturdy "Teddy Bear" with a happy smile and a plush, low maintance coat combined with a wonderful disposition makes them great family pets. They are known for their calm, easy going temperament towards children and all members of the family. They adapt well to apartment and indoor living and will be happy indoors provided they have adequate space for exercise. They are not hyperactive which means you will not find them performing acrobatics but they are playful and do occasionally have active moments. Brits can be allowed outdoors with supervision or into an enclosed, escape proof area.
They are affectionate and friendly cats who like to cuddle up next to their owners, enjoying attention in an undemanding manner. They become very bonded with their human family but can often be shy and reserved with strangers. Aren't we all? These cats do not enjoy being carried around or handled roughly. Actually, all cats need to be handled gently. They love to relax and snooze which makes them ideal companion cats for persons of all ages, including the elderly.
If you are looking for a healthy, low maintance, calm and easy going cat that can tolerate solitude, then the "Brit" is the ideal cat. They get along well with other cats and cat friendly dogs but are quite content with their own company. You can create an indoor adventure zone filled with toys, cat gyms and scratching posts to prevent boredom. Plush Palace British Shorthair Kittens will quitely amuse themselves in your absence and wait patiently for your return, always greeting you with a smile and lot of love and affection.

Bringing Home a New Kitten
With a little knowledge and preparation, bringing home a new Kitten can be a great experience. The most important thing to do, before taking home a new Kitten, is to prepare in advance. Like babies, Kittens are liable to get into all sorts of interesting situations. It is important to safeguard your home before your new Kitten arrives. Give away all poisonous plants. The Humane Society of the United States has an extensive list of these titled "Common Poisonous Plants" at www.hsus.org. Store cleaners and chemicals in a safe place. Put away breakable heirlooms. Secure blind cords out of reach to prevent strangling and pick up all small items that a Kitten might swallow. Electrical cords are another source of danger. Keep your Kitten away from extension cords. Inquisitive Kittens may chew cords or play with them. Keep the doors closed on your washer and dryer and always know where your Kitten is, before you turn your dryer on. Also, make sure you keep the toilet lids down. Candles are another common household danger to cats. Never leave a lit candle unattended. Heat sources such as fireplaces, wood burning stoves, kitchen stoves, and ovens are also dangerous to your cat. Kittens especially like to explore, and they will find hazards that you never even knew existed.
Before you bring your Kitten home, set up a "Safe Room" for the new arrival to call his own for a while. Your Kittens "Safe Room" is very important and will greatly help to ease the stress he might experience in his new environment. This gives him security, privacy and facilitates the settling process. Put everything the Kitten will need in this room. Let the Kitten explore his room on his own. He'll probably be a little on edge and may hide, or he might start exploring and sniffing right away. Be patient and give him plenty of time to adjust. Cats are by nature, very territorial, which means that having a place to call their own is very important to their emotional well-being. Your Kitten is already in a state of stress from being given up for adoption and separated from its litter mates. Being brought to a strange new home only increases that stress. Your goal is to help make your new Kitten feel comfortable and safe, as quickly as possible. You should spend as much time as possible in the "Safe Room" with your Kitten, but you should never try to force it out of hiding. The Kitten will let you know when it's ready to explore more of the house. Please do not feel it is cruel to confine your Kitten to a single room for a few days. It is actually a great kindness to allow your new Kitten to claim a small, new territory at its own pace and without competition. Some Kittens may hide under the bed for a few days; others will be ready to come out into the new house and go exploring after just one day. The important thing is to let the Kitten emerge whenever it feels ready.
On pick up day, you will be given information on how to slowly and safely introduce your new Kitten to other pets in your home. Before your new Kitten arrives, be sure your other pets are free of disease and current on their vaccinations.

Moving In Supplies
Your new Kitten will need some "moving in" supplies. It's a good idea
Kitten when you visit the veterinarian or travel, and can keep your curious Kitten out of trouble
when need be.
This can be elaborate or as simple as you want. When you arrive at home, show your Kitten its litter box.

They retain food odors and harbor harmful bacteria that can make your Kitten sick. Corelle Ware bowls
are nice bowls for cat food and water. They are light weight and do not break easily.
All Kittens scratch as part of their natural behavior. Whether homemade or purchased, give your new Kitten legitimate places to scratch in his new home. Your Kitten is using scratchers now, but being moved to a new environment may cause need for some additional training from you. You will be given information entitled
"How to train a Cat to scratch the scrathing post."
Although cats are clean animals and they bathe themselves daily, your Kitten will need some basic grooming assistance from you. Start a regular grooming regimen when you bring your new Kitten home. The earlier
you start grooming, the more readily he or she will adjust to it. You will be given information and techniques
to help you with the grooming of your new Plush Palace Kitten.
All Things Bright And Beautiful
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small,
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
Each little flower that opens,
Each little bird that sings,
He made their glowing colours,
He made their tiny wings.
The purple-headed mountain,
The river running by,
The sunset, and the morning
That brightens up the sky.
The cold wind in the winter,
The pleasant summer sun,
The ripe fruits in the garden,
He made them every one.
The tall trees in the greenwood,
The meadows where we play,
The rushes by the water,
We gather every day.
He gave us eyes to see them,
And lips that we might tell
How great is God Almighty,
Who has made all things well.
