The British Shorthair cat tends to be calm and not too lively. She has a short and dense coat that is crisp to the touch. It is characterized by a lot of undercoat, so that it springs up easily.

British Shorthair cats are muscular and powerfully built, their legs are short and stocky, their paws are large and rounded, and their tails are slightly shorter than other breeds. Everything about her is round: the broad chest, the head, the wide, short ears and the large, expressive eyes. BKH cats develop rather slowly. Full size is not reached until two years of age and older. A normally developed tomcat weighs between 7 and 8 kg, cats between 4 and 6 kg.

In contrast to many other cat breeds, the typical BKH is not usually afraid of water.

The characteristic color of the eyes is orange or copper, mostly green in the silver varieties and blue in the points. To date, over 50 color variations of the British Shorthair are known. These can be divided into the categories full color, bicolor and point. There is also the well-known tabby pattern. Solid colors include white, black, blue, chocolate, lilac, cinnamon, fawn, red, and cream. These colors are combined with white in the bicolor and point variants. The most popular and well-known color variations are: blue and silver tabby in classic, spotted and mackerel.
