British Shorthair Cat Facts
The British Shorthair boasts having short, close lying coats and as such they are low maintenance on the grooming front. A weekly brush is all it takes to keep their coats in good condition and to remove loose and dead hair. Like other cats, they tend to shed more profusely during the Spring and then again in the Autumn when more frequent brushing is usually necessary to keep on top of things.
It’s also important to check a cat’s ears on a regular basis and to clean them when necessary. If too much wax builds up, it can lead to a painful infection which can be hard to clear up. In short, prevention is often easier than cure with ear infections. Cats often suffer from ear mites which can be a real problem which is another reason why it’s so important to check their ears on a regular basis.
