The European Shorthair cat is a type of shorthaired cat originating in
Sweden. This cat is one of the oldest and very common breeds, but it wasn't
standardized until quite late. The European Shorthair cat is currently only
recognized by one major cat club.
Because the European Shorthair cat hasn't been bred in a regal meaning, many
European Shorthairs don't have a pedigree and have not been certified as an
European Shorthair. Instead, most of these European Shorthairs are called "Bondkatt"(peasant
cat) in Swedish, for the fact that many were bred on farms.
