European Shorthair

European Shorthair - Cat Facts

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.
