Brazilian Shorthair basic information

The Brazilian Shorthair is Brazil's first breed to receive international recognition.

Its fabulous agility and elegance are balanced by its medium-sized, strong body. This beautiful cat is easily distinguished from other American Shorthair by its build which is sleeker than that of the American Shorthair It has an air that is not as refined, nor thin, as a Siamese. The Brazilian Shorthair's coat is short and close to the skin. It comes in a wide array of colors and patterns. Preferably the eyes match the color of the coat. A unique feature of their faces is that their eyes are set a specific distance apart. The space between both eyes is approximately equivalent to the actual size of a Brazilian Shorthair's eye. Dramatically expressive, their big eyes are almond-shaped, bright, and attentive. Although generally medium-sized and longer than wider, there is a key difference between the appearances of the males' versus the females' heads. The males have a bigger head, which gives them a grander overall appearance.
