British cats are cute, intelligent, shy, unobtrusive and moderately curious. They feel great both alone and in the company of other pets. The British love children and have excellent health. It is quite easy to identify a British kitten among babies of other breeds.
The British kitten bears a colossal resemblance to a small teddy bear. You can recognize it by its short, dense coat, reminiscent of North American mink fur, chubby cheeks, small, slightly rounded ears, widened at the base, and large, round, widely spaced eyes. These kittens differ from other breeds in their short, rather thick tail with a rounded tip.
You can easily identify a little Briton by short thick legs, a rounded head and a short neck. This is what these kittens look like at the age of 4-6 weeks. At this time, British babes are the very charm.
In the further period of growth, British kittens develop rather unevenly. They begin to stretch in length, then spread out in width. At this stage in the development of little Britons, you may also notice that their ears become unnaturally large, and their legs are too long. This period of the "ugly duckling" in different blood lines occurs at different times. For some, it begins as early as 2-3 months, for others - at 6-7.
The color of the eyes of British kittens directly depends on the color of their coat. Silver-colored animals have green or light brown eyes, and shaded silvers and shaded golden Britons have green eyes. In snow-white kittens, they are usually blue. But still, most British cats have eyes with shades of golden copper.
The British kitten is the best option for people who spend a lot of time outside the home. That is why representatives of this breed are called cats for businessmen. Their respectable appearance, calm temperament, self-esteem and surprisingly pleasant character allow British cats to gain incredible popularity among people all over the world.
