American Shorthair Cat PIPER – photo copyright Helmi FlickThis popular cat breed (8th out of over 70) is meant to be heavy. I guess that means well muscled. After all this cat was a working barn cat like the Maine Coon in days past. Another feature of this breed is the square muzzle. The body shape is described as semi-cobby. The eyes are large and round and the ears are medium in size. These are the characteristics of a normal shaped cat! This cat should not be extreme like the Ultra Persian.
