This is a picture of my lilac and cream boys (half-brothers), born 2 months apart.

The picture was taken a few months ago, they are now 16 and 14 months old.

They love each other to bits but are very different.

Charley, the lilac is a typical British Shorthair, i.e. 'Mr Cool', but Eric, the cream is smaller, naughty and noisy!!

Sia - my 8-month old British Shorthair
by: Sylvia - Dubai

Sia is an 8-month old kitten, who came to my house and my heart at the age of 2 months. A pure-bred British Shorthair, Sia lives up to her breed's personality. She is sweet, pleasing, non-destructive.

She is happy to follow me throughout the house, no matter how long I intend to be in a room. But she is also a furry bundle of energy - bouncing off the walls and tempting me to chase her. She loves playing hide & seek, pouncing on anything that moves, though she will never use her claws on humans.

She is not a lap cat and will just tolerate cuddles for my sake. Night times are entirely different matter altogether - sleep-time means sharing-my-pillow-time.

She likes watching tv, esp Animal Planet. Always responsive to her name, she knows which kitchen cupboard her treats are kept, and knows instantly whenever its opened. An ever-curious critter, she is a happy cat who has her own way of communicating with me with her chirps and trills.

Noisy BSH
by: Michael

Well, I am guessing but although the British Shorthair is known for the silent meow, there has to be a wide range of individual characteristics and personalities and some are going to be the opposite to the accepted norm.

BSH boys washing each other...
by: Karen

Thanks Michael

I do wonder about Eric- why he is so noisy? Does anybody else have BSH's who are so vocal-and naughty?! I'd be very interested to hear..

BSH
by: Michael

Nice pic. I love to see cats getting on like that. The only BSHs that I have seen were the classic laid back and very quiet type. Helmi Flick's Brit SHs have this fascinating silent voice. The mouth opens and a meow is being made but no sound emerges!

Thanks for sharing.
