Description

From 2001 to 2009, the White House had a very special four-legged furball named India in residence. This American shorthair cat was the pet of President George W. Bush and his family! The American shorthair is a breed with an all-American past. The Pilgrims brought these cats to America on ships such as the Mayflower, where they had an important job: killing mice and rats. Later, they hunted rodents on farms in Colonial America. Today, however, most American shorthairs live indoors as family pets. Their owners love them for their gentle and easygoing nature. Packed with real-life stories about these special cats, American Shorthairs: Pioneers details the breed's history, personality, suitability as a pet, and the special characteristics that set it apart from other breeds. Cat lovers will agree that it's the purr-fect read!
