Everything about the non-pedigree housecatDennis Steenbakkers
Everything you need to know about the ‘normal’ housecat
Most people have a “normal” housecat in their home: the beloved home-garden-and-kitchen cat who is often incorrectly referred to as a European Shorthair. In this blog we tell you everything about domestic cats – about their characteristics, character and care. These cats come in all shapes, sizes and colors, but these fluff balls have one thing in common: They are great! Are you reading?
Characteristics of a housecat
It is often not known who the parents are of domestic cats and therefore there are no specific characteristics for these cats. They have many different types – they can be large or small, muscular or slim and short-haired or (partly) long-haired. Everything is possible with a house cat!
Colors and coat length housecat
And in terms of color, everything is possible – completely black, white, red or gray, tabby, spotted or the famous tortoise or calico cat. The house cat’s coat is generally short. If one of the cat’s parents is long-haired, this can be passed on to the kittens. Then, for example, a kitten suddenly has beautiful plumes on its ears.
Character and personality
Unfortunately, little research has been done on the character of cats. It is known that the genes of the father are the most dominant, so they are often passed on to the kittens. Because domestic cats are not bred, their character is therefore always a surprise: they can be calm, active, nice and lazy, confident or insecure.
