About us


Bengal cat breed, shorthair cat, pedigree catMy name is Franny Hightower, aka The Short Hair Cat Guru, and I am a lifelong cat love having had pet cats since infancy. Our current cat is a Bengal called Cheetah. You can see Cheetah’s photos below and in the Bengal Cat section of the Short Hair Cat Breeds page. She’s our super cute cat with the softest fur who provides so much entertainment – we just adore her!

My family once had a Chinchilla cat which is a long haired cat breed – it was really gorgeous, but I’ll never have one again, they require far too much grooming and maintenance. Who has time in a busy family? Thereafter, I became a short hair cat lover, they are still beautiful and lovely to pat, but are far less work.

Are you wondering what cat breed is best for you? Short hair cats require much less maintenance than long hair cats and are not as susceptible to parasites too. This allows you to really enjoy your cat without the worry and upkeep of a long haired cat. 

This website has been set up to inform  you about everything you could possibly want to know about short haired cats and those that are low shedding cats – the qualities and idiosyncrasies each cat breed has and their distinctive markings. So you can decide which breed of cat is the right one for you.

Now I know that anyone with a pet cat is going to need to buy products to help look after their precious kitty cat, so I have researched consumer reviews of cat accessories and come up with my recommendations for the best products to buy at price points to suit everyone’s budget. Check out the top cat accessories of 2020.
