Domestic shorthaired cats are characterised by a wide range of colouring and typically 'revert to type' after a few generations, which means they express their coats as a tabby cat. This can be any color or combination of colors. They also exhibit a wide range of physical characteristics and, as a result, domestic shorthaired cats in different countries tend to look different in body shape and size, as they are working from differing gene pools. DSH cats in Asia tend to have a build similar to a purebred Siamese or Tonkinese cat, while European and American varieties have a thicker, heavier build.
Domestic Shorthair cats have personalities as varied as their appearance. One Domestic Shorthair is not the same as the other.
