Note: the previous listed penalties and disqualifications apply to all British Shorthairs. Additional penalties and disqualifications are listed under colors

Handling British Shorthairs
? British Shorthairs feel insecure off the floor ? Strong supportive “full body hold” will often be all it takes to calm an uncertain British Shorthair ? Support the cat’s body lengthwise ? Most British Shorthairs prefer to stand alone on the judging table showing themselves off to you.

More on handling:
? British Shorthairs need only slight hand touches to let them know they are not alone on the table ? Use your own judgment if you feel the cat is a flight risk ? Feathers are good tools to judge profile and head ? Do not tilt the head backwards – their neck is too short and this is painful for the cat ? Do not over-handle their thick tails
