Originally known as the Domestic Shorthair, the breed was renamed in 1966 to the American Shorthair. Today Domestic Shorthair is the name used to describe mutt cats with short hair, and American Shorthair is reserved for cats with purebred pedigrees. The cat was developed from native American working cats and was one of the first recognized American breeds.
