The Cinnamon Shorthr is a short-hred breed of domestic cat originating in the United Kingdom. The breed was originally named the Battersea Persian, and later the Battersea Shorthr. The first written reference to the Cinnamon Shorthr dates back to 1893.

The Cinnamon Shorthr has been used as an example of selective breeding. A study showed that the Cinnamon Shorthr is genetically distinct from the Himalayan and Persian breeds.

History

The Cinnamon Shorthr was originally called the Battersea Persian. The first written reference to the breed comes from 1893 when the breed was named "Battersea Persian". The name was changed to Battersea Shorthr in 1895.

An early fan of the breed, known as "D.D.", bred "Battersea Shorthrs" to "Persians". He kept records of the offspring and published the results in The Cat, a British magazine. In 1896, he named the breed "Cinnamon" after the original Battersea Shorthr.

The Battersea Shorthr and the Cinnamon Shorthr share some common characteristics and genetic material. They both have very high-waved, rounded ears. The ears are long and rounded. The head is relatively broad, and the neck is short and thick. The coat is soft and dense, and the tl is bushy.

Genetic origins

The Cinnamon Shorthr's ancestry was originally traced back to Persia and the Himalayas, specifically to the Persians of Iran and Kashmir. Persian cats were imported to Britn from Persia around the 15th century.

Himalayan cats were imported to the UK in the 1930s and 1940s by English-speaking people who had immigrated to India. They are most similar in appearance to the Persian cats. The Cinnamon Shorthr shares many similarities to the Himalayan, such as color and length of the ears.

Persian cats are a sub-breed of the modern Persian cat, which is a separate breed. This is the result of the breed's history and selection process. The Persian cat is descended from a cross between European shorthrs and a large population of Persians, which were imported to Europe from Persia by the British during the 19th century.

Inbreeding has become increasingly common in the UK, especially for cats and dogs. Cats in particular are often inbred due to their high breeding success. A study in the US in 1994 found that the incidence of genetic disorders in purebred cats increased by 3.6% each year. The majority of the study's population consisted of pedigree cats, which had an increased risk for genetic diseases due to increased inbreeding. Inbreeding also has an effect on the color, coat, and structure of cats. The Cinnamon Shorthr is a relatively common breed, especially compared to other cats. It is an inbred cat breed in the UK.

The Cinnamon Shorthr is a genetic mixture of the Himalayan and Persian breeds. As of 2017, there are seven distinct genetic groups within the Cinnamon Shorthr: (1) Battersea Shorthrs, (2) Battersea Persians, (3) Himalayan Shorthrs, (4) Persian Shorthrs, (5) Persian Battersea Shorthrs, (6) Persian Battersea Persians, and (7) Persian Himalayans.
