I've heard that purebred American Short Hairs are not that common. Is your aunt prepared to spend hundreds of dollars on a cat it sounds like she plans to make into an outdoor cat? A lot of people believe that cats should have access to the outdoors, but nowadays, as I've told you before, the outdoors is MUCH more dangerous than it used to be, especially if they live near a busy road or area that may contain coyotes which are becoming very common. Although some breeds have the reputation of being good hunters, high jumpers and very intelligent, there are exceptions to every breed. The qualities that make a 'good' cat are socialized into a cat with love, proper health care and nutrition(if it eats a poisoned mouse, it could die as well). It can't be adopted and then tossed out to fend for itself, hunting and climbing to avoid predators. It has to be a part of the family. Tell them to go to a reputable shelter and ask the staff for help, Many do have purebred owner surrenders now.
