Amazing Grace
Purred: Thu Mar 8, '07 11:09pm PST 
OK, my younger Sister, Checkers, started the first post for Domestic Medium Hair's, so, I'm honored to start the first for DSH's.
My name is Gracie, I'll be 3 on March 31st.
My Sister, Checkers, is 17 months, and we have a Bridge Sister, Heidi, who has been at RB, since 10/27/05.
I'm classified as a Brown Tabby, and Mom and my Vet, suspect that I may be crossed with American Shorthair, since, my markings are so strong and distinct.
Checkers and I were both adopted from the same rescue group, about 2 months apart, by Mom, after Heidi has passed to the Bridge.
We live in Spokane, and are strictly indoor only (Mom's a huge believer in that), and anyway, we live in the city, and on a busy street.
I'm looking forward to meeting some more DSH's and making some new friends.
Have a Wonderful Friday and Week-end, and as my Sister said in her post:
Stay Well and Be Safe

Hi Gracie, you do have beautiful markings. My mama put down that I'm American Shorthair. but I read here on Catster that domestic shorthair is like a "mutt" and American Shorthair is a breed. I don't really understand that. I guess domestic shorthair is a mixed breed or like an "alley cat."

Whatever we are, we have good, loving homes and loving moms.

Love and purrs, Honey kitty

That's what I heard too. The DSH is basically a catch-all for cats (without "papers") that look like the ASH.

I don't go in for such fancy terms myself! I'm happy to be me!

Hey! *introduces self* I'm Xander, glad to meet you in this celbration of DSHism! wave laugh out loud cheer

I think I am a domestic shorthair, but I like to think that I am a goddess. . .
