New Jersey's Cat: American Shorthair

The American Shorthair was selected to represent New Jersey for the cats because of the breed's, and state's, oft-"confused" identity. This breed is frequently mistaken for the similar British Shorthair, just as the football teams of the NY Giants and NY Jets play in this state instead of the one named on their uniforms.
