Domestic short-haired cat

What is the reason for the abundance of domestic short-haired cats in animal shelters?
I’ve been checking shelters and it seems there are mostly short-haired cats. I’m curious, why is that?

Many domestic short-haired cats are born as strays or are offspring of feral cats.

Unfortunately, some people may perceive domestic short-haired cats as less valuable or desirable than purebred cats, leading to a higher rate of abandonment or surrender to shelters.

I agree with this one dude :100:

They are the most common type of cat found in households due to their availability and adaptability.
