Snowshoe Cat Breed

From it’s warm, soft coat and mesmerizing blue eyes to it’s gentle purr and affectionate nature, the Snowshoe cat may well be the ultimate feline companion. This breed came to be in 1960, when a Siamese cat was crossed with a bi-color American Shorthair. The result was a unique cat with the beautiful blue eyes and pointed pattern of the Siamese and the white feet and sturdy muscularity of the American Shorthair.

These charming creatures are intelligent and innocent, affectionate and laid-back, yet playful and active. They love to play games and can even be taught to fetch. They get along well with other pets, including dogs, and are very adaptable to new environments. The unique coat comes in all the usual Siamese shades including seal, blue, chocolate, lilac, cinnamon and fawn.
