Chantilly Tiffany Breed Description

Chantilly Tiffany Cat | Breed Profile | Breed Description The Chantilly Tiffany is a semi-foreign medium-sized cat of striking appearance. Its rich colour and full, silky semi-long coat, plumed tail, contrasting neck ruff and ear streamers make it distinctive and showy. The medium-sized head has a gently sloped nose and short, broad muzzle that is softly squared with gentle contours and a break. The chin is firm. The cheekbones are broad and high. The medium-sized head has a gently sloped nose and short, broad muzzle that is softly squared with gentle contours and a break. The chin is firm. The cheekbones are broad and high. The preferred eye colour is gold-yellow-amber. The eyes are a modified oval shape, with an expressive look. The ears are broad at the base and medium sized, with rounded tips tilting forward and outward.    Breeders responsible for the wide re-acceptance of this breed have placed emphasis on retention of traditional conformation, free of health and maintenance concerns, as the breed was during its American breeding of 1967-1987. The body is of medium size and length, neither cobby nor svelte, (semi-foreign). The breed is of medium musculature and boning – females are 6-8 pounds, males are 8-10 pounds. The breed standard requires rich and lustrous colouration in blue, chocolate (which is the most well-known), cinnamon, lilac, and fawn, in both solid and tabby patterns. This, and a silky coat texture of appropriate length, make it a special cat. Slight variations exist between associations for patterns/colours accepted, but conformation and coat-quality and texture requirements are unilateral. Full beauty develops with maturity; shedding is minimal. White spotting is not allowed. Temperament: The Chantilly/Tiffany is a breed of loyalty, and easily becomes a close, affectionate companion that is not overly demanding or mischievous. They are not as placid as Persians, nor as active as Orientals, and are best described as moderate. Usually, they develop particular affinity to one person in the home, with whom they bond, conversing in quiet “chirps” or trills characteristic of the Tiffany. It does not thrive in endless hours of solitude, and may become quite lonely. Persons working full time should plan on a companion pet. Tiffanies integrate well with children and other pets and require little maintenance. The breed is gentle and easily managed. It will prefer the company of its special person to any other amusement. Some individuals forsake the “four-on-the-floor” reputation of their peers. They are usually friendly, but conservative with strangers. They leave no doubt as to their affection if you are their “person,” follow you constantly and respond well to their name. They are devotion in a silky chocolate (or other-coloured) robe. Health and Care: The breed is very healthy, not given to any particular problems. Some manifest...
