Thought to be the predominant domestic cat variety in France at one time, the Chartreux (possibly named for the fine-quality Spanish wool called pile de Chartreux that was imported by France) had nearly disappeared by the 1800s. In the 1920s, however, a large colony of these cats was discovered on Belle-Ile-sur-Mer, off the coast of Brittany. Chartreux make gentle, devoted pets that get along quite well with other household animals, children, and even strangers. They are affectionate and loyal, and like to be near (or on) their human companions, whom they will follow everywhere.

This is a husky, muscular cat with broad shoulders, an oval head, and a short muzzle. Proportionately small feet give the Chartreux the appearance of walking on tiptoe. The large, round, wide-set eyes range in color from copper to gold; the ears are small to medium and stand erect and close together.
Weight: 9 to 12 lbs
