Cat Breeds

Snowshoe Cat

Philadelphia breeder Dorothy Hinds-Daugherty developed this breed in the 1960s by crossing a Siamese with a bicolor American Shorthair. Breeder Vikki Olander saw the breed's potential, wrote the first breed standard, and persevered until the new Snowshoe was accepted for registration in 1974. This breed possesses the unflappable, easygoing temperament of its American Shorthair forebears, making it a fine companion for children or other pets.
The Snowshoe is a shorthaired cat with a pointed coat pattern, white markings on the feet (for which the breed is named), and an inverted white "V" on the face, which begins in the middle of the forehead and descends to the muzzle. These cats come in two color combinations: seal point and white, and blue point and white.

Weight: 8-10 lbs.
