Cat breeds: Tiffany Chantilly

FIFe classification and history

Name: Tiffany / Chantilly
Country of origin: United States.

In 1967, Jennie Robinson purchased a pair of chocolate-colored, golden-eyed long-haired cats in New York whose provenance was unknown. The color of the cats, however, indicated a relationship with the Burmese. The cats went to a Burmese breeder from Florida, who called them Tiffany, but association with the cats she bred was inevitable. In the 80s Chantilly risked extinction, but in 1988 a Canadian breeder stabilized the breed by calling it Chantilly / Tiffany (source
