CHANTILLY-TIFFANY CAT

Chantilly-Tiffany CatHISTORY

In 1967, Jennie Robinson purchased a pair of semi-foreign long-haired chocolate cats with gold eyes. The cats Thomas and Shirley gave birth to the first Chantilly-Tiffany kittens in 1969. Initially, the cat was registered in the early 1970s as “foreign long hair”. The breed’s name was then changed to Chantilly-Tiffany to avoid confusion with another breed called Tiffany. After several attempts to continue the breeding program of the Chantilly, catteries soon dwindled, and with a fire in 2012 which destroyed the Amorino Cattery along with all its records, and the unsuccessful attempt to breed the last remaining Chantillys, the breed has essentially become extinct.
