Pewter Longhair - Longhaired Cats

The colouring of this exquisite cat resembles that of the Shaded Silver variety of Chinchilla, with which it is sometimes confused. It has a similar handsome white coat, subtly shaded with black over the head, back, flanks, legs, and tail to give the effect of a pewter mantle. Its eye colour is different, however, being right orange or brilliant copper.



New Longhairs are being developed all the time, among which the Pewter must rank as one of the most attractive. On first inspection it may look like a Shaded Silver CHinchilla, ut orange or copper-coloured eyes are a distinguishing feature that firmly identifies the reed.
