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.
The Pewter Longhair was produced as a result of crossing Chinchillas, Blues, and Blacks.
This is an exceptionally affectionate and even-tempered cat.
There are no varieties.
Round and road with a snub nose. Brick-red nose pad.
Very large and round, either orange or copper in colour with Black eye rims.
Small, round-tipped, and tufted, with a good width between them.
"Pewter" describes perfectly the colour of the breed's tipped mantle.
A chunky, coby type.
Silky, thick, and dense. Colour is white with subtle black tipping.
Short and thick. Shorter hair on forelegs.
Short with a full brush. Guard hairs of the tail are delicately tipped in black.
The paws are large and round with rick-red pads.
When it is lying down, the Pewter's thick, luxurious, coat and full frill make it virtually impossible to discern the cat's cobby build. With Long guard hairs.
A pewter that is destined for the show ring ideally should have a full neck ruff that extends into a deep frill between the front legs.
