Tiffany - Longhaired Cats

Picture: Tiffany

A cat that is essentially a longhaired Burmese, the Tiffany has the elegant combination of a modified Foreign or Oriental body type with a luxuriously long, silky coat.

Tiffany kittens are born a color that has been described as “cafĂ© au lait”. The darker, mature, coat develops gradually, but is usually still slightly lighter in tone than for a Burmese.

History
Produced from crossing Burmese cats with Longhairs, the Tiffany is still relatively unknown – even in the US, where it was originally developed by North American breeders and cat fanciers.

Temperament
As a hybrid breed, the Tiffany displays a range of inherited characteristics: it has the gentleness typical of a Longhair, but with the more outgoing and inquisitive personality associated with Shorthairs.

Varieties
Although there are a number of Burmese varieties, only one colour is recognized in the US for the Tiffany: the original brown or Sable. There is a move in Great Britain, however, toward the recognition of a greater number of varieties.
