Feline Breed Spotlight: Snowshoe

The Snowshoe cat!


The Snowshoe is a fairly new breed of cat and is considered a rare breed. This breed was created by breeding Siamese cats to American shorthairs, resulting in a sturdy cat with markings of a white nose with an inverted “V” shape and white paws. The rarity of these cats is due to the difficultly of reproducing the proper breed standard markings. The Snowshoe originated in the United States in the 1960’s.
