History Of The Chantilly/Tiffany:
In 1967, a Florida breeder bought a pair of gold eyed, longhaired cats of unknown background, although the chocolate coat implied a Burmese parentage. She also coined the name Tiffany. In the 1980's, confusion led to the breed almost vanishing. The breed was reestablished in 1988 in Canada and traced to the breeding program that created the Angora. Because the name "Tiffanie" was now being used by British breeders for the longhaired Burmilla, Canadian breeders altered the name to Chantilly/Tiffany.
Common Chantilly/Tiffany Health Issues:
Psychological stress when left alone frequently.
