A keen observer of life, the Chartreux is a tolerant breed, less talkative than most, with a high-pitched meow and a rarely used chirp.  A big, late-maturing cat, the Charteux is also a good hunter, if not a fighter: individuals tend to withdraw from conflict rather than display aggression.

History Of The Chartreux:

The Chartreux's ancestors arrived in France by ship, possibly from Syria.  By the 1700's, it was known as the "cat of France".  After World War 2 it became almost extinct and was reestablished by outcrossing survivors with blue Persians and blue British Shorthairs.  The Chartreux reached North America in the 1970's.
