Havana Brown Cat Breed: History, Temperament & Health
This breed's origins are the same as for the Oriental Shorthair, but it has come to resemble the Russian Shorthair. Over the past decade, the breed has struggled to exist. To overcome this, in 1998 the CFA agreed to allow outcrossing again. As graceful as they look, Havana Browns are very physical cats - they are, for example, great climbers.
History Of The Havana Brown:
In the 1950's, British cat breeders developed a solid chocolate of Siamese type, which was registered as a chestnut-brown foreign in Britain and as Havana Brown in North America. In 1973, after the CFA accepted the Oriental Shorthair breed, Havana Browns were registered as chestnut Oriental Shorthairs. Confusingly, the chestnut color is now called Havana in Britain.
