Chantilly Tiffany cats in the ski. Chantilly-Tiffany or Chantilly/Tiffany, also known as Chantilly or Foreign Long-hair, is a kitten race, which mainly comes from the crossing of long-haired Asians and Burmese. This race comes from North America. It differs from the Asian half-longhair race, the English one.
Chantilly was considered to have died out until the 1960' when two of these kittens showed up during a real property sales. It has a velvety, supple and sleek fur; the absence of sub-wool generally makes it easier to care for than a cat with sub-wool. Chantilly-Tiffany is slowly ripening and usually only comes into its own at the age of about two years.
Chantilly Tiffany has its origin in a colour of dark brown but is now adopted in a number of colours, among them dark brown, dark brown, red, blue, red, green, cinnamon, purple and tick. A Chantilly's overall look would be a semi-foreign female of a conspicuous colour, a full, silken semi-long hair, feathered tails, contrast frills and furniture in the ears.
A couple of Chantilly Tiffanys' overgrooms. Chantilly/Tiffany had its formal beginning as "Foreign Longhair". 1967 with Jennie Robinson (Neotype Cattery) from New York. In White Plains, New York, she bought a couple of semi-foreign long-haired gold-eyed Chocolated Dogs. They were all chocolaty and had a similar look.
To underline these characteristics, Robinson launched a cultivation programme. She finished her stud programme in the 1970' s. A kennel grower from Florida, Sigyn Lund (Sig Tim Hil Cattery) bought some of Mrs Robinson's cats and took over the kennel programme "Foreign Longhair". Lund's name as a Myanmar grower has been the subject of speculation that Chantilly was a long-haired Boor.
The name of the race was proposed by the magistrates because they considered the name of the race "Foreign Longhair" to be too common, the name "Mahogany" was proposed. Mrs. Lund christened the race "Foreign-Longhair" to "Tiffany" (a name that often stands for style and class). Under Tiffany Lund supported the race. Tiffany " has been taken out of circulation by one of the few ACAs.
Consequently, all Lund (Sig Tim Hil Cattery) registerd race officials were ignored and lose their pedigreeship. At the end of this meeting the race was promoted as "Burmesin". "Sig Tim Hil Chattery informed the scientist Joan Bernstein about these cat chocolates in an unofficial telephone conversation.
Earlier this year, this interview led to the release of information indicating the potential that they were the result of British crucifixes between Burma and the Himalayas (a Persian cross). The information was published in Harper's Illustrated Handbook of Catalog. "In 1989, The Ultimate Cat Book" by David Taylor also described the story of Tiffany as "out of the crossbreeding of Burma with Persians".
Wrong advertising and the telephone conversation could account for the connection to the Burmese in these book. These confusions almost led the race to die out. At about the same epoch as Robinson and Lund developed the "Tiffany" in the United States, a landowner in Canada was taken by surprise by a female appearing in his home in 1973.
It was a long-haired, semi-foreign, golden-eyed cat of unfamiliar descent, which gave newborns. This is an experiment that Robinson shares with the females in her cattery. Their descendants were saved by a group of native American growers in collaboration with Robinson and Lund to rebuild the "Tiffany" in North America.
An important Chantilly champion was Tracy Oraas, who began her commitment to the race in 1988 when she reacted to an ad for "chocolate kittens". Trace Oraas has contacted the Thai breeders Jan DeRegt. After consultation with a TICA-judges Oraas and DeRegt made an effort to rebuild the cattery.
Some important investigative work was needed, which included calling every vet in Florida, but they were able to get in touch with the Tiffany's initial breeder, Jennie Robinson and Sigyn Lund. Oras and DeRegt also came to the conclusion that the Burmese were never used in a Tiffany-breed. Her research revealed that British breeder had bred foreign longhairs (in an effort to reconstruct an Angora breed).
You assume that the Tiffany could have been a result of these endeavors. As none of the initial Chantilly's could be found, they founded with European Angoras, Havana Browns and Abyssinian and Nebulae. Oraas was asked to change the name of the race in 1992 because of possible confusions with the British Tiffanie.
In order to retain the elegant name "Tiffany", they selected "Chantilly". Until the beginning of the 2000s Tracy Oraas reared "Chantilly/Tiffany" and then seemed to have disappeared from the world of breed. There were several catteries that worked with Chantilly in 2001: one in Germany, one in Canada, one in Washington State, one in West Virginia and one in South Illinois, known as Amorino Cattery.
Davenport-Parini founded Amorino in 2001 when she took Nugget (also known as LTD or Little Tabby Dude) from Emberhearth to Illinois. In 2003 Amorino was the only "Chantilly" in the USA that was still in operation. It was the last known Chantilly breeders in the USA. catsunited. com/html/cui_links_chantilly_chantilly_tiffany.html.
