Like every connoisseur of chocolates will tell you, "a choco stick is better than a golden bar", a fan of Tiffany will tell you, "a choco stick is better than....well, any other cat". "Tiffany's pristine chocolaty colour is still the most beloved and has led many to describe their great affection for their chocolate-coated cat with words reserved for enjoyment.
Tiffany has evolved a wider range of colours, among them blacks, blues, cinnamons, teats and lilacs, since the Tiffany growers began to concentrate on the vitality of the race through outbreeding. It is called a half-long fur. Tiffany is so smooth and decadent that you want to keep it on your knee for years.
And since this race has only one hair mantle ( (which by the way has only a minimum hair loss), you can give yourself to this cute titbit of a cat without having to work with the fuzz-pad later. Full coats grow in gradually and reach their full growth capacity when Tiffany is about 24-month-old.
During this period, the hair slowly becomes a full, contrast frill (the hair around the throat and under the chin) and a full hair inside the ear (also known as furniture or streamers) that is brighter in the shadow than the other one. With increasing maturity, the skin on the backs becomes significantly thicker (the full growing on the backs is known as the petticoat) and the tails become a full feather.
Tiffany has riveting ovals, which can range from bright golden to bright golden-brown. There are some with a green glow around the irises, and the contrasts sometimes make the eye appear golden. Tiffany is a combination of a sound, wellbalanced dosage of obedience and exercise. The Tiffany is the perfect travel guide and home for the elderly and disabled.
Tiffany connects very well with the people by choosing one or two members of the housekeeping and pouring care and affection on them. Tiffany does it best when he gets the same amount of care he gives him. You don't like to be alone for long and get melancholic when you are alone too often.
It is one of the simplest half-long hairs to care for, as there is no fluffy sub-wool that would get tangled with the topknot. Tiffany has full head of fur in her ear, and growth is one of the requirements that go with this feature. The Tiffany has a sensitive digestive system. Other topics that are not harmful but should be noted are accounts that the Tiffany has a sensitive intestine.
Holders who plan to raise will experience longer contractions for the kitten and a longer lactation with their kitten. Though there is no cat that is free of allergens (even the sphynx, which is almost totally hairless) because the Tiffany loses so little, humans with minor sensitivities would cope well with this race.
Jennie Robinson bought two chocolatebrown females with cream coloured ears, an 18-month-old dog and a 6-month-old she-dogs. Their parents, Thomas and Shirley of Neotype (the name of the breed), were recorded by the American Cat Association as Sable foreign long-hairs and were called for a while strange long-hairs, until it was determined that this was too common and the race got its own name.
The Sigyn Lund, of the Sig Tim Hil Cattery, was a Burmese grower, and since this new race of longhaired was similar to the Burmese, of course folks thought that the cat was the outcome of the crossbreeding of a Burmese with another one. However, the only real resemblance that the two races had in common was the full fur.
There were no characteristic features such as dots on the coat and rose heels. To distinguish her race from the Burmese and others, Lund chose a name. Lund, who had been influenced by a chic theater in L.A., the Tiffany, saw it as an elegance that would evoke pictures of a past era of glamor and luxury.
However, the rumour that the Tiffany was of Myanmar origin lead to the assumption that the race was the result of a hybrid between the Myanmar and the Himalayas and that it had its origin in England. Crossbreeds of long-haired non-German breeds existed with Angoras, Havannas and Abyssinian in the United Kingdom, and it is believed that the Robinson kittens were derived from these endeavours, but the fact was that at that point Lund was still bred by the two primitive breeds and that no such crossbreeding with the Myanmar and Himalayas or any other breeds had been carried out.
For a while Lund was still misconstrued because she had already established her fame on the Myanmar race, and because the Tiffany was so new, and there were so few of them, she had difficulties accepting this race as such. The programme was adopted by a number of Cannabis growers in the 1970' s, and with these further endeavours the Tiffany genetic stock was expanded and more colour variation was added to the line, in order to improve the genetics of the line.
Meanwhile, British growers have been drawn by the potential of a new race and the Burmese hybridized with the Silver Chinchilla Persians in the 1970'. Tiffanie was chosen by the Governing Council of the Cat Fancy for the race name, and this same but slightly different name confused the race even more.
Canadians and US breeders renounced Lund's favourite name for another one that was not in use: the Chantilly. Tiffany is still used by some cat lovers, but is usually used in combination with Chantilly/Tiffany.
