Snowshoe basic information

The Snowshoe is a breed of cat. The first Snowshoes appeared in the 1960s in America, as a result of cross-breeding between a Siamese and a bi-colored American Shorthair.

The ears are large and triangular. The head will also be triangular and usually has black markings. In purebreds, the eyes are always blue. Coat is short-haired, and is white and gray. The tail is medium-sized. Snowshoe cats come in blue, fawn, chocolate, and seal points.

Weighing 8-10 pounds, this is a powerful, medium-sized cat. It's well balanced- not too small, not too big. Shorthaired, with a medium tail and having a pointed coat pattern like its relative, the Siamese, its white feet distinguish the breed. Its two predominate colors are Seal Point and White, and Blue Point and White. Patterns may vary with white spotting. Regardless of specific markings, this is a most striking looking animal.

The broad, triangular head has an inverted, white "V" extending from the forehead to the muzzle. Snowshoe's ears are medium to large and rounded, while the eyes are bright blue and alert ovals. The legs are medium length with round paws. This cat is a perfect combination of the sleek Siamese and the sturdy American Shorthair
