Cat breed of the week: Chantilly


The Chantilly aka Tiffany comes in a variety of colors such as black, blue, cinnamon, fawn, and lilac. Some may have a ticked or tabby pattern as well.  This breed’s fur is very plush and only has one layer of fur. Because the Chantilly doesn’t have so many layers of fur, it helps with shedding. The coat grows slowly but will reach semi-long. This breed’s eyes range from a deep yellow to a rich amber.


The Chantilly is a healthy breed that mesh really well with seniors because they are very loving and just like to snuggle, this kitty gets along with kids and other pets too. They love to talk in a soft chirping like voice and usually will respond. This is the type of cat that will follow you around the house because they enjoy the company. This breed doesn’t do well alone and becomes very sad until his loved one comes home. Chantilly cats are very reserved around strangers.


Because this kitty has silky fur, grooming isn’t an issue and weekly brushing will do just fine. Because Chantillies have a lot of ear fur, wax build-up could be a problem. Therefore you may want to check their ears at least once a week. Some cats may have digestive problems as well but is a problem that can easily be solved with a regular diet and avoiding corn products.
