Tiffany Facts
Tiffany, also known as Chantilly, is medium-sized cat created in New York in 1969. Tiffany is not a descendant of a Burmese cat (even though this two breeds share many similarities). It was created from a pair of two chocolate-brown cats of unknown origin. Tiffany was initially known as "foreign longhair", but its name was soon changed to Tiffany. To avoid confusion with already existing British breed called Tiffanie (made by mixing Burmese and Chinchilla/Persian cat), Tiffany was later renamed to Chantilly and it is usually known as Tiffany/Chantilly today. Despite its beautiful coat and pleasant personality, Tiffany is still rare breed today.
