Description / History
Affectionate and people-oriented, the Snowshoe is an amiable and loving friend and companion. Although not as vocal as a Siamese, the Snowshoe can be quite a talker, albeit with a softer, more melodic voice.
The Snowshoe is a shorthaired cat with a pointed coat pattern, white markings on the feet (for which the breed is named), and an inverted white "V" on the face, which begins in the middle of the forehead and descends to the muzzle. These cats come in two color combinations: seal point and white, and blue point and white.
The Snowshoe's eyes are large and almond-shaped. The eye color is vivid blue.
Short to medium short; no noticeable undercoat; texture smooth; close-lying; seasonal changes to be considered.
The Snowshoe is accepted by AACE, ACFA, CFF, and TICA.
