Snowshoe Cats

Snowshoe Cats

Rare Breed Has Siamese Origins

The snowshoe cat came about almost accidentally, when three Siamese kittens were born with white paws — markings not common with the Siamese breed.

Originally called “Silver Laces,” the snowshoe cat breed originated in Philadelphia, Penn., 45 years ago but to this day remains one of the rarest breeds in the United States.

A sweet-natured cat with an affinity for tricks and agility, the snowshoe is a lovable family companion.

As with any pet, be sure to regularly consult a veterinarian for routine care and medical advice for your four-legged friend.
