Havana Brown Cat



Even though the Tamra Maew Cat-Book Poems, an old book that dates all the way back to 1350 c.e. when Siam was established, mentions solid brown cats, the Havana Brown cat as we know it today is a very recent breed. The original old brown cats weren't only lovely pets; people also thought they could ward off evil. A few self-brown cats were transported to England from Siam at the end of the 19th century because they were thought to be so valuable. "Siamese, with coats of burnished chestnut, and greeny-blue eyes," was how they were characterized.
Not all of these early immigrants have the same genetic makeup as contemporary Havana Brown cats. They were most likely Burmese, Tonkinese, and Siamese with chocolate points. Some may have been the offspring of Siamese matings with domestic black or blue cats, giving rise to cats that resembled modern Havana Browns.

Records indicate that during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, solid brown cats were presented in Europe. More proof that early cat enthusiasts admired these magnificent chocolate-colored cats as much as we do now comes from the fact that a brown cat won first place in an English show in 1888.
By banning solid brown cats without blue eyes from competition in 1930, the British Siamese Cat Club stated, "The club sincerely regrets it is unable to encourage the breeding of any but blue-eyed Siamese."
Fortunately, this wasn't the end; in the early 1950s, solid brown Siamese cats gained popularity once more. A group of English cat breeders got together, studied the inheritance of the chocolate gene, and eventually started a breeding program. They were successful in producing solid-colored kittens with the color of a Siamese cat's chocolate points by mating Siamese cats with domestic shorthairs and a few Russian Blues. It should be noted that these offspring were darker than Burmese kittens, which have a paler shade of sable.

About the Havana Brown Cat

Havana Brown cats make wonderful all-around pets for households of all shapes and sizes because they are amiable, perceptive, and lively. They enjoy spending time with kids and can create enduring friendships with other animals. The Havana Brown has earned the moniker "Chocolate Delight" thanks to all of these excellent qualities. These cats are simply lovely, with stunning chocolate coats and striking green eyes. A Havana Brown cat is unlike any other cat in the world.

A Havana can be a good option if you're looking for a watchful pet. The Havana Brown is a charming cat who thrives on social interaction, defying common perceptions of cats as distant, solitary creatures. These cats are unhappy when their favorite people are not at their sides.

The Breed Standard

The medium-sized Havana Brown cat has a powerful body that is neither cobby nor excessively lengthy. Cats with the Havana Brown coat tend to weigh more than they do.
A powerful chin and a snout that almost seems square should be present on the head, which should be longer than it is wide. The area behind the whisker pads clearly breaks.
The coat should be silky, short, and have a highly plush feel.
The only colors that are permitted are those made of chocolate. TICA permits eumelanistic lilac coloration as long as the cat has a chocolate basis. To suit the cat's coat color, the nose leather and paw pads should be deep chocolate to black in hue.
EYES The eyes should be big and oval-shaped. All shades of green are acceptable, though lighter shades are preferred. Up to the age of one year, Havana Brown cats are capable of changing their eye color.
Although not delicate boned, the legs should be lengthy and lean. The feet should have an oval form and be compact.
