Tiffanie

General
Names Note - the Tiffanie should not be confused with the Tiffany: an American breed, not recognised in the UK, and also known as the Foreign Longhair
Breed Classification Semi Longhaired (Asian Group)
Lifespan > 15 years
Average Litter Size 6
General Physical Description The Asian cats are of medium build, showing their Burmese ancestry. The head forms a short wedge shape, with large to medium ears, set so as to continue the line of the face. The medium to long tail is plumed. The eyes are set well apart and are neither almond-shaped nor round. The eyes may be any colour from yellow through to green. The body is firm and muscular with a strong straight back. The legs are of medium length and paws are oval.
Weight Height Range Tiffanies weigh between 4 - 7kgs.
Feeding
Visit our cat fooddepartment
Asians are active cats and require 80 Kcals per kg of bodyweight per day of food. These cats are not generally prone to obesity and regulate their own diets very well.
Ailments

The Asians have no specific health care problems and, like the Burmese, live well into their teens. As with all cats it is a good idea to have an annual health check from about the age of eight.

Character & Temperament The Tiffanie is a friendly and affectionate. They love attention and need to be part of the family. They can be quite demanding and often follow their owners around the house crying for attention. If spoken to they often appear to understand and answer. Asians are very intelligent and can often work out such problems as how to open doors. Their curiosity and friendliness can lead them to stray into visitor's cars or delivery vans and they may be best confined to the house or a secure garden. They usually settle quite happily to this arrangement, as above all they do love their home comforts. They love to play and toys and scratching post should be provided for amusement as well as quality time set aside for play with their humans. They can be very sensitive to their owner's feelings and this makes them excellent companions. They are generally good with children and when fed up with the rough and tumble of play with human children will stalk off until peace resumes.

Grooming & Upkeep The semi-long haired Tiffanie does require some attention but not as much the full longhaired coats of the Persians. A comb and soft brush will keep the coat in good order and if showing a Tiffanie a bath may be necessary.
Coat Length Medium
Colour The Tiffanie's coat is semi long and silky. All the Asian colours can be subject to the Burmese colour restriction gene. Self Tiffanie colours: Black, Chocolate, Red, Blue, Lilac, Cream, Caramel, Apricot. Tortie Tiffanies: Black Tortie, Chocolate Tortie, Blue Tortie, Lilac Tortie, Caramel Tortie. The tortie pattern may be less distinct because of the semi-long hair. Tabby Tiffanies: Brown, Chocolate, Red, Blue, Lilac, Cream, Caramel, Apricot, Black Tortie Tabby, Blue Tortie Tabby, Lilac Tortie Tabby, Caramel Tortie Tabby. The tabby and tortie patterns may be less distinct because of the semi-long hair. Shaded Tiffanies: The Shaded Tiffanie is the semi longhaired version of the Burmilla. Colours are as for Self Tiffanies, with the Shaded effect produced a dark end and a paler root to the hairs (see also Asian).t>
History And Uses The Tiffanie is the only semi-longhaired member of the Asian Group. The Asian Group was created by accident when a male Chinchilla had a clandestine meeting with a lilac female Burmese. The kittens were so attractive that they quickly won the hearts of all who saw them and new homes were found for them all. In fact so much interest was generated that a repeat mating was done and from there a new breed was formed. The kittens looked more like the Burmese than the Chinchilla and had the inquisitive, friendly Burmese temperament but they had the stunning silver colouring and the tipped markings of the Chinchilla. During the course of the Asian breeding programme, some litters contained kittens with longer coats, and these cats were used to produce this attractive new breed.
