Havana Brown cats’ origins can be traced back to a hundred years ago as a division of the Royal Cats of Siam in South East Asia. They first appeared in Britain in the 1800s along with the arrival of the Siamese cats. But all modern the Havana Brown cats’ ancestry can be traced back to the very first Havana Brown named Quinn’s Brown Satin of Sidlo, a kitten of two brown cats namely Roofspringer Mahogany Quinn and Laurentide Brown Pilgrim of Norwood.
Aficionados of the Havana Brown believed that these cats got their name from being as brown as the color of rich Havana Tobacco.
This breed is beyond compare to other brown cats because the Havana has a unique gleaming and mahogany brown fur that is rich and smooth to touch. This is the only cat pedigree that requires a specific whisker color – their whiskers must be brown and match the color of the coat. The head of the Havana Brown is a little longer with a blushing red nose and its chin is remarkable. Its eyes are oval and vivid green while the ears are huge and round tipped.
The Havana Brown cats are classified as shorthair, thus there is absolutely no need for any special grooming treatment. Occasional bathing, nail clipping, ears cleaning, plucking any stray white hairs and coat brushing is enough to keep your Havana on its best.
The Havana Brown is a charismatic, lighthearted cat with a gentle voice. This breed is incredibly social and often found sitting along with a group of people. Unlike other cats, the Havana uses its paws to explore and satisfy its inquisitiveness. He touches and feels things around him. This cat enjoys training lessons and appreciates applauses that makes him a brilliant show cat.
