SnowshoeThe snowshoe cat is a breed of cat that is thought to have originated in America in the 1960s. The snowshoe is believed to be a mixed breed cat and the snowshoe cat is the result of breeding a Siamese cat with an American shorthair cat.
The snowshoe cat is seen to be a sturdy cat, with pointed features with lean and muscular features. The elegance of the snowshoe cat has meant that today the snowshoe cat is an increasingly popular breed of domestic cat, despite the fact that the snowshoe can often be relatively small in size.
The snowshoe cat has soft, thick fur and is well known for its calm and affectionate nature. Although the snowshoe cat has its placid moments, it is also a very active breed of cat, a trait which the snowshoe cat inherits from the curious Siamese cat.
Snowshoe cats are loving and loyal animals and are not greatly happy when they are left on their own. Snowshoe cats are known to be very vocal animals and enjoy to make themselves heard in the household.
