Description and characteristics of Havana Brown
Havana Brown has a rather unique look with its all-chocolate color, with mahogany shades, smooth,
soft and shiny. The latter highlights the intense color of its large oval eyes, always green. It is a
medium-sized cat with a muscular body, relatively long legs and a triangular head. The female is
smaller than the male.
His ears are big enough and carried straight on his head. One of the characteristics of Havana Brown
is its very square muzzle. Its tail is moderately long and ends with a tapered end.
There are two types of Havana Brown: the American type (with a muscular and rectangular body)
and the English type (muscular and long-limbed).
Origin of Havana Brown
Havana Brown descends from a cross between a Siamese and a European Shorthair. He appeared in
the United States in the 1950s when he was officially recognized in the mid-1960s. But his real home
country is Thailand. Havana Brown arrived in Europe in the 19th century in Great Britain where
breeders created the breed as we know it today. It is a rare cat especially in Europe. It is even on the
verge of extinction.
Character and behavior of Havana Brown – Who is it for?
