Snowshoe Cats are the recipe for what can be described as the purrfect cat. Originating from America and a cousin of the Siamese cat they process an intelligent and laidback attitude, that are more or less kittens for life, with interactive people orientated personalities.
The Snowshoe cat is a relatively new sort after breed, it resembles the traditional old type siamese cat with a bombproof nature and people orientated personality. The snowshoe is still a rare breed cat, but we dont predict it will be for long as it has increased in popularity over the years due to the laid back and bombproof nature of this lovely cat.
Welcome to my Snowshoe Cat Website, I am Kelly Cruse of Destrier Cats. I breed Snowshoe and Siamese Cats as a hobby. I am very Passionate and dedicated to healthy breeding and simply adore animals.
Resembling Grumpy Cat, snowshoes have the most delightful personalities. Someone once told me that if you could take the Siamese personality and put it together with an interesting Bi colour shorthair, you would have the makings of a perfect cat! Well they were right and here we introduce something even better than that the Snowshoe....
The Snowshoe is a medium sized muscular well balanced rare bred cat Originated from America by crossing a Siamese with an American bicolour . The Snowshoes are fit agile cats with excellent need to be touched and socialise personality.
The snowshoes are sort after for their bombproof nature and beautiful blue eyes and striking coat patterns. They are very intelligent; process gentle melody voices, which they use to chatter to their human companions and they are very good with children. They have beautiful short soft, bouncy coats with unique coat patterns. You will not find two snowshoes the same; they are like pebbles on a beach with personality and looks.
Snowshoes vary in price depending on pattern and if you would like to breed, show or just have one as a pet.

Different Pattern Snowshoes
All patterns can be shown, except for the colourpoint Snowshoes, who can be used in breeding programmes. To show with the GCCF all cats must have no white on their ears. These cats resemble the old style Siamese and are popular for pet homes.
Snowshoe with all over body colour and no white anywhere. They are very striking with Colourpoints and a lighter body coat, with no white. They resemble old fashion Siamese look. These cats cannot be shown, but can be used in breeding programme.
Harlequin (high white)
These kittens have vast amounts of white over one third of the body will be white with patterns of colourpoint. Some can be a dazzling white all over, which is very striking and different. They can be shown, but usually these are popular and are snapped up as striking pets.
These kittens have varying degrees of white and colour in unique patterns, with up to a third of the body colour white. No two will be the same and the bicolour can vary. They will still have white feet and a coloured tail and points. They are often shown with GCCF providing they have coloured ears and white feet. They are excellent for breeding as they produce balane white kittens.
Mitted (low white)
These kittens have colour all over with white slippers on front feet and white boots up to hocks on back legs. Sometimes with white on the chin. They are very close to the Show pattern and can be shown.
Preferred Show Pattern
These kittens are hard to come by or you will normally find boys displaying this pattern more. These kittens have a white "vee" on the face, with coloured ears and body with white slipper feet and white back boots. This pattern may well vary from cat to cat.
