The Havana Brown Cat Breed

Havana Browns developed from early British-bred cats of moderate type sent to the U.S. in the 1950s. The name was derived from its mahogany coat color, which resembles the color of a Cuban tobacco.

Breeders in America preferred to maintain the early moderate body and head type, rather than strive for a Siamese-like cat. The slender Havana has now developed as a uniquely North American breed and was recognized for championship in 1964.

The head is slightly longer than it is wide with a “stop” on the nose between the eyes. Due to its distinct muzzle shape, often described as resembling a protrusion on the face rather than an extension of the head, its color, and large forward-tilted ears, it is comparable to no other breed. the oval eyes are chartreuse to green in color.

The Graceful and moderately lithe in body type, Havanas are firm and muscular but never coarse or cobby. The rich warm mahogany brown color and smooth, lustrous coat give this cat its true glory.

The Havana Brown temperament is even, quiet and gentle. It has a soft voice and loud purr. It shows a great desire for human companionship devoting itself to an individual rather than a family but loves to curl up with several cats to enjoy mutual grooming sessions.
