A medium sized breed with the build of an American Shorthair but looks of a Siamese, the Snowshoe’s physical trait marks are their pure white paws, their dazzling blue eyes and the inverted white “V” on their muzzle which can be quite prominent or faint. Their coat is short and comes in a variety of colours including blue, seal, lilac and chocolate. Their mask, eyes, legs and tail are usually darker than their body. Snowshoe kittens are born all white and will show their colours and special features several weeks later. No two Snowshoe kittens have identical markings.
