More details about the Chinchilla Persian

Chinchilla Persian: Origins and history

In 1880, an English breeder, Mrs. Vallence, crosses a Persian "smoke" with a "silver tabby" which gave birth to the very first Persian Chinchilla: Silver Lambkin. This breed spread rapidly throughout the kingdom thanks to the Queen's niece, Princess Victoria, who fell in love with it. It was recognised by the British Feline Breeds Register (GCCF) in 1901. The selection process was careful to create the emerald eyes and lighten the coat which, at first, was darker. The Second World War impacted the European branch of this breed, weakened by the rigorous selective breeding. Today, this is one of the most sought-after varieties of Persian.
