More details about the Snowshoe

Snowshoe: Origins and history

In the late seventies, an American farmer set out to create a white-footed Siamese breed, as she had seen in Victorian-era images. To achieve this, she crossed Siameses with bicoloured American Shorthairs and probably some Burmeses too. 

It was in 1983 that the first feline association (CFA) recognized the Snowshoe. They are still a very rare breed, although they are slowly gaining popularity.

Snowshoe: Purchase price

On average, you’ll need to spend approximately £200 to buy a Snowshoe kitten. The price usually varies depending on rarity, lineage, breeding, age and sex. For your monthly budget you should allow at least £25 per month to ensure you cater to their dietary and medical needs so that they stay in good health.
