HAVANA - Frequently Asked Questions?

How did the Havana get its name?

Considered to be the most likely explanation of the breed's name is that its colouring is very similar to that of Havana cigars, however, some have also argued that the breed's name is also derived from the Havana (rabbit) which also shares the colour.

Why is the Havana considered to be unique?

An Havana has a beautiful coat; it's glossy and mahogany toned brown. With just a little grooming their coats will remain smooth, lustrous, and feel like mink to the touch.

The head of the Havana has a long straight line from the top of the head to the tip of the nose. The Havana has ears that are strikingly large, pointed, and set wide at the base. The Havana also has a long neck and a tubular body like a Siamese or Oriental Shorthair.

Their eyes can be mesmerising at times; the green, oval-shaped eyes give them a look of constant interest, if they aren't actually doing something they shouldn't they will certainly look like they are about to.

How about temperament?

The Havana is always enthralling, they can play none stop for hours and like to have a say in everything and anything that is going on, they have a gentle if sometimes persuasive voice .

They are very touchy feely and will play with anything that isn't nailed down, but enjoy settling down for a cuddle on your lap or chest or on your shoulders.

They just love being around people and will want to be involved in everything you do, so patience is a great virtue when looking after an Havana.

The Havana is very sociable, affectionate and intelligent and never stands on ceremony; when you have visitors, the Havana will want to know straight away who they are and how much they like to have cats around; the Havana won't run and hide for the first few hours of someone's visit like other breeds do.

The Havanas look is so representative of their temperament; chocolate - warm and so inviting...
