CHARTREUX ❤️

Cani e gatti ❤️ rivista Dog Style 2 En

History Legend has it that Crusaders returning from Turkey and Palestine were hosted in Carthusian monasteries, called charterhouses in English. Some Crusaders gave the monks two cats with gray-blue coats that were considered very good at hunting mice. For this reason, the monks began to breed them, and this is how the Chartreux breed was born. In the following centuries, unfortunately, its fur was used in French noble families. With the French Revolution and the fall of absolute monarchy, this custom was lost but the Chartreux almost disappeared. After the Second World War this breed was almost at risk of extinction. General Appearance It is a robust and muscular cat. The fur is smooth and very thick, gray in color with blueish shades. The shades allowed by the breed standard vary from ash to slate grey. The color must be uniform and the same for fur and undercoat. The eyes, however, range from dark yellow to light yellow. The ears are set high and give it an alert appearance.
