Chartreux


The cat with the most unique smile

Research indicates that these French cats actually originated in ancient Persia and were most likely brought back to France by knights returning from the Crusades. A tough mouser, the Chartreux is a fine-boned but muscular cat with a woolly, water-resistant bluish-grey coat. But perhaps most unique is this breed’s smile—the result of a rounded head that tapers to a narrow muzzle.
