Snowshoe – Doncaster

Meet "Bleuy," a delightful 3-year-old male Snowshoe Seal Tabby Point Bi Colour looking for a new pet owner. With a hint of shyness initially but abundance of playfulness when comfortable, Bleuy is the perfect balance of cuddles and energy. He has been trained like a dog and knows how to sit, high five, jump, spin and roll over when given a treat. He has been toilet trained, microchipped, dewormed and desexed. Regrettably, our bustling schedules and frequent travels for work is preventing us from showering him with the attention he deserves. We are looking for a compassionate cat owner who can provide a nurturing and caring forever home. It would be great for Bluey to live in a home with another cat companion as he does not like being alone. As part of the price, this includes automatic cat feeder, drinking water fountain, cat bowls, cat food, litter tray and litter. If you're prepared to embrace the love and joy Bleuy brings, kindly send me a direct message. Serious inquiries only as we are committed to finding the ideal match for our cherished companion.

Origins

The Snowshoe originated in the 1960s in the United States, stemming from Siamese stock. The breed’s unique look came about as a result of a genetic mutation, leading to kittens born with white boots or ‘snowshoes’. This breed was then further developed, combining traits of the American Shorthair with the Siamese, resulting in the Snowshoe’s distinct appearance and pleasant temperament.

Key Characteristics Of Snowshoes

Are Snowshoes Family-Friendly?

Yes. Considering their affectionate nature, Snowshoes make excellent family pets. They are good with children and usually get along well with other pets. However, early socialisation is vital to ensure they’re comfortable around a variety of household noises and activities.

Common Health Issues & Considerations

Snowshoes may suffer from:

Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy

Crossed Eyes

Dental Issues

Nature / Temperament

Sociable, Intelligent, Affectionate, Playful, Vocal

Suitable Environment

Snowshoes adapt well to apartment living as long as they have enough activity. However, it’s important to ensure that they have a stimulating environment, complete with toys, scratching posts, and cat trees.

Other Considerations

Their distinct ‘V’ shaped facial marking, combined with white boots, sets them apart from other breeds.

Despite their Siamese lineage, they have a moderate voice, unlike the loud, characteristic voice of a Siamese.

● Snowshoes can exhibit ‘dog-like’ behaviours, such as fetching and following their owners around.

How can I take good care of my Snowshoe?

Nutrition

A balanced diet for a Snowshoe is essential. Quality cat food, whether commercial or homemade, should be provided. Ensure that it meets all the nutritional requirements, especially considering their active nature.

Grooming

A weekly brushing session is usually enough to remove loose hairs and reduce hairballs. During shedding season, you may need to brush them more frequently.

Exercise

Keeping your Snowshoe cat physically active is crucial for their well-being. A blend of independent and interactive activities is ideal. If you have a secure backyard, allowing supervised outdoor time can be very enriching for them. You can also use a leash for outdoor walks.

Training

The intelligence of the Snowshoe means they pick up on commands quickly. Use positive reinforcement techniques.

This is general information and should not be relied on for adopting or purchasing advice.
