Ear infection

What is it?

The Chantilly-Tiffany has a long coat with lengthy “furnishings” that can get into their ears and cause unfortunate blockages. Ear infections can develop when the skin lining in the ear canal becomes irritated, leading to inflammation. Inflammation can lead to excess wax production in the ear.

Chantilly Tiffany: Introduction to the Breed

Chantilly Tiffany cats were first introduced in New York around 1969. It is believed that pair of chocolate color cats were crossed breed with some unknown heritage cat. Chantilly cats are often confused with semi-long-haired Burmese cats. The breed was first registered under the term ‘foreign long hair’ and later changed to Chantilly/Tiffany since the British had already named a crossbreed between a Chinchilla Persian and a Burmese with the same name.

In a medium-sized moderate looking cat with golden or yellow eyes, the intensity of eyes increases as the cat ages. Medium size ears spaced well with fur coming out of them. These cats quickly become a part of your routine and steal your heart with their affection.
