Oriental - Shaded

History

If you want to read the full history of the Oriental breed click here. This Oriental variation was born in the 1970s in the UK. A mating between a chocolate point Siamese and a Persian Chinchilla created a litter that included two kittens that had shaded silver coats, which look like a slightly modified tabby pattern. This unique pattern and colour took the fancy of breeders who decided to develop this new branch of the Orientals.
