The Havana Brown (aka Swiss Mountain Cat) is a domestic cat that is from Britain.

HistoryEdit

The Havana Brown was first shown at a show in England in the 1890s. To make this breed breeders bred a brown cat with a Siamese. Many often comment as the 'Non-Blue Eyed Siamese'. During World War I and World War II, the Havana Brown population suffered and went down. But after World War II, in the 1950s, breeders started to restore the Cat Breed. The ladies credited with bringing back the Havana Brown are Mrs. Armitage Hargreaves of Laurentide Cattery, Mrs. Munroe-Smith of Elmtower Cattery, the Baroness Von Ullmann of Roofspringer Cattery, Mrs. Elsie Fisher of Praha Cattery, and Mrs. Judd of Crossways Cattery. They did this by breeding a black shorthair with a Siamese.

The name may have come from Havana cigars as the coat colour is the same as the cigar. Also in the 1950s the breeds was shown in America and Britain. In the late 1990s, in Britain, there was only around 140 Havana Brown's.
