Havana Brown Cat Names — 1 Comment

  1. Morris, as usual, isn’t correct (he should stick to obsessing about phallic shaped objects). The Havana was bred in the UK and because it is an Oriental Shorthair it (along with the related Pavane) and was renamed bringing the name in line with standard naming conventions (a lot of breed names include place names that do not reflect the geographical origin of the breed). However some early “Havana” cats had been exported to the USA where they were developed into an entirely different breed called the Havana Brown with a different head shape.

    The Havana Brown is an American breed. It is different from the British breed that was once known as the Havana. The British version is now the Chestnut Oriental Shorthair and has the body shape of the modern Siamese.
