The Chartreux Cat

Welcome to the site dedicated to the Chartreux Cat and the Finnish Chartreux Club.

The Chartreux is a very old breed: the blue cat was mentioned in the French medieval literature for the first time in the 16th century. In Finland this charming French breed was re-established in 1999.

The Finnish Chartreux Club was established in 2003 to get together those interested in the old French breed, the Chartreux. The Club cooperates with Suomen Kissaliitto and thus applies the rules of Suomen Kissaliitto and FIFe.
