Chartreux

This cat is similar to the British Shorthair, but it comes from France. Their coat is blue, and water resistant, and they have orange or copper eyes.

These cats are also known for a great smile!

Chartreux cats are not very noisy, with not too much meows and cries. They are playful as adults and kittens, and they are pretty intelligent. Some cats learned how to open screen door latches, and others can turn radios on and off. This cat also tends to bond with one person in the house, but stays friends with everyone else.
