Welcome to our developing online reference library about the history of our beautiful Chinchilla and Shaded Persians in Silver and Gold and Blue. Some articles were written in the early 20th Century when Chinchilla Persians were initially selectively bred to develop the rare and beautiful Chinchilla color not found in the wild. CFA recognized the Chinchilla Persian color in 1894. Breeding records prior to this time are virtually nonexistant, save for a few well known Champions of the day. Most of the articles have pedigrees inbedded in the text. If a name of a cat appears in red, you can click on it to see the pedigree of that cat.
