History:

The Chartreux Cat has a long history that legend says dates back to the Middle Ages. The Carthusian monks of France bred these cats at the Monastery of La Grande Chartreuse where the cat was named. Recently it is said that the Charteux Cats are named because of their woolly coat of fur and was given this name after the Spanish wool (pile de Chartreux) of the 18th century. There is definite documentation of their existence dating back to the 16th century in which these cats were noted for their unusual coat color and texture. The French breeders crossbred to Persians and British Shorthairs to try to save the breed from extinction during World War II. Before the War some Chartreux were imported to the United States and a pure breeding program was started. Many of these cats being born today in America today are being returned to French breeders to help purify the breed in France. This exportation to France reduces the availability of the breed in the United States.
