Physical characteristics

The Tiffanie is a common name for the Asian Semi-Longhair cat. They have the same physical characteristics as the Asian shorthair cats, except for the coat length. Overall, Tiffanies look like a longhair Burmilla.


Tiffanies love fun and games, but they are generally more placid than their shorthair relatives. They are not very demanding, but will always spend with you as much time as they can. They will patiently wait for you to come home in the evening. Extremely devoted and loving, they are true lap cats. Asian Semi-Longhairs are also very playful, intelligent and adaptable.

Coat and grooming

The coat of Tiffanies is silky and soft. It is longer at the neck ruff and plume-like tail. Weekly grooming is necessary to keep it in a good condition.
The coat colours and patterns are the same you can find in the Asian cat.


Asian Semi-Longhair cats are naturally robust and healthy.
