The Snowshoe cat breed was developed in the late 1960s by Siamese

Shorthair with a Siamese to produce a sturdy, pointed cat with white
markings on the face, chest and feet. The breed was further developed
by breeder Vikki Olander of Norfolk, Virginia. In 1974 CFF and ACA
accepted the Snowshoe as an experimental breed. Snowshoe obtained
championship status from CFF in 1983 and from ACFA IN 1990.
