The Chantilly-Tiffany or Chantilly/Tiffany, also known as the Chantilly or the Foreign Longhair, is a breed of cat derived mainly from cross-breeding long-haired Asians and Burmese. The breed originated in North America. This breed is considered distinct from the Asian Semi-longhair breed, the British variant. The Chantilly was thought extinct until the 1960s when two of these cats appeared during an estate sale.

Chantilly cats are characterized by moderateness. They are neither too gentle or lazy, nor too active. This is one trait that has mostly appealed to the cat fanciers and owners. However, the CT kittens are very playful and mischievous. These cats are good with children and all other pets. They would also take part in games and activities with their family members. Being a human-oriented breed, they would follow their favorite family members from room to room and vocally interact with them in a low mewling voice. However, they are reserved when they have strangers around. Chantillies love playing with toys and would steal those play items that they find exciting. They are affectionate and do not enjoy being alone, or if ignored.
