The snowshoe is a rare breed of cat that is said to be extremely outgoing, personable and affectionate. They're good cats for families, including those with children, because they are a very laid-back and people-oriented breed. Another reason for their popularity is that snowshoes thoroughly enjoy attention.
Snowshoes also generally get along well with other cats as long as they've been properly socialized early in life. This breed is highly intelligent and can be easy to train. They're known to be a rather talkative breed of cat and their coats are soft and easy to maintain. Very few genetic health problems are associated with the snowshoe breed.
