The York Chocolate breed was started in 19 83 when a black-and-white spotted female farm cat named Blacky mated
with a longhaired black male named Smokey. Within that litter was one brown kitten, thanks to their Siamese
ancestry, and she was named Brownie. Janet Chiefari, the farm owner, took note of this unique kitten, who had
both charm and looks.
The following summer, Brownie had a litter of kittens, and one of her babies was a semi-longhaired black male
who also featured a deep brown undercoat, which was quite unique. This kitten was named Minky.
A year after that, Brownie mated with Minky, and they had a kitten named Teddy Bear, who was solid brown. They
also had a brown-and-white female named Cocoa.
Chiefari started breeding the cats and spreading the word about them, and the experimental breed was accepted
in 19 90. By 19 95, it had CFF Championship status and Canadian Cat Association Championship status as well.
