Body The body is medium sized and of medium length, almost square. It is muscular, solid and appears lithe. It is surprisingly heavy for its size. The back is slightly arched.
The legs are firm and muscular, the paws are oval.
The tail is of medium length, strong at the base and tapers slightly to a rounded tip.
When viewed from the front, the head is heart-shaped with great width between the eyes. The rise of the eye brows comprises the upper curves of the heart-shape, the soft contours of both sides of the face, which continue to the chin, complete the heart-shape. The profile is curved. The nose is of medium length and slightly curved downwards above the nose leather (lion-like). Chin and cheek bones are strongly developed.
Ears The ears are large, broad at the base and slightly rounded, set high. The inside of the ears is little furnished, the outside is furnished with short and dense hairs.
Eyes Round, widely opened eyes, which appear almost oversized to the face. They are brilliant and expressive. A luminous green is preferred, amber is tolerated.
Coat The single coat is short to medium, lustrous and fine. It lies close to the body. The coat has a tendency to part along the back, when the cat moves.
Colour varieties Uniform silver-blue, lustrous.
On the entire body there is a clearly visible silver tipping. Where the coat is shorter, the silver sheen is intensified.
