No, "The Havana Brown Is Not A Cigar." This delightful print of what appears to be a Havana Brown smoking a cigar was found on a very old German calendar many years ago. The cigar-smoking cat was used as an eye-catching theme for the Havana Brown breed booth at the 2003 International Show in Houston, TX. It has also been used as the theme of several cat shows produced by the International Havana Brown Society, CFA's oldest Havana Brown breed club.
