74d TOS d 32
Andromeda is our first homebred Queen and is Io’s daughter from her 2014 mating with Sue & Gerry Smiths Kade. Andromeda is a 5th Generation (F5) Chocolate Tonkinese Colour Restriction (Mink Coated) Tonkinese. Having been genetics tested at Langford she has been proven to carry blue and is also PRA negative like all my other queens. Being Mink Coated and 5th Generation she is on the full (CS) register with the GCCF.
She stole our hearts from a young age, being a gentle natured kitten that whilst is more than able to hold her own against her boisterous brother Loke, takes everything in her stride. In the coming months we will watch her development with baited breath and hope to see more of her personality evolve.
In the near future I plan to slowly introduce Andromeda to the show circuit and later in 2015 she will become our 3rd breeding queen.
2-8-2014: 1st & BOB Tonkinese Kitten – Andromeda’s maiden show at only 14 weeks old to the day. She too had a stonker of a day, I had already said to John we’d be lucky to get anything as the number of cats in the misc classes were big, so I was more than pleased when she came away with this little haul. Whilst it was a very uncomfortable day with the heat and humidity and this did not favour the cats, I think they all performed admorably.
27-8-2014: 1st & BOB Tonkinese Kitten, 3 1st in her Misc classes and 1 2nd Misc – Andromeda is showing herself to be an excellent show kitten, taking the entire day in her stride. Her overtly friendly personality doing her no harm as she flirts with the judges and aiding her to win in large side classes. We’re looking forward to showing her in adult classes next year!
28-3-2015: CC Tonkinese Adult – Andromeda’s maiden Adult show and she acheived her first Challenge Certificate against stiff opposition towards her Champion title. We were obviously thrilled and impressed at how she coped with the conditions at the show.
6-6-2015: CC Tonkinese Adult – Her second Adult show was a smasher. As it was a joint show she was entered in to both Tonkinese Adult classes and came away with her needed 2 CC’s and is therefore now a Champion. If that wasn’t enough she did us proud in her side classes obtaining 3 1st’s, 3 2nd’s and a 4th place in very large classes of , 9 and 10’s. We couldn’t be more proud of our homebred girl 🙂
