Do you like the look of the Asian Leopard Cat??? If you like "wild type" - This girl has it in spades!!! The only kitten shown from Traipse to get TWO FINALS out of 118 Kittens at the TIca Annual. Jeff Roberts placed her as the 6th best Kitten (and Best Bengal Kitten) and so did Mary Lise De Landstsheer.
Desdimoto is now living with my friend Chris at Speakeasy Bengals in Boston and will continue her show career there as well as being a hopeful girlfriend for the TICA BEST BENGAL 2011/2012 - Cowboy Cassanova - "Woody"!! I can't wait to see these babies!!!!

You may remember her on my website as "Marge"
TRAIPSE CLOUDED COCOA DEXTER
QUADRUPLE GRAND CHAMPION 6/13
Dexter now has over 7000 points and is a Quadruple Grand Champion! He only needs another "Best Cat" for him to achieve a "Supreme Grand Champion" title. Dex has has two already (Melissa Parsley and Canie Brooks) so we are all hopeful :)
TRAIPSE THRICE HEARTED KING
FINALED 8 of 118 Kittens at
TICA Annual 2013
Tripp is one of my all time favorites - 118 kittens competed in this years annual and the judge from Brazil- Alberto Leal, found Tripp to be the 8th best kitten at the show!!!
Prior to this, Tripp received 10 finals out of 16 Rings in June 2013 before this Annual. What an amazing boy - and still a kitten!
Now living in Norway with my new friend Marita, we all have high hopes for him to show well in Europe and start Marita's breeding program off with a big Bang! Good luck to both of you!
DADAELIS BLACK DAHLIA OF TRAIPSE
QUADRUPLE GRAND CHAMPION - 7/12
Dahlia was the 2nd Best Bengal in the NW for the 2012/2013 show season!!!
At the TICA Annual she added another jewel to her crown by being the 5th BEST CAT of 97 as judged by Amanda Bright of Canada!!!
TRAIPSE COEUR D LANCOME
KITTEN - 4 Finals out of 8 rings 6/13
I put this girl in the show on Sunday because I wanted more kittens to compete against and I was curious how she'd do against her brother :) She was already in the catalog for the kitten litter match contest so it was allowed. She received as many finals as her brother Tripp did! Go Girl :) This is going to be a keeper girl for me at this point and I will be repeating this pairing!
TRAIPSE COEUR D LOREAL
KITTEN - 2 Finals out of 8 rings 6/13
Cybele/Max Factor girl - This girl has the best pattern of the two girls and darkest outer ring contrast. She also has the sweeter personality :) She has a really nice head, boning, structure etc. Getting 2 finals when competing with her brother and sister is really amazing ans shows the consistency of this litter.
THIS KITTEN IS FOR SALE TO A SHOW/BREEDER HOME
JUNGLEKATZ CHUNKY MOTO OF TRAIPSE
DOUBLE GRAND CHAMPION 2/13
Moto is just the picture of "Wild"! He's just a sweetheart though :) His ears, "best Nose leather", Head shape, tail are his best features.... He's just a total package and has an amazing ticked coat that is the perfect look for his body style. Best Nose Leather award at ON SAFARI 2013.
DADAELIS IMAGINE OF TRAIPSE
TRIPLE GRAND CHAMPION 2/13
Maddie is just amazing.... she has it all from contrast, head type, boning and a SUPER sweet personality! We hope Maddie will bring in some amazing babies for Traipse.
TRAIPSE FROU FROU
Frou Frou (also known as Missy) is now a Champion! She competed against her brother Dexter during this last year so it was hard for her to get the recognition she would have otherwise achieved. She is now pregnant (hopefully) and will start producing gorgeous Snows with her new boyfriend, Supreme Grand Champion Sno Explorer!
DADAELIS JACKS SPARROW OF TRAIPSE
Sparrow became a Champion during her first outing as an adult.... She's now in the breeding program but may come back out again if the timing works out!

TRAIPSE MAXIMUM VELOCITY (Obi-Wan)

Obi-Wan had one of the best spot patterns, coloring and contrast that I've seen - VERY clear coated that reminds me of an actual Leopard!
