Paintedcats Moose Tracks of Traipse
DOB:  5-13-19


I've wanted to get a cat from James Lubbad for a few years and I guess that it just took "the right kitten" for me to pull the trigger -
I was so impressed with this boy at 3.5 wks old that I knew he was someone special and would be a wonderful addition to my breeding program.   Initially, I was drawn in by his large circular rosettes that were randomly spread out throughout his body and his extreme contrast.   I suspected with his darker coloring that he might be a carrier of the Charcoal allele like his sire.   My fingers were crossed for good news :)    Either way, I've never wavered in any way on this boy after the first time I saw him!
After making a commitment to get him, imagine my surprise when I found out that he in fact carry for Charcoal and Dilute(Blue) too!!    I had just neutered Baloo Bear (my Blue boy) and was having fertility issues with Dragos (my charcoal contributor) -    I guess the stars all came into alignment for this boy to come to Traipse.     As if all of this wasn't enough good news, he turns out to be pure for spots.   This boy will never create a marble yet look at those huge spots!!    We most often see this spot design on Bengals who carry marble :)     Genetic surprises can be so interesting -  This breed is never be boring to work with.
