GC - Traipse Tempered in Flame
CFA Grand Champion (GC) - Jan. 2020
If you have the time, take a look at the photo's of Flame as a kitten. At birth, there was no indication of what was coming.... I was very surprised to see how she was turning out a few weeks later.
Flame is probably my best example of both incredibly high contrast and an incredibly clear coat. She also has the texture of coat that her sire has along with a beautifully flowing rosette pattern. She is a beautiful girl!
Flame came out of CFA's current BEST BENGAL and a NATIONAL WINNER contender (Top 25 cats in the country) for 2019! Her mother Chammie is also a Champion and has an incredible high level of contrast for a Lynx Point - we hope to continue to bring this beautiful trait forward in his offspring.
Flame achieved her Grand Champion status in Seaside, OR in January 2020. She had been competeing for 1 of 3 top spots out of 30+ other shorthair contenders - So, getting to 200 points is not an easy achievement! Especially for a female because we usually breed them around this age. (Boys have a much easier time of getting to this level)
