Stache has been my best friend during the 2018/19 show season ever since he started wowing the CFA Judges. We have been traveling nearly every weekend to find the best shows for us attend in order to see how high his point score can go! :)
Stache has an amazing personality and is a complete treasure to travel with. We are already seeing this personality and most of his gorgeous pelt traits pass on to his offspring -
Stache is another step closer to bengal perfection!
- Gorgeous/rich colors of Reds, Golds and Espresso
- Extremely high in Contrast and Clarity
- An Ombre effect to his Pelt coloring - Darker on top and then finishing lighter at the belly.
- Lacquer finish to his coat creating a gloss-like finish
- Beautiful and unique pattern - just like his mom and grandfather (Morpheus)
- Salvador Dali style of a heart that is melting (If you google him, you'll find him posing with a cat that looks like it might be an ALC! :)
- Incredibly soft Pelt - Silk Satin!
- Head smaller in proportion to his body - exactly what we want for our breed.
- Beautiful eyes
- Amazingly medium length, Thick tail - Not too much tapering :)
- Super Sweet - The CFA Judges tell me that he is always purring when they handle him.
- Muscular build that can be seen through the sheen of his coat as he moves!

Dennis Ganoe, Myself and Caitlyn McKenna (Marimac Bengals) at the CFA Annual Banquet - Dennis was my cheerleader for running Stache this year and always answered my questions about scoring! Caitlyn was usually left at the cattery at home - I couldn't have traveled as often and as far as I did without her support here at the cattery. Thanks to Everyone who helped us reach this goal!
