When I saw her picture at a week old I immediately was drawn to her and I named her snowball.  We watched her grow and she certainly matured into this lovely van colored  brown classic tabby and white.  Her type is outstanding and she has a wonderful expression and profile.  She is a very special girl.  Thank you goes to Linda for gifting her to me. She goes back to some very social cats of mine. Barney being one of those.

I am thrilled to add silver to my breeding program after not having one for years. Rosie is a gorgeous example of our breed as well as sweet and gentle.  She has a gorgeous head, silky coat , clear silver color and boning and body. She will be a great asset to our program. I would like to thank Elaine for parting with her and allowing her to join our home.

Wilma is up there with one of the best females I have bred. She is gentle and sweet and also very beautiful.  She has an amazing coat and color, lovely and shaggy like it should be. She is very balanced and proportioned with no feature being exaggerated (well except for her Lynx tips). She is just simply amazing

Winx is a gorgeous brown classic tabby female. She represents eight generations of our breeding on the dam side. She is perfectly balanced and very hard to fault. At her first show at four months old she was highest scoring kitten in show.  She exceeds my expectations. Not only that she is sweet and loving.

Well. What can I say. I have waited forever for a silver patch tabby and white and thanks to two dear friends I created one. She is absolutely perfect in every way.  Her pedigree is very special to me. My first stud male Kenworth, who is near 15, his son who is almost eight, and her father who is four.  It is so important to have this history and longevity in the lines. I look for great things from this beautiful girl.

I never thought I would ever get Amazing Grace bred since she is as big as most males.  I did and she did not disappoint.  I am keeping this little jewel, Ave Maria, as she is an exquisite example of the Maine Coon.  She has large expressive eyes, amazing coat, color, pattern and all the type she needs to represent our breed.  She is going to follow in her mother's footsteps and be a nice sized girl with the beautiful type I love.  She is a lap kitty and purrs non-stop when you pet her.

Zenyatta was named for the famous filly who was named Horse of The Year in 2010.   I love horse racing so I thought it was very fitting to name this girl after my favorite filly.  Zenyatta (or Ya Ya as I call her) is probably up there with the best females I have bred. She has a long body, huge ears, painted on pattern, and beautiful head.  She is the matriarch in our house and that is a spot she has rightfully earned.  I have bred Zenyatta to different males and each time the kittens are just fabulous.  That shows how valuable Zenyatta is.  Zenyatta is out of Highlander Shining star and is the second generation Highlander.  Her daughters are fabulous and the females out of her in breeding programs are:

 GC Highlander Tex's Miracle (at Highlander)

GC Highlander Rachel Alexandra (at Highlander)

Highlander Ruffian of Tropikoons

GC Highlander Joyeux Noelle of Angtini (co owned with Linda Murphy and Coleen and Paul Wolfe)

Highlander Single Malt of Sarajen (with Teri Matzkin)

GC Highlander Junie B Jones of Gaylton (with Susan and Richard Southards)
RW Highlander Alysheba of Angtini
Second Best Maine Coon Kitten Nationally 2013-2014
(with Linda Murphy)

GC Highlander Twinkle Star of Cavallino (with Junko Tsuda Japan)
**OF NOTE":  These girls above are from Zenyatta's three litters out of different sires.  Without them, we would not have these fabulous girls.  GC Trutails Texas Hold'em of Highlander (Miracle and Rachel) GC RW Highlander Peterbuilt (Joyeux Noelle, Junie and Single Malt) and GC McPride John Duke Wayne ( Alysheba and Twinkle Star)
Zenyatta achieved the highest honor that a cat can receive Distinguished  Merit.  
She accomplished this with five grand champion females from three different litters and three different sires.  This is a dream come true for us.

DOB 3/24/13
SIRE: GC McPride John Duke Wayne
DAM: Highlander Zenyatta

August 2014 - heart scan clear

Alysheba had a wonderful show year this year.  We are all so proud of her achievements.  It is difficult for a girl to compete with the boys and Alysheba held her own.  She only missed a National Win by 20 points.  She is a winner in our hearts.  Alysheba has a beautiful litter of kittens right now and she was meant to be a mom.  She lives with my wonderful friend Linda of Angtini Maine Coons where she is loved and spoiled.
