Highlander She Wore Blue Velvet

Blue tabby
9-6-10
SIRE:  GC RW Shubacoons Kenworth of Highlander, DM
DAM: GC The Cat Spa Leilani of Highlander, DM

Ok, so what was I thinking keeping a blue tabby?  But, if you have the pleasure of seeing Velvet in person you would understand.  She meets the standard to a T and has the most beautiful coat, color and pattern.  She is one of the best blue tabbies I have ever seen.  She is also VERY large, 9.25lbs at four months old.  She is a beast.  Velvet is by far the sweetest cat with the most gentle personality.  She is winning in the show hall at four months old following in the footsteps of many kittens out of this breeding.

Very sad news on Velvet.  She cycled early and developed a uterine infection.  We tried to treat her, but it just was not meant to be.  She is now spayed.

CH Howlyn GOTALLTHE Rubys of Highlander

DOB 12/20/09

DAM: Howlyn Holly go Lightly

Ruby is from TICA Breeders Lynn and Howard.  I waited for Ruby for a couple of years and finally she was born.  Ruby is a beautiful silver patched tabby and white with a long rectangular body, nice boxy square muzzle and beautiful long shaggy coat.  Ruby is a little vixen and keeps all the girls in the house stirred up.  She loves to run and play chase and I think will stay as a kitten forever.  She will make beautiful kittens when matched with our males as her pedigree is a total outcross for us.

Heart Echo Clear 12/2010

Star is the daughter of Miraja and has many of her attributes.  I named Star for the perfect white star she has on her back.  She throws this star to most of her with white kittens, and I find this endearing.  Star was almost a kitten regional winner, but I had to stop showing her as she cycled so much and wanted to bred.  This was very disappointing to us, but like her mother Miraja she is a fabulous mother.

I picked up Tex in Peoria IL in June.  When he came out of his show tent, I was blown away.  I was never much for solids, but this boy cannot be denied. 

He is massive and has beautiful coat factor. He has a broad square muzzle, beautiful clean profile and large ears finished with lynx tips.

    

The best thing about him is his personality.  He gives you wet kisses and likes to hug you with his big old paws.At the show he made 5 finals including a BEST CAT.  

He is settling in nicely and we will make babies with him soon.  Thank you Trudie and Dennis for parting with him and for another wonderful Trutails baby.

Rufus is a very special male that I bred whom I co-owned with Mckittycreek Maine Coons.  I am very proud of him as he was out of a line that I brought to the US from the UK (Coonflakes Tom Jones of Highlander).  Rufus produced some of the most beautiful babies.  I have shared his offspring with many and will remain proud of what he has done for our breed.

Brown tabby
DOB 3/25/12
SIRE: GC Trutails Texas Hold'Em of Highlander
DAM:  Highlander Zenyatta

heart scan clear 2/2013
Second Scan February 2014 Clear

How could she not stay? One of five brown tabby females in her litter she stood out from day one with her chunky muzzle and vibrant color and pattern. She is a young baby, but I can tell she is going to be just breathtaking like her mother and father. I am happy to have something out of Tex after our devastating loss of him to cancer so young. Her name is 'Miracle' in honor of her father as she was conceived a week before Tex crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. With sadness, there is always light and she is my hope for the future.  Miracle became a grand champion at eight months old.  Quite an accomplishment for a female.  But the bigger part is she did it in two shows with her sister showing right along with her.  And they then went on to become grand champions in the same ring, a moment I will not forget.
 
After her c-section for her first litter, we have regretfully not been able
to get Miracle bred.  She has found a fabulous forever home and we will miss her sweet face.  But we have
her daughter Amazing Grace and her sister Rachel Alexandra to carry on her legacy

Heart Echo clear 12/2010

Spanky is a stunning black and white boy who is massive in size.  I think his head is as big as a basketball.  He has giant ears and his lynx tips are so big they curl.  Spanky is as sweet and gentle as they come.  He loves for you to hold him and cuddle.  Black and White is not a normal color for me, but you cannot deny this cat as he is the quintessential Maine Coon boy.  I co-own Spanky with Mckittycreek Maine Coons.  He is very special to me as he is half out of a line I brought in that created beautiful cats.  I have shared many offspring from this line and the legacy will live on.

SIRE: Champion DK Rushcutters Jackpot of Julescoon

Sadly Donovan developed bladder crystals and had to be neutered. 
He is now a happy, spoiled pet.

An e-mail from Great Britain at the beginning of April 2012 from Robert and Julie of Julescoon Maine Coons asking for a breeding male has turned into a wonderful friendship and the trading of kittens. After many phone conversations with Robert and Julie we found we have the same core values and breeding practices. 

Robert flew to the United States the first weekend of May and brought us our bundle of joy.  I will never forget the moment that I opened the carrier in the airport and took him out.  He was purring and gave me a big old wet kiss.  It is surely instant love. 

 He just purrs all the time.  He has great depth of chest and a long body and tail.  His pattern is painted on and he has the rich warm copper tones with black background.  His ears are large and set perfectly on his head and he has a strong muzzle and nice profile with a deep chin. 

 

Robert enjoyed his visit and he and Jules will return in the coming months for another holiday with us.  I cannot wait to have more fun with wonderful people.

Redmond, Redmond, Redmond. 

 What a doll.  He has the best personality and he and Peterbuilt are fast friends.   He eats like someone is going to steal his food and delights in making Peterbuilt chase him around with the toy in his mouth.   He is a man in every way.  Beautiful mahogany red color with large tall ears finished with lynx tips.  He has Long rectangular body and great boning.  He is approaching 10 lbs and just turned 5 months old.   At his first show at just four months in a class of 17 Maine Coon kittens, he not only made 5 of 6  finals, but also earned a BEST KITTEN (his sister beat him in one ring).   This boy is going to be lovely with my girlie girls and I look for spectacular babies from him.  I would like to thank all the breeders involved with this pedigree and look forward to working with all in the future.

 I have had cats that love to show, but this cat epitomizes a top show cat.  Always a gentleman and just loves the whole experience.  He loves all the judges and shows that by swirling his body and butting.  He is sweet and engaging.  I am truly blessed to have him in my home.  He is an adult now after being highest scoring kitten in show many times and in the adult class his first time out he became a Grand Champion.

Waiting always seems to be the hardest part. But the waiting is over and she is here. What a doll. She is spunky and sweet all rolled into one. I have always admired her father Finnegan who is now 11 years old and still making beautiful babies. So, I decided to name her after him by choosing one of the main characters in the Novel Great Expectations. I am thrilled beyond words with my baby "Stella".  Newsflash, Stella's father is now a Distinguished Merit sire.  This is one of the highest achievements for a breeding male.  Estella says she is proud of her father.  The last grand of 15 required is out of a female from Highlander.  This is very fitting that we now have a Finn daughter.

Rachel has an in your face personality and she showed so beautifully.  Rachel and Miracle are products of THREE generations of Highlander on the DAM side.  I am so proud of this.  They are both due to have their first kittens on the same day for their first litters. These girls do everything together. To say I am excited is an understatement.  These girls are products of what I have worked so hard for.  Thank you Trudie of Trutails for dad Tex.  The blend is beautiful.  Rachel also became a grand champion at eight months old in the same ring as her sister, a moment I will not forget.

Barney?..  What can I say?  The most elegant, beautiful, large boy with the most endearing personality.  What a love.  He is constantly licking my nose and placing his arms around my neck for a big kiss.  He loves Peterbuilt and Bentley and the three of them chase and play all the time.  He is a deep rich mahogany red with a big boxy muzzle and large ears finished with lynx tips.  I searched long and hard for a breeder that had documented testing and Bettina had many year of documented HCM tests on Barney's entire pedigree.  I would like to thank Bettina for parting with this treasure.  We are thrilled beyond words.
 
Barney's first children have arrived.  A litter of seven and a litter of nine. 
I cannot say how thrilled we are. 
They are beautiful and sweet just like Barney

Rachel Alexandra is one of a kind and her daughter Izzabella is not far off.    I am so happy that I have a female out of Rachel Alexandra in my program.  Izzabella and her sister Kassandra (who is with dear friend Jeri Zottoli and has made finals in every show she has attended) are the two last kittens out of Rachel Alexandra.  Izzabella is a character just like her mother.  She has her father's size and defined muzzle and her mother's gorgeous pattern and ears.  She is as near to perfect as I have seen.    She is going to make stunning kittens and I cannot wait to see what she produces.

Sometimes the best things in life are surprises and this gem was a surprise.  His breeder Teri sent a picture saying "look at these four darling red and white males" and look I did.  I immediately contacted her and begged her not to sell one of them as a pet. Teri just laughed and said he was mine!   He is out of a female that I gave to her and her father, Red Buttons, holds a special place in my heart.    I contacted Anne Jones daughter and asked her to name him for me.  Her mother Anne Jones is very special to me and her passing was devastating.  I was hoping by naming a cat after her that she would look down from heaven and smile.  So Angelo it is in honor of Anne and her special cat Red Buttons.
 
Angelo is a very balanced cat with a perfect profile and deep mahogany red coloring.  He got the best of his mother and his father is shining through in his size and special details.  He is going to be very large as he is 5.5 pounds at 11 weeks old.  He will add that beautiful expression and profile to our breeding program and I am truly blessed to have him.

Peterbuilt or "Petie" as I call him was born 1/17/11.  I knew the moment he came out that he was special.  Petie has painted on pattern, beautiful head type, great boning, and huge lynx tips.  When my friends saw him the remarks were "he needs a girdle" which translates to he is "large" built just like his father Kenworth.   His mother is a beautiful cat and the breeding between these two was very special.  I am in love with Peterbuilt and look for great things from him in the future.  Petie will replace his father  Kenworth who was retired after seven years here at Highlander.  He has taken a space on my pillow at night just like his father has done all these years.  Petie now has his first children on the ground and they are stunning.  I am so very happy.  You can see Petie at shows around as he still loves to go and show off.  He will be the Maine Coon Breed Ambassador at the 2012 CFA World Cat Show.  He will also participate in a grooming seminar with me at the helm.  Stop by and see Petie.  He will give you a head butt and a kiss.
