"Chip" is a seal point Himalayan male, born in November of 2001. Chip is a beautiful example of the breed, with wonderful body and boning, a huge flowing coat, lovely head, and best of all, those deep and VERY blue eyes!
Although he was not shown much as a kitten, he ended his kitten career with a wonderful show, ending up as highest scoring long-hair, and 3rd highest scoring kitten overall at that show!
He followed that up with a wonderful start to his adult career. As an Open, he was awarded a lovely silver plate from the Sunkats show for being the best Himalayan in show, competing with 10 other cats, all older than him. He went on to Grand very quickly, earning his Grand Champion title at the age of 9 months.
Recently, Chip (and his baby sister, Joy) had a chance at stardom... They were invited to be part of a photo shoot here in town, to be used in the Iams "Your Cat" magazine coming up in the Winter 2003 issue. The article will be titled "The Handsome Himalayan", which seems appropriate!
We continued to show Chip during the 2002-2003 show season, and he ended the season as 6th Best Cat in the Northwest region, AND the BEST Persian in the region! We are very proud of him...
You can read more about "Chip" and his campaign in "Hip, Hip, Hair-ay" on PandEcats.com.
Chip has just recently started siring for us, and his first children are in the show ring. We're very pleased with the babies he's been producing, and hope for good things from them! :-)
