Come Say Hello in Augusta, GA This Weekend (Sept 19-20)

We are showing our newest chocolate Abyssinian female kitten this weekend, Dancer, who is already a veteran of two large shows - the TICA Southeast Regional in Raleigh, NC and the International Annual in Orlando, FL.

We also will have Dancer's intended mate, Temur Khan, a chocolate male kitten who was also at both shows but only entered in the Southeast Regional.

And last but not least, Alexy Hot Rod Lincoln of Aksum (aka Linc or Hot Rod) will be showing his stuff as a New Traits Abyssinian. Linc is a sex-linked red male Abyssinian. We know he is also chocolate and carries cinnamon and dilute thanks to UC Davis DNA testing. UC Davis also tests for genetic diseases such as PKDef (causes kidney failure) and PRA (causes blindness) and he is genetically free of those as well.

All of our Abys are friendly happy cats and we would all love for you to come by and say hello! The show is Saturday 10am to 4pm and Sunday from 9am to 3:30pm and is at the North Augusta Activities Center, 100 Riverview Park Drive, North Augusta, South Carolina 29841. See you there!

UPDATE: Dancer had a good show, ending up with five finals ribbons. Temur Khan got his first ribbon in the very last ring of the show! It seems he is finally growing into those BIG ears! We enjoyed talking to old friends at the show and got to meet the owners of Sky's littermate in person. We introduced the Abyssinians to people who had never seen them before, always a pleasure! Dancer happily went to strangers to be held and petted, as is typical with the Abys. Linc was happy to be held by a couple of people who came by to admire his color, strong athletic body and sweet, good nature. All in all, a good show.
