Antioch Turkish Angoras

Our Gals!

Our girls are important in our breeding program because we tend to keep them whole
longer than our males. The girls enjoy winning at the shows and then have free run
of the house together with any kittens we are raising.

We are grieving the loss of Antioch It Ain't Necessarily So! also known as "Nessie", our sweet diva. In the summer of 2014, she earned her title as a Supreme Grand Champion. She ruled the house and still owns my heart! She was full of the joy of life, but left us for heaven. She suddenly had a very rare form of cancer, and despite the efforts of the University vets, we could not save her. When that became apparent, I did not let her suffer. I can't bear to remove her from this page and I expect to be with her again someday.

Tess is Nessie's daughter, and I can see Nessie occasionally when I look at her. She is not the diva, however, but has her own sweet, rather peaceful personality. And yes, she dotes on Steve's puppy, Hope, who was growing up in our house while Tess was losing her mother. Who says dogs and cats can't be friends? I hoped to show Tess, but she does not have a show cat personality. As an orphaned girl, perhaps a bit of her confidence was affected, poor baby. But we will see what her future holds as a mother.
She is Gus' sister!

Antioch Naica Cristal, or "Phoebe", is retring, and will be spayed. Her proud pappa is Bastra Boryea Yusovich. His Russian bloodlines give "Phoebe" her long luxurious coat and a very relaxed personality. Phoebe is a little doll, cute, petite, and a lover of dairy food! "Phoebe" has big blue limpid eyes and a bright and cheery attitude about life.

Thais, pronounced "Tice", is a pretty older girl. She came from a cattery that was closing, and she has a Bulgarian pedigree that is only a few generations away from Turkish imports. She's another pretty little calico, and we hope she will be a mama soon! Thanks, Roza.

Fiona is our little French princess, in fact, she likes me to call her "Princessa". She comes to us from Kim Langille, of Canada, and is a small black smoke girl. Fiona is best friends with Lucy. Recently, Fiona became a double grand champion in TICA show rings, and we are waiting eagerly to see if Fiona will be a momcat for us. Thanks, Kim, for entrusting her to us.

Lucy is a little butterfly. She flits, she floats, she comes for attention and then flies away again. She is an excellent mother, and her first litter was beautiful, smart, and personable. Lucy comes from Sue Howland of Bizans, and I am very happy with her! Thanks so much, Sue!
