Azima's Classy Lady of Grimoire

Classy Lady was a kitten whom Sue Howland knew well because she looked like a small version of another cat of Barb's that Sue had known for a year. Sue had called the older girl Lady Godiva because her classic tabby pattern and colors were swirls of all the colors of Godiva chocolate -- so Sue called this little kitten with similar markings Baby Godiva. Baby Godiva became Classy Lady when she was placed with Lisa James.

According to Barb Azan's breeding log, Classy was born to Slurpy (see Misty Rose's page) on June 14, 2008, with her brother, a black smoke boy (see Jingle). Classy was the youngest of three cats (see Lord Byron and Camille) that Barb had agreed to sell to a client in Wales.

and the distinctive white under her eyes, matching the kitten photos.

She is documented unofficially by numerous photos Sue and Barb took in the summer and autumn of 2008 and in Barb's breeding log. Classy is officially documented in a CFA litter registration prepared by Barb and processed on 8/27/08, a Rabies Certificate, rabies tag, microchip tag and stickers stapled to the medical record, and the vet's invoice, all dated 10/15/08.

Nota Bene: It was Classy Lady that Barb took to the veterinarian's office just four days before an ambulance took her from her home for the last time to Intensive Care in Allentown. In fact, Barb is the person who took Lord Byron and Camille to the vet on 9/30/08 as well. It often brings tears when Sue thinks of how very much Barb was suffering at that time, and yet she did this. Humbling.
