Fiona's mother was a "joint project" between Kim Langille, of Finnland cattery, Iris Zinck, of Folie a Deux cattery, and myself. St. Paer Nimue of Finnland arrived in North America from France, (Thank you Virginie Baerel!) and eventually graced us with a litter of kittens. Fiona was my choice from the litter, and after being shown as a kitten by her co-owner, Kim Langille, CCA awarded her 14th best Kitten Nationally and 2nd best kitten in Canada's region 3!
Fiona finished her kitten shows, and came to the USA to join the Antioch feline family. We had great hopes for her show career as an adult in TICA, but Antioch cattery had an "interruption" for four years, from 2015 to 2019. I did manage to show her as an adult in TICA, but not as often as we needed to. Because of the factors I dealt with during those years, it took awhile for Fiona to reach her Quad Grand Champion status. Despite this difficulty, she was awarded Second Best Turkish Angora and Best Black Smoke Turkish Angora in 2020.
