"FRANK, THE LEGEND."
As you may already know as an advocate, I am an ANIMAL LOVER!! I'll soon begin to share part of my world, some pictures of the cats I got now, and those gone to Heaven. (((I still miss them all a great deal!!)))
Let me introduce Frank, the legend to all of you!!... He is a memorable cat, a Seal-Point Siamese. He was born in March, 1995. At this point, he is 16 years and 5 months old. I take great care of him. We have been inseparable pals, and he is my best friend. Let me tell you an inspirational tale that it will impress you a great deal!! I've recently met a lady who has been cat breeder for over 25 years. Her name is Gaby. She breeds one of the most spectacular Siamese cats around. I was particularly interested in a Foreign White Style Siamese, which pure white colour with deep sapphire blue eyes, was created in England not too long ago. Gaby breeds these kind of Foreign Whites, plus other traditional colours of Siamese and Oriental cats. Her fine cats are very small, almost like dwarfs. They are about 3 to 4 pounds the most, when they become adults. Don, my companion, and I went to her apartment to take a good look at her fine cattery. She is an excellent cat breeder, and her fine cats are superb. But what it really amazes me the most is her knowledge about GENETICS.
I told Gaby about our dear cat, FRANK, THE LEGEND. Then, she began to tell us about HIS MEMORABLE FAMILY TREE.
In January, 1995, I happened to be out of town for a while. I was heading for a trip to THE BAHAMAS ISLANDS. So, I called my friend Dix, who was another excellent Siamese Cat Breeder, and asked her for the service to keep my dear cats, Daisy and Blueberry in her house for one month. She agreed. At that time, Dix had a superb male Seal-Point Siamese with papers of his fine ancestry, his FAMILY TREE, as far as great-great-grandparents. This precious cat was a great stud of her fine cattery. His name was Lucky. Looking at his fine ancestry in his papers, LUCKY was the son of HARPO. Harpo was the son of YANKEE DOODLE DUNDY, who was the son of his mother, LEGEND, and his father, SINGA BALLAD from the FINEST SIAMESE CATTERY IN THE USA. SINGA CATTERY was established in the early 20th Century by a fine American lady who brought her first Siamese cats from England. She was very interested in GENETICS. So, by crossing the best English Siamese cats, she created the BEST SIAMESE BLOODLINE IN THE USA. This lady passed away, yet offsprings of her best Siamese cats are still around throughout the USA nowadays. Yes!! I am talking about the origin of the new style Siamese cats in the USA, which were created by this lady in the beginning of the 20th Century. The Thai or Apple Head Siamese is the old fashion Siamese. Then, there is a new style Siamese with a different kind of head, body, and general personality that establish them -as the Modern Siamese Cats. I am proud to have found out that my dear cat, Frank has got the best genes on the side of his father, Lucky whose grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great-grandfather and other ancestors were the GREATEST GRAND CHAMPIONS IN THE USA.
Frank's mother was Daisy. She was an average old style Thai or Apple Head Siamese cat. Daisy and Lucky -Frank' parents- were both Seal-Point Siamese. In my next entry, I shall post pictures of Lucky, Yankee Doodle Dundy, Legend, Singa Ballad and other photos of Frank's Family Tree. I don't have pics of Harpo, Lucky's daddy.
FRANK, THE LEGEND IS INDEED, A MEMORABLE CAT WITH A GREAT AMERICAN ANCESTRY.
