Champion
Sapphirestar Yeti

Seal mitted Snowshoe
4th generation Snowshoe
A huge and rather chunky fluff ball. Yeti suits his name. I am very excited that he is my first chocolate carrying full Snowshoe. Yeti is the culmination of our outcross line to our much loved Siamese Teasel - Lynkinaca Taicligh Tito.  Yeti is a big cuddly boy and his kits have his people loving temperament. Yeti has been made a Champion he does not enjoy showing though, so has now retired.

Lola
Sapphirestar Ying-Yang - Seal mitted Snowshoe
Lola is a very pretty mitted girl with a white spot on her face.  She is quite independent, a bit fiesty, but nicely proportioned and very affectionate.
I am very proud of Lola as she is fourth generation from my Siamese boy Teasel.  She and her siblings are my first kittens to reach full Snowshoe status from the new bloodlines I have introduced.

Lola won first in the kitten class at her first show. She has low inbreeding and carries chocolate.

Winter is the daughter of the gorgeous Sasha, who is lilac tabby point Champion British Shorthair and my sweet Champion boy Frostbite. Winter is first generation Snowshoe and she carries chocolate, so with 0% inbreeding she is an exciting addition to my breeding program.
Clever girl Winter - a red card day at her first show and won Best in Show Pedigree Pet! So pleased that so many Judges also saw how special this little girl is - she stole the show at the Croydon. Mother of Charlie and Kami.  Grandmother of Indy, Loki and Monty
