Helmi Flick, who I admire greatly, chose my cat Candy (co-owned with and bred by Bruce Alexy of Alexy Abyssinians) as the example of an Abyssinian for the annual 2009-2010 issue of the Kittens USA Magazine!
RW QGC Alexy Braeside Candytuft of Aksum is a chocolate Abyssinian who is 2009 TICA's International Best Chocolate Abyssinian and 2009 TICA SE Region's Best Abyssinian. She is the 4th Best Abyssinian in the U.S. and the 2nd Best Female Abyssinian in the U.S. All of that was while only being shown for half of the show year.
Candy has had one beautiful litter of kittens, two of which have been shown this show year have won Top Ten Ribbons already. One of them is a chocolate female named Aksum Tiny Dancer destined to eventually replace Candy as a breeding queen once Candy is retired. The other is a beautiful ruddy male named Aksum Smoke on the Water who carries the chocolate gene and the dilute gene, the only one we know of in the world with these special genetics.
Helmi Flick has photographed Candy's beautiful babies too, and captured their personality amazingly well, as always!
Thank you, Helmi!
