Nightshade

I would like to say thank you for updating your site to better describe this wonderful breed. I was the one who pointed you in the right direction. I did not set out to get a York Chocolate kitten. In fact, I did not set out to get a kitten at all.

I was walking through the park one day, and I came across a girl that looked to be about sixteen or seventeen years old. In her arms was a very thin kitten. I commented on how cute he was, and was very taken by surprise when she dropped him into my arms and said, "You want him?"

Another picture of my baby boy..

I looked down at the small bundle of chocolate brown fur in my arms. I said yes. She explained that she couldn't care for him anymore. Now, this cat looked too good to be a crossbreed. So, I began my research on long haired cat breeds. It was only a short time before I realized that my cat was very rare.

Two months later, and my little Nightshade is the most wonderful animal I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. Why the name Nightshade? She said his name was Cuddles, and that was the first thing to change.

Thanks Miranda for visiting and sharing your story.. However, I must add a comment. Nightshade is a fine cat but almost certainly not a purebred cat and not a York Chocolate cat. There are some great looking chocolate coloured cats out there and nearly all of them are mixed breed or random bred cats, moggies. You need registration papers and a pedigree to say a cat is purebred. Sorry if that hurts a bit but it probably needs to be said in case it misleads other visitors....Michael (Admin)

DNA testing
by: Michael

Hi Miranda. There are no DNA tests currently available (Sept 2011) to test for a cat breed. Please try and stick to the truth.

After locating a breeder amd allowing them to take a long hard look at my cat (Nightshade) and having him genticly tested, he was found to infact YES, be a York Chocolate. He was most likely stolen.

LOL!

This isn't a York Chocolate Cat. They're a very rare - and very new - breed that's not yet accepted by any registry in the US. You wouldn't find one in a park being held from some kid - are you KIDDING me??

Michael - please remove this post as this is NOT a York Chocolate. Not even close!
