D*Elvdal's Jean-Paul Gaultier
Black silver blotched tabby with white,
NFO ns 09 22, male neuter
We saw pictures of JPG as a tiny kittens and he amazed us with
his funny looking ears and promising type. We had to contact his breeder
to find out if he was still available and strangely enough he was.
Thereafter we simply could forget about him :)
Since we found him in May, we had to wait half a year, but
finally he is walking on Swedish ground! We look forward to using
him in our breeding program, especially since we long have admired
the cats on mummy's side. We believe JPG would make lovely kittens
with all our girls but he gets only one chance.
JPG has a very sweet temperament and a funny
personality, being awfully curious and social.
Big thanks Sylvia for everything and especially that you were
willing to keep him in your home until he was allowed to move to Sweden.
Jeppson was a baby until about 1.5 years old when he finally
became fertile and interested in females. He has gotten four
lovely litters and has now retired so he can continue being the cuddly
lap cat that he is without the stress of dominant females and
neuters that does not accept him. His babies have gotten the best of
him and we are quite pleased that he gives traits like long bodies,
high legs, straight profiles, good chins, nice tufts and ears and
sweet, curious and charming temperaments. Pictures and links to
offspring will be added here soon!
We enjoyed every day with him. Alas, our other cats did not...
After he was neutered, he moved to a new home where he is the
only cat in the household and where he can get all that attention
and cuddle that he wants. He lives in the same village still, so
we can visit him as often as we wish. Jeppson is sooo happy!
