EXEMPLARY SIRES AND QUEENS
October 2001 - Our first presentation of our Exemplary Sires and Queens is Prissey. Prissey was the Best Traditional Siamese Cat in or 1990 show, and was owned by Lorene Evans from Marlin, Texas. Unwavering, true love for her precious cats and enthusiastic appreciation of TCA, Inc. set Lorene apart. We were always close friends.
Lorene has since passed away, but her support of the Traditional Cats lives on though the bloodlines of her Prissey.
EXEMPLARY SIRES AND QUEENS
By Dorothy Fitzpatrick
Earlier we did a presentation about Loreen Evans in this section. Dorothy has so nicely added to it.
"The enclosed photos are of my Queen. I want to tell you that Queen is a "person" cat. She is so smart and she talks all the time. We carry on a conversation. She does a "wah-wah" talk, which is a low sort of raspy talk. She talks over the telephone and listens for a response.
She is an indoor cat. Mrs. Evans said Queen’s grandmother was a talker. When I got her, she was a tiny, tiny baby. I was to get one from an earlier litter but a person from Germany got that kitten. That kitten won a lot of first places in Europe, was featured in an Ad (TCA’s add) in a cat magazine. Mrs. Evans said that cat was Queen’s half sister.
MOON OVER MIAMI
TCA, INC. began due to my search for the Original, Old Style, Traditional Siamese I had had before. This quest of John & I began in 1985 and continued on with no results until I wrote a letter to CATS Magazine (now out of business). The publication of my letter resulted in responses from 19 breeders.
The kitten we decided on was Appleseed Mi Serenity of Tullycrine, and her breeder was Laura Kelley. Serenity is still very much with us today, enjoying the blissful life of the Tullycrine family.
Laura Kelley had dedicated herself to gathering quality, breedable, adult Siamese, of the types that I named Traditional Siamese and Classic Siamese. As all of us know the numbers of these valuable cats were very few, so her acquisitions were few and far between.
- Serenity’s Dam
Though Laura’s was a small cattery, the cats within it were of extreme value to the breed. The true test of an ethical breeder is to breed only the cats that are of good quality instead of breeding anything that moves. Laura was totally true to this ideology.
