More Taltos Photos

Taltos has long been retired from the show ring; he was raised with our son and his dog Mac as well as our first queen CH Dar Morev's Grainne of Dewisplear. Grainne picked our son Joel and Taltos has always had real zest for life. He came back to live with us for a while when he was over a year old, already neutered we decided to see if he would enjoy the show hall. I remember the first day we let him sit, second day I walked him around and let him take in the sites. The next show he got winner's ribbons, made finals as an open and took on the show hall with all he had. In his mind, all the people were there just for him. From that time on he never took the smile off his face, never met a stranger he didn't like. We had a whole year like that; I've never had so much fun showing a cat as we did with Taltos. He is now back living his life with our son and his boys. You can see what I'm talking about from his photos, there was many a show we had 10 to 15 spectators surrounding us most of the day. Taltos was Best Maine Coon and 11 th Best premier in our Region during the 2004-2005 show season. Every time we show a cat for regional or national awards we always have so many wonderful memories of the people we've met along the way. As with Taltos, we still treasurer most of the friends we've met along the way. We would especially like to Thank Cathy Calhoun of 5800 Dreams for allowing us all those many years ago as new breeders to breed Deirdre to Clyde. From this breeding we produced our famous litter of eight and in our opinion raised the bar in Maine Coons. Thank You Cathy for your kindness and friendship.

More Seraphim Photos

As a child I had a black smoke cat with 12 toes on each foot. He was also death. At night we could always bring him in by flashing a light outside. I have so many memories of this very special childhood friend. 

Joe and I have always had a black cat as long as we've been together. I should say until we started showing and breeding these wonderful Maine Coons, a black cat has always found us. Years ago while we were living in a house in Aspen Colorado a female cat (black of course) found her way upstairs where I was cooking a chicken for our dinner. When Joe came home at the end of the day he found that I had fed our dinner to this stray and hungry cat. We had her for many years. Later we were living in Ohio and were at a friend's birthday party for his daughter. One of the neighbors put a red bow around a black kitten. Our friends didn't want the kitten as they already had two of their own. I can still remember sitting on the deck and falling in love with this kitten who was leaping high into the air catching fish flys! We named him Amos. He lived 23 years. Amos raised our children as well as training our Borzoi to respect the cat!

Now we have Seraphim, who is quite the character. He is fun from sunrise to sunset. This summer he was one of the cats we took to meet and greet at CFA's Cat Museum in Alliance, Ohio. He'll also be exhibiting in the mock agility trials being held at the museum, hosted by Karen Lawrence. Seraphim granded easily in premiership. We're going to let him grow up and perhaps show him in a year or so. Until then he just brings us so much joy!

She's all that plus a phenomenal temperament. Claire's granddaughter is a new grand! Congratulations to GC Dewisplear Bewitched of Irish Coon's, aka Sam. Lynn Hofstetter showed her beautifully to achieve her title! We love girl power in the show ring!
