CH Kistha Peaches-N-Cream

Peaches

CH Kistha Peaches-N-Cream is a shaded cameo girl, who is 3.5 years old.  She's being retired from a breeding program.  The truly special part about her is that she will soon be coming to live with me.


A dear friend, who breeds Persians, wants me to have a healthy Persian and wants me to have a cat I can show.  Peaches is the solution.  I am more than a bit honored that she would entrust Peaches to me.

And I'm terribly excited.

Now, I have thought long and hard about getting Peaches -- this is not a snap decision.  So before people criticize me for getting another cat, for not getting a rescue cat, or for getting a cat to show, please consider this.  I have taken in and cared for the 'unadoptable and unwanted' cats for 15+ years.  I donate considerable sums to help cat rescues.  And I have spent hours helping people with their cats.  At some point, I do think I have earned the right to have a healthy cat just to enjoy and play with (as in show).

You certainly have and she is a beauty! You are giving a good home to a retired queen and that is rescue work as well. No guilt trips, please.

What constitutes a shaded cameo?

A shaded cameo has white fur tipped in red. The chest, stomach, and ear tuffs are white. Her coloring is similar to a silver chinchilla but with red instead of black.
