Allmycats-- Yes, I know the Turkish Van breeder you met! We're good pals Missi's blue boy (Grover) is actually out of my breeding. He was the coolest kitten growing up, so tolerant. I could toss him in the air and flip him upside-down and he'd be purring all the way. Did you get to feel his coat? Just like a rabbit. . . Amazingly enough, he was from a litter of 9, and all survived.
Missi's newest litter has the same sire as our very first show cat, Otto. They're all cute and very well marked. Keep her info in your files, she will have many exciting litters in the future.
If you're trying to decide between Vans and Coons, she should be a good person to talk to. Missi has a lot of experience with Maine Coons as well.
