RainForest Ruby Two Shoes

Ruby was a female F4 from ALC Kabuki, foundation queen of RainForest Bengals. Her son, RainForest Rubys Parting Gift was my first kitten/cat to win On Safari Best of the Best Bengal Kitten and multiple Breeders Choice Awards: Best Head, Best Eyes etc.

RainForest Hamachi

Sire: OS RW SGC RainForest Wasabi
Dam: RainForest About Face
DOB: Spring 2010
HCM: parents & grandparents negative at older ages
PK-Deficiency  N/N Normal

This SBT Bengal kitten comes closest to our ideal than any other kitten we have produced in 17 years of breeding.  His head and eyes and nose leather look like an F1 or F2. Pictures just don’t do his captivating eyes justice. Even his ears and earset are reminiscent of the early generation Bengals and I find ears to be the most difficult feature. His black outlines are all selfed hairs (black from tip to skin).  He has a good flow to his pattern without vertical bars behind the shouldersl. He’s a sweet boy too.  HCM screened negative behind him 2-3 generations on both sides, some cats over 8 years old. An ALC Kabuki F6 and ALC Taro F6.

HCM: dam negative at 8 yrs, sire negative at 6 yrs

What a fabulous male this boy is! I love him, especially for his sweetness.

He has his mother Ruby’s huge round eyes, beautiful head type, wonderful warm coloring; he is partially whited. It was a thrill for me to have other breeders recognize him at On Safari.  He has screened HCM negative, as have both parents and a couple of the grandparents and several of the great grandparents at older ages. Great structure.  He’s an ALC Kabuki F5.

Best Shorthair Cat in show, receiving the “Sonny Award”

I took ‘Raina’ to her first show at two years old; to the 2009 On Safari show, just to help fill the needed number of cats in the adult classes and she WON!  I was so shocked and thrilled. She has a very strong personality and is a major cuddler, but isn’t happy when being carried across the room here at home, nor does she like being “examined.”  I had always hesitated to show her, thinking she would be difficult for judges to handle. She turned out to be the perfectly behaved cat, appealing to many of the judges. She went on to receive her Quad Grand Championship in just 2 shows and her supreme in just 3.5 shows.

Raina is the one of the sweetest, most confident cats here, friendly with any stranger she meets and intensely tuned into me. She likes to paw thru and examine my hair just like any F1.  She has a tight unglittered, non-fading coat that glistens with such a high sheen that people think she is glittered.

A 4th generation cat from the ALC Taro descent, with a strong early generation look to her face & body, including partially whited underneath. She looks very similar to her great grandmother, Judith Lindeman’s F1, Bundas Shakti of Awagati Bengals.
