Sunrise's pedigree


Aksum Tequila Sunrise is a rare and beautiful chocolate queen. She is a second generation chocolate born here at Aksum Abyssinians August 16, 2011. Her beautiful lilac mother Moonlight was the 2009 TICA International Best Lilac Abyssinian and her lilac grandmother was the first lilac Abyssinian to achieve the Grand Champion title in TICA.

Sunrise is a ONE SHOW GRAND CHAMPION and the 2012 Best International Chocolate Abyssinian in TICA! We are so proud of our girl!

Sunrise is now co-owned by TICA Judge Rene Knapp of Pentaclecats. She won Rene over, which takes some doing for a cat judge, of course, especially one who also breeds Abys (judges know more about their own breeds and are more critical as a result).

Sunrise is pure Abyssinian 12 generations back on her mother's side and many more generations back on her father's side.

Thanks so much to Alexy Abyssinians for letting us have her back for our chocolate breeding program! (She was their promised kitten back and was a generous gift because they know how much I care about and promote the chocolate Abyssinians.)

Her beautiful sire Rocket was chosen by Cat Fancy Magazine to help represent the Abyssinian breed in the 2011 issue dedicated to Abyssinians, in a photo by Preston.

Sunrise was bred to the elegant, sweet Kopper for more of a chance of getting a chocolate in the litter of kittens (50%). Sunrise had three beautiful kittens on October 9, 2012 -- a chocolate male, a lilac female, and a cinnamon male.
