Aksum Abyssinians Specializing in: Award-winning Chocolates and Rare Sex-linked Reds

STUDS

Registered Name:  Aksum White Room

Pet Name:  Mikey

Date of birth:  February 1, 2011

Registered in TICA, shown in New Traits

 

Mikey is a very affectionate cream boy who consistently sires sweet, healthy kittens.  He and his daughter Hope are the foundation for our sex-linked red Abyssinians.  The goal is to have healthy cream females.  It is a long, difficult process because we are careful not to inbreed and the cream color is very rare.

 

Mikey is also a blue carrying cinnamon/sorrel/CFA-red.  His genes have been tested from a cheek swab with the University of California in Davis at the Veterinary Genetics Lab.  He is negative for the two genetic diseases we can currently test for - PKDef (causes life-threatening anemia) and PRA (causes blindness).  His blood type is A.  His ancestors are mostly from the U.S. and the UK.  Mikey lives with his co-owner in Iowa at Sumatra Cattery.

Pet Name:  Bo

Date of birth:  March 21, 2015

Registered in TICA & CFA

Shown to a Grand Champion in CFA in one show plus one ring

 

Bo is our son of Jaxx, our co-owned International Winner.  He is very intelligent and healthy.  His kittens are beautiful and also healthy.  His ancestors are from the U.S., Russia, the UK, and Australia.  Bo has a traditional Abyssinian pedigree.

 

Bo is a ruddy carrying cinnamon and dilute.  He is negative for PRA but is a carrier for PKDef.  So we always make sure the queen is not also a carrier of PKDef before breeding them to him.  Carrier status never results in disease.
