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.
