I've waited for over a year for this girl and her sister to come to us here at Traipse. Both are little mini "Big Macs"! I was pleased to show Mari Mac at 6 months old in Sacramento 01/17 where she was the best bengal kitten on Friday night.
She is a show stopper - Gorgeous pelt, high contrast, stunning rosette markings, super sweet personality, great body length - Fabulous head for a Mink with those big eyes of her mother!
Mari did well in Portland while going against the current best kittens showing on the west coast who is also a Mink but still - She was placed higher than this boy in 3 rings and even got a final. This is saying a lot as the other Mink got BOB and Finaled probably 8 times!

I've tried for years to get a great female from Sno Expo and Frou Frou (like Big Mac) but she just wouldn't come.... I kept having an unusual amount of Males! Alas - Big Mac was able to give me the girl I was looking for with his first litter!~! YAY!
This is the beginning of the offspring from Big Mac. I'm thrilled with the consistency of quality that his is producing!
Honey is now a SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION in only 5 shows!!! Way to go girlfriend :) (It's so much harder for girls to show!)
16th BEST SHORTHAIRED CAT - NW TICA REGION 2016!!
BEST SNOW MINK BENGAL IN TICA!! 2016
SGC Traipse Salt N Pepper
Supremed in June 2016
SBT 080515 027
"Best Kitten Eyes" - Breeders Choice at On Safari 2016 in Spokane, WA!!! Also - Finaled in all THREE RINGS :)
Pepper is a stunning girl and I believe that she is better than her mother - Borealis. Now that Borealis and Morpheus are not part of my breeding program, this girl is one of the most imporaant cats that I've ever bred.
Pepper is growing up into a STUNNING young lady! If you could feel her coat, you'd have an experience in softness that only Morpheus can give a cat! Her large nocturnal eyes, rounded top of head (amazing for a Lynx Point), medium rounded ears and super sweet temperament all go a long way in the show hall for this beauty.
Pepper has acheived her Supreme Grand Champion title - THANKS to Elaine Weitz who gave her the final "Best Cat" in 2016.

QGC TRAIPSE Celestial Comet of Bengalivo
Supreme Grand Champion 2016!
Sire: Sno Explorer Dam: Truffle
This boy is just amazing!! 7 finals against 27 other bengals (53 AB Cats) at his first show as an adult!! 5 finals were part of main show and two of them were in the Bengal Congress (one of these was a BEST CAT!!!) This is a huge tribute to Ivonne who's doing such a great job keeping him in top show shape :) September 2015.
Most recently in Jan 2017, he went to the UK show and received Best of Breed 5 times! This is great considering the #1 Bengal kitten is now an Adult and was at this show - Thanks Ivonne for continuing to show him - he's ranked at 27th Best Bengal so far this year (as of Jan 2017)
This is just the start of his show career - We hope that he can do much much more this year! Congratulations!

This boy is just spectacular - Ivonne is busy showing him around Europe and he just won "Best Over All" in his class! (6 - 10 mo)
This is going to be fun boy to watch develop and I may get the chance to see him again in person at a Netherlands show in October :) It will be fun to see how much he is like his father - Big Mac!
Mistral is now a TICA Champion at his first show! YAY :)
