We've covered Tes and her offspring at this point, so let me get on to the history of the other early girls.

Actually, Pusse's breeding history has also been covered. She had George and Gladys, sired by Ticle in Singapore, and then Peggy and Chris sired by Wun Hung Lo. Pusse had a total of 6 litters and we got kittens from her first and  fifth litters. In addition there were three non-conceives as well.  So much for beautiful Pusse, who is the only original cat (of 4) that turned out to be clear of the solid color gene and she looked it. She was lighter and creamer than the others ----and with absolutely no barring whatsoever. And her ticking was amazingly fine grained. When I talk about ticking, I ask people to close their eyes and envision sand and gravel. Sand is fine grained and smooth looking in comparison to gravel's course and rough appearance. The fine grained "sand" appearance is what I like to see in the breed today. Color, ticking, eyes, ears and balance were her strongest qualities then and now. 

The next female to come along was Gladys, Pusse's daughter sired by Ticle. Her first litter born 1-7-80, sired by Wun, had 2 males and 2 females. Of the 4, 2 died at birth, one died at 3 days and the 4th, a male, went as a pet. Her second litter was by Chris, her half brother, was born  2-3-83 had 2 kittens. A female died at birth and a male was named Changi's Wilburforce who we kept and is the only cat in any pedgrees coming from Gladys. Gladys was then spayed and placed as a pet in a wonderful home where she lived to be 13 years old.    

With Gladys out of the breeding picture, this left only Peggy and Chris as offspring of Pusse.  We of course kept them both and they show up over and over again in pedigrees. Willy, (Wilburforce) shows up in a few but not many by comparison.

Of Tes' early kittens we kept Gin, born 8-11-76  and I remember her very well. She must have weighted 3 pounds soaking wet. Very small and very petite. Gin's first litter was a naturally born litter of  5 sired by Wun.. I don't have a record of her litters. She was then sold as a breeder and lost to the program. The one we kept was Half Pint O'Gin, born 3-6-78, commonly called "Pint". Old notes show she was "very small, about 3 pounds, heavy ticking, VERY large greenish eyes, no ticking on the top of her head, excellent coat texture, close lying coat of medium length". Her littermates were Gin Collins, Gin Rummy, and Dark Gin . If I surmise correctly, Dark Gin was a solid color kitten

And now there are enough cats to write about that it really starts to get complicated because, with the numbers now available, it starts branching ever wider.

Little Singh Bull imported in 1987 by the late Gerald Mayes. Registered
