ERIC THE RED
classic (blotched) tabby
You gave us a lot of joy, you will be always happy in another world !!
are waiting for a red-silver boy from the US breeders,
but he never arrives!" This was the message we
sent to our friend Michiko
Sasamoto in Japan. After that she decided
to give us a red boy which she thought of keeping for
her own cattery. It was really a great surprise and
with pleasure we flew him home soon afterwards. What
a wonderful huge
kitten he was!! He is named Eric
after the famous red-bearded Viking explorer. Eric has
physically developed to be a a very large cat: at the
age of 6
months he weighed already 6kg: at the first
TICA show in Austria he attended, he was awarded as
BEST OF BEST KITTEN IN SHOW.
colossus boy has
a full and square muzzle with a strong chin, large and
round gold eyes, a very impressive body both in terms
of musculature and boning. He has a long and fluffy
tail. His fur is uniformly intense and a warm red color
with a beautifully contrasted classic pattern.
has also a very sweet character. He is "simpatico"
- playful and gentle, and quite an inquisitive guy!
mother Miss Maple,
is from the Canadian Hibou cattery ( CFA member). His
father is one of the most famous cats in Japan,
Cosmicoon Shogun of Williamina.
had his first test of HCM & HD test in April '02

In October 27th '06, all of a sudden he was showing the problem of the respiration. I brought him to the vet. but in 10 minuits after arrival he passed away. Diagnosty of vet was the lacking of oxygen caused fulfilled water in his lung. I was so sorry that I was not able to help him as it was so quick :-(( He was a very sweet giant boy whom I never had. I hope he will have also happy life in another world.
