"MERICA" Leopard Magic Miss Merica My Love Sire: Champion Aspengold Gamblin Man Dam: Lillee Miss Bubba of Leopard Magic D.O.B.: April 15, 2014 Merica carries Marble.
University of California at Davis Veterinary Genetics Lab DNA test results for her parents: (Copies of these parent results are included in all Kitten Folders and are available for viewing.) PK Def: N/N (Pyruvate Kinase Deficiency [Inherited Fatal Anemia Disease]: Negative/Negative....Not even a carrier.) PRA: N/N (Progressive Retinal Atrophy [Inherited Blindness Disease]: Negative/Negative...Not even a carrier.) Since both of her parents are N/N for both diseases, she has to be N/N also, aka N/N "by parentage".
Below is a slideshow of photos taken on August 13, 2014 when Merica was 17 weeks old. She developed into an AMAZING Bengal girl!!!! She is super, super sweet and should also be a large girl. She has a wonderful profile, nice rounded back-skull, puffy whisker pads, strong chin, large nocturnal eyes, perfect thick symetrical tail, nice bone structure/gait, amazing unique rosettes (including a heart-shaped rosette and question mark!) with diagonal flow to her pattern and NO RIB BARS! And did I mention her super contrast and heavy glitter??? She even loves to go for car rides already! I could not be any happier with this girl!
Below is a slideshow of photos of Merica taken Sept. 22, 2014 at 5 months old. My daughter, Shelby, and I took Merica and our Rat Terrier, Precious, out to a nearby gorgeous lake to enjoy the Fall weather. It was Merica's first time wearing a harness and walking on a leash.... and she did fantastic! And she definitely received lots of attention from strangers, as any leopard-looking cat out walking on a leash is bound to do!
