Flamenco litter 2008                                   Moved


Carmen Amaya           white oddeye         TUA w 63                        Pedigree


Carmen Amaya was the third kitten to be born, but the first girl! She was all white but for a thumbprint of blue on top of her head. So her white is covering blue genes.


Carmen has gotten her name from a world famouse flamenco dancer Carmen Amaya, also called the Queen of the gypsies. She was one of the first female dancer to dance in trousers with strong zapateado, stamping.


Carmen has move to New Zeeland together with her sister Estrella. At the cattery VonImp they will be the first breeding cats of Turkish Angora on New Zeeland. The trip went very well and the girls arrived in good conditions without any problems at all. A relief for everyone.


Congratulations to Carmen. During easter 2009 she participated in a show in New Zeeland. She won three times "Best in Show Longhair Kitten", once "Best in Show All-breed Kitten" and twice runner-up "Best in Show All-breed Kitten"!!! Star quality!


Carmen is now expecting babies with CH (N) Veslegard's Feyazz. The babies are due to november!
